Homemade DIY Christmas Ornaments – Easy Handmade

Making homemade DIY Christmas ornaments is one of my family’s Christmas traditions. The tradition started when I was a child. Every year we chose a different ornament style, and everyone made their unique design of that ornament.

While unwrapping Christmas ornaments the other day and I found some that I made as a child. Christmas is a beautiful time to reflect on memories made with family and friends. 

How to Make DIY Christmas Ornaments 

Last year I purchased a Cricut Maker, and that changed the way I make Christmas ornaments and more. Those hard-to-cut felt ornaments, banners, and decor are easy and fast to make with the Cricut Maker. So my DIY Christmas tree ornaments and decorations are so fun to drive in half the time and effort.

Easy Felt Ornaments

These felt Christmas ornaments were the first thing I made with my Cricut Maker (scissors can cut them). You can see them below and read about them in this earlier post

Embroidery Hoop Decorations

Embroidery hoops are another fond memory from my childhood. When I was a child, my grandmother taught me to embroider using an embroidery hoop.

Now, however, I use embroidery hoops and my Cricut to make Christmas ornaments and door hangers. The possibilities are endless for embroidery hoop ornaments.

I choose fabrics for my embroidery hoop ornaments that coordinate my handmade Christmas stockings, tree skirts, and decor.

The photo below shows our Farmhouse Christmas tree with ornaments decorated with my Circut, such as the embroidery hoop ornaments and the handpainted blubs with vinyl decals. See how I made those faux glass ornaments HERE.

Mr. KAH made me this blanket ladder to hold our Christmas stocking (see how to make one HERE).

Pinecone Homemade Christmas Ornaments

My daughter, Olivia, and I gathered pinecones from our yard to craft some almost free nature-inspired Christmas Gnome ornaments. This easy pinecone DIY Christmas ornament craft has an excellent step-by-step tutorial you can find on Olivia’s blog HERE. Olivia made the pom-pom with yarn we had on hand too.
