    Erin, this is a great roundup of ornaments! I love so many of them, the bookpage ornaments, the yarn wrapped Christmas trees, and chalkboard signs are the coolest! So many on this list that I want to make, pinning to come back to again and again. How fun!

    Wow– these are all great! I think my favorite are the sticks/branches tied with leftover ribbon (ha! something I never seem to have!). I also love the ornaments wrapped in print. I bet the ribbon wrapped branch could also work if you make a ribbon wrapped star.

      Aren’t they darling! I agree, Leanna, the little chalkboard signs could be used for several things over the course of the year, not just Christmas. Thanks for coming by!

    Hi Erin, I’m definitely not a crafts type person in being able to make things. So total kudos to you for all the amazing this things you are able to come up with! 🙂 I’m trying to find an owl tree ornament to give as a little gift for…umm…someone 😉 Shhhh…it’s a secret!

      How fun, Christmas shopping for someone special! Yeah, you. I hope you found what you’re looking for 🙂 Crafts are very therapeutic for me. Wish I had more time to do them though!
