My mom started my ornament collection when I was young so that when I moved out I would have a collection for my very own tree. Last year was my nephew’s first Christmas and I decided to start his ornament collection with a hand-painted plastic ball ornament and a note saying “Every year you’ll get from me, an ornament for the tree, that way when you are grown, you can decorate a tree of your own”.
I think handmade ornaments are a sweet way to decorate the tree, don’t you agree? Not knowing what ornament I wanted to make him this year, I searched my fellow bloggers’ sites and picked 10 Easy DIY Ornaments – Handmade Christmas Decor.
