Home made ornaments

Now that your christmas is ready, it's time to get some inspiration to add some home made ornaments and have holidays workshops with your kids. Have a look at these Martha Stewart great ideas.
I really liked these ones easy to made...
First she reminds us that the basic technique for all the ornaments is to bend a pipe cleaner in half and twist once at the top for a loop.
Enjoy first above this home made mobile, crafted from cookies turned in a simple, pretty decoration.
You can buy some wooden decorations and let your kids covered them with tinsel and glitter.

Colorful stray buttons can also be used as Christmas ornaments. Time to sort your old buttons...

And what a great idea: Use inexpensive aluminum cutters and turn them in ornaments.
Happy Holidays!
