DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments


One of the Christmas traditions in my house is to make ornaments for a group of women who have been my friends for nearly 20 years now.  We met when Gooseberry Patch had a online chat group and have been friends ever since.  We have hosted an ornament exchange for eight years and the sign up for the ninth one has begun!

All of these adorable ornaments would be worthy candidates for the exchange. I did choose one that I will show you later, but for now it is a secret!  Part of the fun is the surprise of opening the box and seeing what ornaments everyone made, so I won't be the one to ruin the fun!

  4. Aw this is such a cool idea, I am def gonna have to apply this with some friends this holiday season. I think it would be cool to get together and bake cookies chill by the fire place while making ornaments and then exchange them.
