A Christmas tree wouldn't be the same without ornaments, it would just be a large evergreen that looks out of place in your home. There's no better way to deck out your family's Christmas tree with all the spirit in the land than to make your own ornaments.
Homemade Christmas ornaments are fabulous for two reasons. First, with all the many elements that comprise the holiday of Christmas, the cost easily adds up. Homemade ornaments are a great money-saver because you can use any materials you like, and as crafter you probably have tons to choose from. Second, store-bought ornaments don't have the same feel as those you make with your own two hands. Your kids will never feel nostalgic about generic ornaments that you put up each year and then take down and pack away. Make it a Christmas tradition in your family to craft your own ornaments and add some extra special meaning to decorating your Christmas tree.
This section is packed with plenty of ideas to you give and your family inspiration for homemade Christmas ornaments. Pick a project that everyone will love and get started creating ornaments you'll all cherish.

One of the many Christmas traditions that people hold dear is sending Christmas cards. Everyone loves to make them, and everyone loves to receive them. In your adult years, it's an opportunity to catch people up on how your family's year went and to send your best holiday wishes. In your childhood years, it's a great way to generate excitement for the days (or months) leading up to Christmas.
Even more fun (if everyone is going to be honest) is the traditional Christmas gift exchange. Whether your family opens presents on Christmas Eve or waits until Christmas morning, everyone loves the gift-giving and gift-getting experience. While kids' financial sources are a bit limited, they're imagination and creativity are boundless.
