Simple & Easy DIY Sequined Christmas Ornament Craft for Kids & Adults

How to make DIY sequin and pin styrofoam ball Christmas tree ornaments for kids and adults - These simple & easy handmade ornaments make a pretty addition to any homemade Xmas tree. Awesome, fun craft for children, tweens, and teens. Picture shows stripes, but ideas for other decorations and patterns with loose sequins and lots of bling.

We have on different occasions made lots of different projects with loose sequins, the most memorable being this sequined snowflake Grace and I made when she was 3 1/2. It was not especially pleasing to the eye, but she was proud of it, and we hung it on the Christmas tree until she peeled all the sequins off. Now that Grace is 11, we make more grown up ornaments that are more pleasing to the eye. This is one that I would be happy to hang, and not just because my child made it but because it actually looks nice. … Read more

I love Christmas crafts. Actually, I love all crafts and pretty much everything Christmas, but Christmas crafts have a special place in my heart.

Baby Jesus Ornament Craft

We were browsing on Oriental Trading for craft projects for our church to do, and Allie saw these little baby Jesus ornaments. I want to make that, Mom! she said. I asked why. I sort of thought it was ugly. Because it’s baby Jesus! We could hang him on our Christmas tree and see him for the whole season! It’s hard to argue with seeing baby Jesus all season. I suppose I could’ve said no, but I had other crafts planned for December, and I knew these would fit right in. Materials I love craft kits from Oriental Trading. We buy … Read more

Button-Covered Christmas Ornament to Make with a Preschooler

button covered Christmas ornament

I love this ornament. Like the jingly pom pom ball (that is my first favorite), this one came out really nicely. They were really similar ornaments, starting with a styrofoam ball and a lot of glue. We also worked on this one in short stages, and Grace was really involved. That probably contributes to how much I enjoyed it. Button Ornaments Materials Lots of buttons – We have a fabric outlet in the Harrisburg area that sells buttons by the pound. Over the years, I’ve amassed a several pound collection that I store in a big jar in our craft … Read more

Another Pom Pom Ornament to Make with a Preschooler

Another day, another crafty ornament with Grace. This one was impromptu. Joe totally made it up while surrounded by mounds of pom poms that were left over from another ornament, so it’s not on the Ornaments to Make With a Preschooler list. Pom Pom Stuffed Christmas Ornaments Materials Small glass ball ornaments (we used 4-inch size) Pom poms A pencil or chopstick (or other thin but not sharp tool) Glitter (optional) Instructions Carefully remove the top from a glass ball ornament.
