Note from the Editor

Hello Holiday Crafters,

When I was growing up, trimming the tree was a special occasion in my home. My mom would turn up the Christmas music loud enough to fill the whole house, and we would set hot chocolate boiling while she hauled out boxes of Christmas ornaments. My favorite part was hearing the stories behind each ornament; nearly all of my mother’s Christmas ornaments were handmade by friends or family members. The love and care that went into making each ornament made our Christmas tree that much more personal and special.

This year, AllFreeHolidayCrafts invites you to add a handmade touch to your Christmas tree with nine adorable DIY ornament tutorials. All of these ornaments are easy enough that you can make a whole bunch of them at once. Give them away individually as gifts, or use a whole batch of the same ornament to give your Christmas tree a cohesive feel.

Whether your style is country or modern, elegant or cutesy, you’re sure to find a homemade ornament you’ll fall in love with in this collection.

Happy Crafting,

Jessica, Editor of AllFreeHolidayCrafts
