Christmas is in a week, and if it weren’t for this season’s sicknesses, I would have had these ideas up for you sooner! Better late than never, though.
I’m not the first to think of this idea; I’m posting it to spark your own ideas. If you don’t feel very talented, or have kids that like to make a mess, this one is for you.
(And if you’re super talented and have patience, there are more ideas below.)
Here are some of the items we used for our ornaments:
- Empty glass bulbs
- moss, various colors and textures
- shredded paper
- glitter (per request of my 4 year old)
Other options are:
- Moss and bark (what we did)
- tiny pinecones
- newborn keepsake hat
- graduation tassel
- flower petals (from wedding/funeral/special occasion)
- Epsom Salt & a glue stick (makes a snowy look)
- dip seasoning mix
- dandylion seeds
- hot cocoa
- yarn and rope
- sheet music
It didn’t even take much convincing to see if G wanted to help. She loves putting small things in even smaller spaces.
I’m partial to more natural materials, G is partial to glitter.
Combine both of those, and the result is beautiful!
