Christmas days are here again and the fervor of the festival is fast catching up. Everybody Christians or Non-Christians are indulging themselves in decorating their homes for the upcoming festival and New Year. But while doing so you surely wouldn’t like to have a hole in the pocket. So why not do-it-yourself!

Here are seven great & easy ideas of making Christmas ornaments:

  1. Hanging Angel: f584e554e74a3f5658875515fa49a0ad A simple craft with some paper cutting, some pasting & a dash of glitter that too from a paper napkin. You can use it to decorate the Christmas tree or hang near the window or door window handles to beautify these commonly used but neglected corners of house.
  1. Origami Star:  origami starYou will require a five regular origami sheets of paper (the same ones which we used in craft class at school), some glue & a crystal to decorate .The process is readily available with video demo on youtube.com which can be followed and create a beautiful star. A version of this can be made from translucent hand made paper in which a light bulb can be inserted and hanged in different corners of house.

3. Christmas Tree Ornament: Christmas tree ornamentAnother creative way of using paper napkin. Cut the paper in thin strips and then tie from middle to form elegant ornament to be put on Xmas Tree.

  1. Home made Wreath: wreathTake a iron cloth hanger twist it to form a round. Now wrap a green decorative frill thread around it. Now stick small red balls randomly. Twist in thin satin ribbon, put a bow made out of broad satin ribbon at the top or bottom of it to complete a beautiful wreath.

  2. Origami Christmas Tree: origami xmas treeYou will require a regular origami sheets of paper & some glitter.The process can be followed through video demo on youtube. these trees can be made of multi-color and kept near the nativity crib or can be tied together to form a bunch and hanged with some chimes to create a Xmas special wind chime.

If you can do that then making these beauties yourself is possible. These stick-ons’ can be used to decorate walls, cupboards, dining table center piece. My way of using it is on my nativity crib barn.

  4. Santa‘s Stick: santa's stickHave you got aluminium foil in your kitchen? If yes then all you need is a medium size aluminium foil & some thin red satin ribbon. Twist the foil into the stick shape and then wrap around. Neat the edges and you are done.
