12 Beautiful DIY Christmas Ornament Ideas

I love homemade Christmas ornaments on my tree.  Here is a list of 12 DIY ornament ideas for you to make this season.  I save the ornaments my kids have made over the years so they have a starter set for their own tree someday.  Thanks to Pastels and Macarons for the great ideas.  I want to start out with this clay ornament:

Just in time for the holidays!  Kelli Murray shows us how to make your own ornaments and gift tags using oven bake clay!

Supplies: Sculpey oven bake clay, rolling pin, bakers twine, paint (I only used black), cookies cutters, paint pen and paint brushes.  (Not pictured: a straw)

Begin by rolling out your clay into a thin, even sheet (about 5/8″ thick).  Using your cookie cutters, cut out shapes in different sizes.  I decided to just use circles but you can use any cookie cutter shape you have in your cupboard!
