Homemade Christmas Ornament Roundup

Good morning! Can you believe it is almost the middle of November already? That seems so crazy! Now is the time to create some new ornaments for your Christmas Tree. Have you ever hosted an ornament party or attended one? I think that would be a lot of fun.

I went back through the blog to look at what ornaments I have made throughout the years. I was surprised at how many there were! There are lots of different ideas and skill levels to choose from. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Paper Pinecone Ornament-This was one of my first ornaments I made for the blog. I still hang this one on my tree and love how it turned out. It does take a bit more time, but it was so worth it.

Faux Deer Ornament-This ornament was made for a fellow blogger and was the first Ornament Exchange I participated in. It was always fun to create a special gift for someone else.

Glittering Silver Sequin Ornament– This was one of my first ornaments, hence, the blurry pictures. This one takes a bit more time, but it’s not difficult. It’s very pretty on the tree!

From Sea Urchin to Jellyfish Ornament– Here is another one from the Ornament Exchange. I made this one for a fellow coastal lover!

Wooden Buoy Ornament– More coastal! This one I made for my own tree and love how they turned out!

Wire Star Ornament– Lauren and I made this one together and would be a great one to make with your kids.

Seashell and Driftwood Ornament– Here is another ornament for the Ornament Exchange. It was so fun to make one and to receive one!

Minnie Mouse Wooden Bead Ornament-Here is a fun one for all the Disney lovers!

Nautical Inspired Seashell Ornament– This is the last one I made for the Ornament Exchange. I always make an extra for myself too. ūüôā

Christmas Cat Ornament– Lauren made this one last year. Perfect for the kids and for cat lovers!

Gold, White and Fall Leaves Tablescape

 

Good morning everyone! Is your weather cool now or maybe cold? Brrr! We have had some beautiful days and even some much needed rain! It’s been so nice. One of the downfalls in our area, is that we don’t really have a very long fall. Our trees are just starting to change color now and then suddenly it will be cold. That’s it…all done. I just try to enjoy these days while they are here.

Even though the outside trees aren’t in full color yet, I can bring some of it inside to enjoy. I decided to put a tablescape together for a soup party since the weather has been cooler. My only issue was that many of my dishes were already packed away for the move. So here I was, digging through boxes I just had packed looking for various pieces! Thankfully, I had labeled the boxes fairly well and was able to find things without to much digging.

I love the Autumn Leaves String Light! This is perfect for transitioning into Christmas lights. It looks so pretty along the center of the table. I used another one along the back of the buffet too.

I used lots of gold and white and then added in several natural elements, such as the leaves, Burlap Mini Drawstring Bags and burlap ribbon and a Pinecone Votive holder.

I love these Gold Birch Napkins! They are nice and thick, but soft too, so they aren’t rough on your fingers.

I used Premium White Dessert Plates with Gold Edging and Premium Gold Trim White Bowls to serve Taco Soup and chips. Delicious on a cool night!

I love these Burlap Mini Drawstring Bags! I added a few caramels inside for sweet treat dessert.

I think this Pinecone Votive Holder adds just the right touch to a fall table. Actually, it could be used at Christmas time too, along with the gold and white theme. Perfect transition!

Well, I have to pack everything up now :(. I won’t be posting much for Christmas Decorating either, which is very sad for me. I will see how it goes at the new house and give you a few sneak peaks when I can! ¬†Thanks for visiting today and have a great week!
