Do you put handmade ornaments on your Christmas tree?
I do! I love the eclectic look that handmade ornaments give to a Christmas tree. In addition to adding variety to a tree, it’s a great way to incorporate different colors and textures into your Christmas tree.
Since then, each year, I’ve tried to add one handmade ornament to my Christmas tree. I love Christmas crafts and look forward to making ornaments to give as gifts or decor.
I’m always inspired by my fellow bloggers’ and designers’ creations. There are so many talented Makers online.
