These are great!  miniw, I think yours are my favorites  Smiley

I just made some ornaments for the Quirky Winter Holiday swap.  They were super easy - I just made some crochet hooks out of clay and stuck them into some yarn balls I wound.  The variegated yarn makes them a lot more interesting looking than if it were a solid color, I think.

Here's some that I've made in past years:
Made from light bulbs

They cost just over $.25 to make.

I have a ton of others but they're packed away.

Ooh.... I love them all super cute.

I thought the soldier hats were afros at first too! Glad I am not the only one who thought so.
I can make almost anything out of polymer clay! :P

This is one of my favorite ornaments.  My children made them in grammar school with their art teacher.  They are made from craft foil and are easy to make.

You can get directions here http://craftelf.com/Craft_elf_holiday_Christmas_CraftFoil_Christmas_Ornament.htm

Also, I have written many other tutorials for ornaments which can be viewed here http://craftelf.com/craft_elf_holiday_Christmas%202.htm

Hope you find something you like : )

Cute cute cute!

I made these tree ornaments last year from Stephani Cognon's (?) "Soft Trees" templates.

These were for the 12 days swap. They are just wood shapes painted and glittered.

Two years ago these were on my little shelves, but last year they made it to the tree.

These are made by cutting out 6 of the same shape, folding them in 1/2 and then gluing cute rickrack to make a hanger.

I'm working on some more now, but they are for a swap, so I'll have to revisit this thread.

I"ve never posted anything before so I hope 'quote" was the right thing to click! lol

Sewinggrl, I love the trees !!!!  They are so cute and the snowmen are awesome.  How did you make them?

Do the best you can in this moment and don't worry about the rest.

Thanks to everyone who is posting on this thread - I love all of the ideas!  Keep 'em coming.

I thought owls would look cute poked into a Christmas tree so I looked around Craftster, Flickr and Etsy for some inspiration.  The two center owls were created using this pattern http://annamariahorner.blogspot.com/2006/12/its-hoot.html.

My brother-in-law collects calaveras and Mexican art and isn't big on Christmas, so I made some special ornaments to help him get in the spirit.  I got the cool curly copper hangers at Walmart.
