Make Your Own Christmas Tree Decorations

Make Your Own Christmas Tree Decorations

Christmas is coming and one of our own family traditions as is the tradition of most families is the dressing of the Christmas tree. Each year, out would come the Christmas box, which was carefully stacked from the year before and we would as a family dress the tree. I often thought wouldn't it be nice if some of the decorations were handmade by members of the family, somehow it would add to the occasion.
So here is Readers Gazette's pick of handmade Christmas decoration guides

Juicy Bits Christmas Tree Owl

Christmas Tree Owl These delightful owls are made out of felt and you do need the ability to sew. I think they would make great little gifts as well as being ornaments for the Christmas tree. For more information on how to make these visit Jessica Levitt's website and blog Juicy Bits sewing design family life . Not only does she have 200 plus articles on her sewing and crafting but also a craft book out also.


Glittery Pinecone Ornaments

Glittery Pinecones These are kid friendly and I am sure kids would get a great deal of pleasure creating a ornament for their Christmas tree, not only that but you get the added delight of a walk in the forest gathering the pinecones. Apart from the pinecones, you are going to need glue, paint brush, a ribbon and some glitter. These were found at Mom Spotted Pinecone.
