Every year, we seem to have the same debate about Christmas ornaments. Do we make the tree look like it belongs in Macy’s, with expertly positioned ornaments and lights? Or do we give it some personality and make some funky ornaments that no one else will have?
Usually we end up somewhere in the middle. And no matter which side of the fence your family’s on when it comes to ornaments, you can use these simple DIY ideas to create your own Christmas ornaments.
