There’s no better way to get into the true Christmas spirit than making your own Christmas tree decorations with your family and friends.

My favorite thing to do during the holiday is to decorate the tree with ornaments. Every time I open the storage boxes with all the ornaments I have collected over the 30+ years, they always put a smile on my face. So many memories for each of them. Especially the ones my son made when he was just a little boy. Most of the glitter is gone, but they are still precious to me.

I put together this awesome list for inspiration. See if there’s anything you like here, too!
