These Christmas DIY ornaments are the best because you can make so many and they are all different! And if you want, instead of using glue to seal the ornaments, just use tiny pieces of tape to secure them shut and then open them up to make new ones every single year! Wouldn’t that be an awesome tradition to start with your kids!
Easy DIY Ornaments
Basically, you open the ornaments and put a little bit of crinkle paper in them. Also, use some foam stickers and stick them together back to back so they don’t stick to the sides. Throw them in! We use the green glittery stickers and the star stickers.
To make these creative handmade ornaments even more interesting, add some glitter! Use several colors to make it even more fun! We liked the gold glitter and then the bigger green glitter.
Once your kids have put in enough of what they want, they can close them up and seal them. Like I said, they can use clear glue or a small piece of tape, in case you wanted to reuse that ornament in the future. Give the ornaments a good shake so the glitter sticks to the sides to give them a pretty glittery effect. Add the rat tail ribbon and attach it to the ornament to hang it up.
