With the Christmas season fast approaching, it will soon be time to deck up those X'mas trees and whip up all those mouth-watering dishes. 'Tis the season to be jolly and time to go 'ho, ho, ho'. 'Tis the time for decorations, loads of shopping, and showering gifts on your loved ones.
Making homemade items is enjoyable and it also gets the entire family involved. Homemade Christmas ornaments are a lot of fun to make and also give your Christmas trees a personalized touch. The satisfaction and pleasure that you get from making your own Christmas ornaments can never ever be replaced by hanging ornaments bought off the shelf.
Handcrafted Christmas Ornaments
Use Mica tiles to display your family photographs! The front portion can showcase the picture whereas the backside of the tile can be decorated using ribbons and paper since both the sides will be visible, once the tile is hung by a string or a chain. The edges of the tiles can also be decorated using colored paper and satin ribbons.
Dough can also be used to create cute and zany shapes which can be painted over once it dries. The process can be a little time-consuming as they need to mold well to achieve the desired result. Mix salt in it to keep the insects at bay whilst it dries. Once you have painted the ornaments, make tiny holes at the top to string a ribbon through it.
The cotton could be used to make an ornament and here is how. Take a ball of cotton and drape a piece of white lace on it. Tie a yellow ribbon around the waist area and use a little more yellow ribbon to create a halo like impression. Make at least ten of these cotton angels and tie them together with a white ribbon so that you can drape it around the tree.
