We found a set of DIY unfinished wood ornaments at Oriental Trading and totally loved them. They came in a variety of handy holiday shapes - Santa Claus, Gingerbread Man, Christmas Tree, Star, and Candy Cane.

All you need to make these fantastic ornaments is paint, pom-poms, googly eyes and some basic embellishments of your choice.


This is an easy Christmas activity for preschoolers and toddlers. With some basic craft supplies, kids can decorate the ornaments and take home their lovely handmade Christmas decorations.

Gingerbread man is my daughter's favorite. Isn't he the cutest?


These are perfect if you're hosting an ornament making party for kids. Kids can create their own Christmas ornaments and personalize them as they want. They also make fabulous gifts for loved ones.
