There is something to be said about homemade ornaments. DIY ornaments give your Christmas tree Victorian charm with crafts, common kitchen ingredients and the original festive feeling of Christmas. Fresh cranberries, popcorn, a DIY chain garland and homemade ornaments are traditions that add to the nostalgia of the holidays!
Every Christmas I add new homemade ornaments to my tree. My Victorian, natural themed, Christmas tree is always my favorite part of decorating! Just pulling out the ornaments gets me inspired and ready to start adding to my collection!
Here are some of the ornaments I have in my collection that I love making!
