30 Homemade Ornaments for the Kids

ChristmasAll Ages71 Comments

Thirty homemade ornaments to make with your kids for keepsakes this Christmas, or just for fun!

I especially love the globe ornaments, that’s an affiliate link, so I even included a section of just those!

Six keepsake ornaments. Ten globe ornaments. And even fourteen homemade ornaments that the kids can make!

So call the kids over as you scroll through these and decide which ornament you’ll make today! And then choose another to make tomorrow! I think you’ll have enough to do one each day until Christmas!

        When I was a kid, my parents split up and my mom took all the Christmas ornaments, leaving my dad with nothing but the lights. So when my brothers and I went over for Christmas, Dad had gotten a tree. We put it up and he went to go get the ornaments and found nothing but the lights. My brothers and I sat ourselves down and made a ton of ornaments and hung em up. Everything on the tree was homemade. We were so proud of ourselves.

    The salt dough hand print looks lovely! I might want to have my kids do this. I am looking at adding personal touches to my tree, so through the years my ornaments would also represent my family’s history and maybe in time, our legacy. I already have antique glass ornaments from Russia and Murano, and I am thinking adding small picture frames, personalized glass bauble, and hand prints will make my tree more meaningful.
