Come On, Get Ornament Happy

IMG_5523I do love Christmas time.  It’s a wonderful holiday and I love seeing all of the lights that decorate homes and businesses.  There’s something special about the holidays (besides all of the madness).  This year, I wanted to customize my parents tree since I don’t have room for a tree at my own place.  These are extremely easy and you can really customize these for your own holiday needs.  However, I can’t lie.  This idea really came to me while standing in a store staring at some seriously hideous and ridiculously expensive ornaments.  Have you ever thought to yourself, I could do that for way cheaper and do a much better job?!  Well, you probably can.

IMG_5521(This idea originated with the idea of making snow globe ornaments.  All you need are some clear ornaments and some sparkles.)

IMG_5529(Then I thought, what other S#!@ can I put in these ornaments?!  Coffee beans!)

IMG_5534(I put a few different kinds of sprinkles in there but you could really pick any kind you’d like)

While my mom and I were working on these we thought of other good ingredients for ornament makings.  Advil, for the everyday drinker.  Dog food, for the pet owners with a death wish on their Christmas tree.  Matches, for the over zealous pyro.  Well you get the idea.  You can get crafty and have fun with it.  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so stop resisting it and just embrace it already!

  1. Brit, last year I made homemade ornaments for my new home owners. I slipped some fake snow in the bulp, found keys at the local craft store that fit thru the hole, and then customized with painting 1st Christmas at 309 Lakewood Lane adding their names. Took me a while, but I think this year when they trim their tree (if they saved it) they will be smiling. I always fall for special ornaments that commemorate a year or significant event. Wish you could help me trim my tree.
