So you’ve got your tree. You’ve whipped up your tree skirt. Now it’s time to priss-out your pine with all the trimmings apropos of the Christmas holiday. I’ve got a few projects for ye; details when you link through. Suffice to say, all four ideas are simple, and all four can make use of secondhand goods:

SECOND-USE PAPER ORNAMENTS via Re-Nest/Kate’s Paperie

STUFFY, CLOTHY BIRD ORNAMENTS via The Purl Bee

And, my personal favorite:

HALF-EATEN GINGERBREAD MAN FELT ORNAMENTS via Elsie Marley/ThreadBanger

Of course, if you’re neither a seamster, nor a paper-queen, try this Slash Photo Wreath, handmade for me last year by my crafty pal, The Choir:

MATERIALS

  • Wooden photo wreath ornament, available at most craft supply stores
  • Tempera paint
  • An image of your beloved (or Slash, nearly one in the same for me), clipped from a magazine or newspaper

MAKE IT

Paint your wreath in a design and color-scheme of your choice. (The Choir went trad, to offset the content.) Then, snip your image and slip it into the frame. Hang on tree, and play your sweetest November Rain air guitar solo.

And, if you’re not hot to deck your halls with these ornaments, check out ThreadBanger’s DIY Ornament Roundup. Some good ‘uns there, no jive.
