 These DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments are an easy way to make some fun new ornaments for your tree this year. Get creative and decorate them however you like!

My Christmas tree is pretty eclectic. It’s filled with homemade ornaments and ornaments we’ve picked up along the way during our travels. I love that we bring out our crazy mix of ornaments year after year and the whole family loves to reminisce when we pull each one out.  Since many of our ornaments are from places we’ve traveled, they are not all “Christmasy” necessarily.  I decided to make a few DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments to add into our collection this year and I think they will fit in perfectly with the homemade ornaments we have.
