Plus, homemade ornaments are much cheaper and you can design and create them in any way you want!
Our latest ornament is one I have seen floating around the internet for some time and, since our house is riddled with a nasty cold, it seemed like a perfect time to give it a try.
So we have...
What You Need:
Hot glue gun
Black paint or markers
Orange paint, markers, or paper
String or pipe cleaners
This craft really is super simple. You just make a circle of hot glue on your wax paper and fill it in. I made one snowman where I smoothed out the glue with a popsicle stick but it actually ends up looking better if you just leave it to settle on its own.
When the glue is still semi-wet you just paint on the snowman's face!
Then, either hot glue string onto the back or, do like I did, and poke a hole in the top and thread a pipe cleaner through.
