Add Your Own Style to the Holiday Season by Making Unique Christmas Ornaments
The Christmas season is a very exciting time for many different reasons, but on of the reasons why you love it so much is that you get to decorate your home in a festive way. You get all of the lights for the front of the house, you decorate the fireplace mantel, and of course you decorate the Christmas tree. However, why not make your Christmas tree a little bit different this year by making your own unique Christmas ornaments.
Unique Christmas Ornaments: The Possibilities Are Endless!
First of all, think about the overall theme that you want your Christmas tree to have. For example, say that you are a dog lover and want the Christmas tree to have a theme that is dedicated to your pets. Then, why not make unique Christmas ornaments in the shape of your pets paws?
In order to make these unique Christmas ornaments, you will need a special kind of putty or crafting clay that either dries naturally, or will need to be dried with oven heat. Next, take your pets and gently have them make a paw print into the putty mold. When the mold is dry (make sure that you had poked a hole in the top for the ribbon or pipe cleaner that you will use to attached it to the Christmas tree) paint it and perhaps add some glitter, and the result is a unique, memorable unique Christmas ornament!
Think about what the Christmas tree means to your family. It is a central part of your living room during the holiday season, and since Christmas is all about spending quality time with loved ones, why not make the loved ones into part of the Christmas tree by having the family make their own unique Christmas ornaments!
For example, if you have children, each year have them make a handprint and have them decorate it. As the years go on, you can marvel at how the children have grown. When it comes to other members of the family, have a craft night and let them pick out their own craft materials and each make a unique Christmas ornament. The result is a tree that was personally decorated by the entire family!
For more information on unique Christmas ornaments, go to your local bookstore and consult the various holiday craft books that are sure to be available. You can also search the internet, since there are many different websites that can give you Christmas decoration ideas. Whether you consider yourself creative or not, it is as simple as doing some research!
