Kid-Friendly DIY Christmas Ornaments

I'm always trying to find cute crafts we can do at home before Christmas. Making ornaments is cute, cheap and you can also gift them to family member and neighbors. Here are some that I did with things we already had around the house. 


Ribbon Trees













For the first ornament I just used some twigs I found outside and ribbon I had from last year. The twine is what I used to make the loop at the en, but and kind of string, yarn rope or even wire would work. 

All you do is put the string and tie it on the stick--seriously, that's all! I tried to do it longer on the bottom and shorter on the top, but it gets hard to tie. On the second one I didn't worry about the length and I just trimmed them with scissors after they were tied on. 
If you wanted to add something extra you could use spray glitter, or glue a homemade star at the top. 



I did this one with my 8 year old. The only difficult part was tieing some of the pieces that I cut too short :)

Popcicle Stick Ornaments


I used hot glue on these to make sure they stayed together, but you can use regular Elmer's glue too, it's up to you! The possabilites are endless, but this is what we came up with. You can decorate them with sequins, buttons, tissue paper, rhinestones, paint, stickers...ect


Button Wreath

Buttons and pipecleaners, it doesn't get easier than this. Just thread the buttons on the pipecleaner and twist off when you get to the end. Use ribbon, yarn or twine so you can hang it on your tree. 



Here is our finished ornaments! Pretty cute if I do say so myself.
