There are many different ways that you can make your own Christmas ornaments.
Every year in my home we always used glass, fancy store purchased ornaments, but something was always missing.
So I decided two years ago that nothing was going up in my house unless it was either handmade or fresh from outside.
It seems like every year we get too caught up in buying gifts, going to parties, etc. instead of the real meaning of Christmas. Now every year when my kids and I get together to bake goodies for people or make our decorations, it means so much more to all of us.
We make new cookie ornaments, glue ornaments, fresh fruit ornaments, wooden ornaments; we decorate with fresh evergreens and holly and even make our popcorn garland. With so many homemade Christmas ornaments and decorations, our house couldn't look any more cheery!
