Every year it is a tradition in my family for everyone to make an ornament to put up onto the tree. Over the years I have accumulated a few types of ornaments you can make for your tree this year! Grab your pens, paper and glitter and have a go a making your own Christmas Tree ornaments!



1. A Snowflake!


This is the easiest one – so a must-do for everyone! Grab a piece of paper and fold it over twice to create a small square. Now cut small shapes out of the square, these can be as random as you want! Unfold the paper to reveal a beautiful paper snowflake. Grab a piece of string and tape it onto the snowflake in a loop shape to create a wonderful Christmas tree decoration.

2. Decorating an old decoration


Got a decoration that has been lying around and hasn’t been on the tree for the last couple of years. Why not give it a new lease of life by redecorating it. Grab some paint, permanent markers or even some glue and glitter to get started. You can do this to a few old decorations to make them match, giving your tree a beautifully coordinated theme!
