I love Christmas. It is the Holiday where I enjoy going to great lengths with decorations. My favourite Christmas Tree Ornaments are ones that I have made myself over many years, combined with gifts from my friends. Decorating my tree is always a very special trip down memory lane. I have been something of a Nomad, all my life so that my ornaments become a memory of people and places that are no longer in my Life.
It will be an eclectic mishmash because that is what I've always done, anything and everything that I happened to find of interest at the moment.
My mother used to hang all the Christmas Cards that she received on string in loops around the living room. I recognized very early that I would never send or receive as many cards as she did. It was a little disappointing until I had the idea of collecting my cards over a few years and hanging them all. It has turned into a wonderful way to remember friends.
I do have to warn people ahead of time that I have hung my Christmas Card Collection or they are somewhat shocked when they first visit me and see it.
Many of the Christmas Tree Ornaments below are made with one set of materials, but would work just as well with a different one. For example the Easy Fun Foam Ormanents would work just as well with felt. My real goal is to stimulate your creative juices, although I have included detailed instructions as well and even with them changing up the colours and shapes is great.
Have Suggestions orany improvements? I would love to hear from you.
