Easy Peasy Inexpenssive DIY Holiday Ornaments

Aaah the Holidays.  A time for family, joy, happiness, feasting, stress, running haggard, endless shopping, the list goes on and on.

This year save yourself some time and money with these easy peasy and inexpensive DIY Holiday Ornaments.

Trimmings on a tree can get quite costly, so here's a few inexpensive ornaments you can make yourself, or with the kids.  Save the money and share a special memory in the making.

Got a burnt out lightbulb and not sure what to do with it?  Now you can keep it and reuse it for an ornament.

Reindeer Lightbulb Ornament
Parental assistance required!

Paper Bauble
Some parental assistance required.

Salt Dough Decorations
I remember making these as a child, I always want to eat them :)
Salt dough, very pliable but yucky tasting.

Ribbon Candy Garland
Simply ingenius!

Pinecone Decadance
This one is more or less self explanatory.  I don't have a link for this pretty ornament, but it would look great on your tree wrapped in fancy ribbon.

Buttons Galore
Again this is pretty self explanatory.  Use wire to weave in and out of buttons, twist into a hoop at the top and garnish with a ribbon bow.

 Felt Gingerbread Ornaments
*How About Orange*
These are too cute and easy to make.  Click the link for the design.

Remember, the Holidays are about you and your family.  Start some traditions today and watch them bloom into a yearly event done by you and the next generation and the one after that and so on.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a wonderful Christmas, when you're with your family, you're already blessed with the best gift.

What traditions do you have?

I'm gonna try my hand at the bitten gingerbread man. Hopefully he'll turn out alright, but knowing my sewing skills he'll be lopsided and missing an eye lol :P
