Sorta Handmade

Some people have themed Christmas trees with coordinating decorations and ornaments and I have to admit, I have a themed tree too. Our theme is Handmade.

Our tree has painted Walnuts, Salt Dough Ornaments, Clay Ornaments, amoung ornaments that my children have made.

These are semi-handmade. I did purchase the unfinished ceramic ornament and made it my own with paint. Each ornament ran me 33¢ a piece back when Walmart actually had a Craft Section. The ornamnets (such as the 1st Christmas bear) that stand upright came from Michael’s. All were painted with Acrylic Paint. Some had a crackle paint applied to them as well.

I found these to be an affordable option for those who want to Do It Yourself but don’t have the time or ability to make their own dough. And they have a nice appearance.

Id love see other ideas an options for.more DIY Christmas Ornaments. You can never have too many handmade ornaments hanging from your tree.
