Christmas Ornaments I Plan to MAKE this Year :)

Growing up, decorating the Christmas tree was made extra special because I had handmade ornaments by my grandma, myself and my sister, my mom, and various other family members. I dont know what it is exactly, but Ill always feel that handmade is more meaningful! I could have a tree full of expensive glass ornaments and it just wouldnt be the same. Not as fun or as personal.

Unfortunately I dont have the same ornaments I had growing up, but I plan to start making special keepsake ornaments this Christmas! And I have my mom working on some to send us, too. 🙂

Here are some of the tutorials Ill be following:
