Happy Black Friday!!!! The officially unofficial beginning of being able to speak of Christmas without people sighing at you.
Last week I shared with you 10 fantastic garland ideas and for the next four weeks, I will be delivering to you, my dear friend, a plethora of ornaments that can be made by YOU, for you, or for anyone you would like to sprinkle with Christmas joy and tree trimming necessities.
An amazing group of bloggers have shared their most favorite ornaments with me and I have broken them up by loose categories so don’t get too specific on me, ok? This week is classified as traditional and there are 16 ornaments!!!!! So hang onto your hats, or ummm stockings 🙂
I have got to start with this little elf from Tikkido. It looks like it should be in a Pottery Barn catalogue doesn’t it?
And if there are elves…there’s gotta be Santa. This Santa buckle ornament from Whats Ur Home Story is absolutely adorable.
Let’s not forget the meaning of Christmas. This nativity ornament from Shaken Together Life will serve to remind you why you have a tree to begin with.
I just love the “Believe” reminder at this time of year. There are so many things to believe in and Create and Babble has given us this ornament to admire.
We have all seen salt dough ornaments, but One Project Closer adds a little something extra to make them special.
This fun, mini paper wreath from Lovely etc. would be great to make from Christmas music pages.
These paper ornaments from Major Hoff takes a Wife could also be used as gift decorations.
Fern Avenue gives us a great idea for making your own mercury glass inspired ornaments.
Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer made these adorable mitten ornaments! As a mom, I want to find all the old mittens my kids’ little hand have outgrown and add a little date tag in the mitten and stand in amazement at how fast they grow and we hardly realize.
The face on this little snowman from The Flamingo Chronicals brings me back to a childhood with, what is now know as, vintage decorations.
Vintage Paint and More made these sweet wreaths from button hole ribbon. They could be made with lots of scrap ribbon or lace options.
My Life from Home made these super simple paper punch ornaments and I just love them in the traditional colors.
One More Time made these great ornaments that remind me of victorian ornaments.
One more from Tikkido, cause I can’t help but love her stuff! I paid a LOT for these type of icicle ornaments once. I love them, but now I can fill my whole tree with them.
These feathers from Holy Craft could be customized with any color you want.
And finally, what is more traditional than these baking soda ornaments from The DIY Dreamer?
Be sure to check out last week’s round up of all the garland your little heart could desire!
