Handmade Holiday Ornaments

In Kids, Living by Guest Writer2 Comments

I can’t think of a better way to get your kids excited about the holiday season than getting them involved and having them make ornaments to decorate the tree.  Plus the added bonus for mom to have keepsakes for years to come.

In all honesty, there are more than a thousand different folks out there that are far more crafty than me to show you how to make some wonderful keepsake ornaments.  So rather than fumbling around showing you all I’ve done with sticks, glue, glitter, and paper, I’d take the Savvy Mom approach and point you to some of the best I’ve seen along with how-tos!

Here are some of my favorites:
