Cheap, homemade Christmas ornaments

Our Christmas tree has a few purchased ornaments on it, but most are paper things I've made. For a recap of the tutorials:

Modular balls
Flowers
Teardrops
Snowflakes
Ice cream cones
Striped bulbs
Retro foam ornaments
Origami garland (not on the tree at the moment, since it's in the process of getting longer.)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

There might be a couple, if you're a good girl. For instance, that light green one with deer at the base of the tree might be for you. Might be.

So many great ideas! Thank you :) There is no reason to stop decorating now that Christmas is over.. it will still be winter for a good while here, sparkly and colourful things will still be in great demand - happy 2013! :)

Love your blog, been following you for a while now! Could you tell us more about the interesting wall art behind the tree?

Jessica Jones said...

Sure! It's a bunch of Penguin book cover postcards. See this post for how I made it.

Thank you for the paper ornament tutorials! I'm a little late this year, but prepared for next year! I will have to make double so I can decorate my gifts with these as well. Cheers!
