Roundup: 18 DIY Christmas Ornaments to Make This Season

18 DIY Ornaments Roundup

Growing up, we had a tradition in my family where every member of the family received a new ornament on Christmas Eve, usually based on something eventful from the past year.  When I moved out and got married, I had 19 years worth (yes, I married young!) of ornaments.  My husband's family had the same tradition, so our sad Charlie Brown-esque tree was quickly full and made us feel right at home for our first Christmas together.

We have since continued the tradition with our kids and each other- but last year my husband forgot to get me an ornament until late Christmas Eve.  He locked himself in my craft room and emerged an hour later with a very interesting handmade ornament for me.  It was wonky, and it was obviously made by someone who has never wielded embroidery floss, but I loved it.  It got us thinking that it would be fun to put a spin on tradition and make each other ornaments every year.   Here are some ornament ideas I knew I would like to receive (please pass the word along to my husband), and you probably would too:
