Top 5 DIY Christmas Ornaments to Spice Up Your Tree
Decorate your Christmas tree with these adorable DIY Christmas ornaments that will make your tree look better than ever before. They are cheap and easy to make and are guaranteed to impress friends and family alike.
Decorating the Christmas tree in early December is one of the best times of the year. It marks the beginning of the holiday season and adds a special feeling of warmth and coziness to your home. Ever since I was a child, I loved to decorate the tree with beautiful glass ornaments. In our family, most ornaments in our tree had a special meaning. We all had our own ornament and there were plenty of homemade DIY Christmas ornaments hanging from our tree as well. Now, after I’ve grown older, it is these home-made Christmas ornaments and other DIY winter home decorations that mean the most to me.
Personally, I love to make DIY Christmas ornaments. They look cute, sure, but this is not the main reason. The true reason why I love DIY Christmas ornaments is the fact that they have a special meaning. Instead of the regular ones you buy in the shop, these homemade ornaments add a special and personal touch to your Christmas decor. Added to that, they also simply are fun to make as they treat you to a fun-filled afternoon to spend with your kids or friends. Below, LANGRIA has listed down our top 5 DIY Christmas ornaments that we’re sure you’ll love.
DIY Frozen Snowflake Ornaments
When I think about winter and Christmas, one of the first things that come to mind is snow. I have always loved the snow. It’s white, soft, and looks gorgeous. Having a white Christmas truly is one of the best gifts to me. The fact that I love snow so much can also be seen back in the following DIY Christmas ornaments. These cute ‘’Frozen’’ inspired snowflakes look truly adorable and they add a special and colorful touch to your Christmas tree. If you love snow just as much as I do, or if you have a daughter who loves the movie Frozen, these snowflake Christmas ornaments are perfect for you.
To make these snowflake Christmas ornaments all you need are some standard items that you, most likely, have laying around in your house already. You’ll need some mini craft sticks, blue glitter, craft glue, white paint, and a pretty ribbon. Once you have gathered your supplies, making the actual ornaments is relatively simple. Simply paint 4 mini craft sticks white and glue them together in the shape of a snowflake. Once the paint is dry, add the blue glitter and ribbon, and you’ll be all set. That’s how easy it is!
