OMG, love this list of unique Christmas ornaments that I can make myself, especially the 4th and 8th ones! I was looking for some handmade Christmas ornaments to make--this is perfect. Can't wait to make some for myself and to give as gifts.

I love me some store-bought Christmas ornaments.  BUT, the ones I really love can be kind of expensive, so it has taken us about 12 years to build a large enough collection to fill our tree.  That is totally fine, but this year we added a tree to our dining room and I don't want it to take another 12 years to collect ornaments for it, so I plan to make unique Christmas ornaments for it with my own two hands.  I've already made some, and I scoured the internet finding other unique Christmas ornaments to inspire me.

Bottom line, you can make gorgeous and unique Christmas ornaments yourself without spending a fortune!  I've picked out some of the most unique Christmas ornaments I could find and you can make all of these yourself. Handmade Christmas ornaments also make great gifts for friends and family :)

Before you check out all these fun ornaments,I wanted to let you know that I have some gorgeous Christmas printables in my super affordable printable art shop that I think you will love! You can check them out below:
