Christmas tree decoartions ROUNDUP


Let's start from the beginning:

1. This felt Christmas tree ornament from this heart of mine is a lovely handmade decoration that would go perfectly with any color...

2.  Get an inspiration from these beautiful cupcake liner angels from Happy DIY (gedane.over-blog) A cute project to make together with your kids!

3. Trying to add some rustic glam to your tree? Try out this glitter twine ball ornament made by Lauren at The thinking closet!

4. All you need for this handmade angel made at Canary Street Crafts are a wooden peg, a piece of fabric and some twine. Easy to make and beautiful, a perfect combination.

5. These beautiful white homemade ornaments were made by Maija from Ukkonooa, using modelling dough from cornstarch and baking soda.

6. These gorgeous colorful scrap ribbon tree ornaments from Fireflies and Mud Pies are simple enough for kids to make!

8. A cotton-ball pom pom garland, made by Amy from HomeRemedies requires basic materials only, it's budget-friendly, yet so beautiful and simple to make! And it can turn into a nice threading activity for kids...

9. And off course I can't stay away from my currently favorite Christmas tree ornaments I've made recently. Toddler-friendly, they can be used for kids play too! They are already being tossed around our home and rearranged and played with :)

10. And a sneak-peak: our Christmas tree cones. No link, no post. YET. I made them last year, just like that! The first few were made when I had some scrap materials on hand and half an hour to spare. Just a peek into what I intend to explain in detail some other time - but for now, just a photo :)
