55 Christmas Ornaments You’ll Love

We created a list with the top Christmas ornament ideas for 2021, so check it out!

DIY Christmas Ornaments

Let’s see some really cool Christmas ornaments you can make yourself as a project this year! 

1. Painted Glass Christmas Ornaments 

Painted glass christmas ornaments 

If you want to create a beautiful Christmas ornament that will look lovely on the tree, painting glass orbs is one of the best ways to go. It’s a good idea to personalize your landscape and create your style instead of following the usual trends.

When it comes to materials, you need a glass ball, acrylic paint in the colors of your choice, and a paintbrush! If you want to hang several balls from a string, you can do that too!

The hardest part is painting the glass ball itself. We recommend starting with a white background and adding a second layer of color, but you can experiment in any way you want! Children might love to paint their own Christmas ornaments with a little help from a grown-up.

If you want to learn about painting glass Christmas ornaments, go to our detailed tutorial. It has everything you need to know about making them as part of your holiday décor.

2. Footprint – Baby’s First Christmas Ornament 

Footprint baby's first christmas ornament 

If you’re expecting a little one this year, this project is the perfect way to mark their first Christmas: imprinting your baby’s footprints on a Christmas ornament to hang on the tree. It’s a great keepsake that you can cherish for years to come, and it’s special because it involves your entire family.

This is a wonderful project to do with the little ones in your family because it’s simple and fun! To make your baby’s first Christmas ornament, you need only three items: tacky glue, glitter, and a standard Christmas bulb ornament.

Once you’ve assembled the materials, it’s time to get started. Place your baby’s foot on a piece of paper and draw its outline. Then, cut it out of the paper and trace it to the bulb ornament.

Now, all that’s left is filling the outline with tacky glue and covering it with glitter. Make sure to remove any excess glitter, and then wait for a day until it dries off. It might be a good idea to add a hanging tag so that it doesn’t get mixed with other ornaments in the future!

We discovered this wonderful idea at Not Quite Susie, so be sure to check it out!

3. Paper Roses – Custom Christmas Ornaments 

Paper roses custom christmas ornaments 

For custom Christmas ornaments, try crafting beautiful paper roses with a string! It’s a great way to get the kids busy during the holidays, so you can print this idea for them to follow when making these items!

There’s nothing complicated about this do-it-yourself project, which means that everyone in your family can enjoy creating these lovely ornaments. In fact, you can hold a friendly competition to see who designs the most beautiful roses.

As far as materials are concerned, you need colored paper, a pencil, a glue stick, a pair of scissors, a ruler, and twine or string. Start by measuring the size of the finished rose and use a ruler to draw its shape on a sheet of paper. Then, cut around the shape.

Make a middle piece for the rose out of contrasting paper, which you have to glue on top of the first layer. For long petals, cut one more sheet of paper and glue it on top of the previous layers.

Flatten each petal with your hand so that they stand straight up once dry. Then you have to punch a hole in the middle of the flower to add a string or twine for hanging it on your Christmas tree.

4. Nightmare Before Christmas Ornaments 

Nightmare before christmas ornaments

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a beloved animated motion picture that tells a story of a world called Christmas Town, where characters and creatures from children’s stories exist. It’s no wonder that a lot of kids want to see Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments on their trees.

So, if you’re looking for a simple idea to make their wishes come true, try your hand at painting characters from Nightmare Before Christmas on wooden slices.

You first have to draw the characters on the slices and then paint them with acrylic paint. Avoid purchasing acrylic paint that is metallic. It’s also a good idea to color the adhesive cord used for hanging the ornaments by painting it green.

Just think about how much fun your kids will have making these mini decorations! No doubt that they’ll be thrilled if you pick up a few extra bags of wooden slices so each of them can craft their own Jack.

5. Marble Paint Glass Christmas Ornaments 

Marble paint glass christmas ornaments 

If you’re interested in an interesting glass Christmas ornament idea that you can make on your home at home, check out this stunning project that involves marble paint. It’s artsy but doesn’t require any special painting skills, so you will be able to create fabulous decorations to hang on your Christmas tree and have your guests admire.

Marble paint pour crafts are all the rage right now, and there’s no reason not to get in on the fun! Besides, these DIY Christmas ornaments offer a good chance for your kids to get creative and experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures.

When it comes to materials, you need Testors Craft Acrylic Paints, Testors Craft Marbling Medium, clear glass or plastic ornament balls, a newspaper or poster board, plastic kitchen wrap, a styrofoam block, wood kitchen skewers, wood dowels, and small dixie cups.

Be sure to protect your workspace with the newspaper or poster board. Then you can start by wrapping the styrofoam block with kitchen plastic wrap. Insert one end of the wood dowels in the ornament balls and the other end in the styrofoam block so that the balls sit up straight without touching each other.

In the following step, you can prepare the painting mixture after pouring equal parts of the medium and paint in a dixie cup. Keep in mind that you need a dixie cup for each mixture of one painting color. Afterward, you can combine everything to get the final look of your marble paint.

Now you just have to pour the paint over the ornament balls until they are completely covered. Let the paint dry, remove the wood skewers, reattach the hanging clips of the ornaments, and hang them on your Christmas tree.

Handprint baby's first christmas ornament 

Another excellent DIY Christmas ornament idea is to create a special decoration for your baby’s first Christmas using their handprint. It doesn’t require much effort but will leave an everlasting impression no matter how old your toddler gets!

If you want to try out this option for the baby’s first Christmas ornament, gather the following supplies: a wood slice, white acrylic paint, black chalkboard paint, a white Sharpie paint pen, a pencil, paintbrushes, and a small hook.

Start by drawing a circle on the wood slice while making sure to leave a bit of room on the edges. Next, you can paint the circle with black chalkboard paint and let it dry off completely. Next, cover your baby’s palm in white paint and press it against the wooden slice. Of course, it doesn’t have to be perfect.

Once it dries off, you can write the baby’s name and current date below the handprint using the paint marker. Or, you can write anything else. As you can see, the steps are pretty elementary, so don’t be afraid to experiment with this stunning DIY Christmas ornament idea!

7. Gold Leaf Christmas Tree Ornaments 

Gold leaf christmas tree ornaments 

You can adorn your Christmas tree with the most exquisite decorations you can think of, even if it means taking some time off to create these one-of-a-kind ornaments. We recommend making each Christmas tree ornament by hand.

But if you don’t have enough time for this endeavor, you can enlist the help of family and friends. Check out this stunning gold leaf Christmas tree ornament!

To prepare a bunch of these, you will need Speedball Mona Lisa Gold Leaf Kit, clear glass ornaments, acrylic craft paints, assorted paintbrushes and foam brushes, gold ribbons, and plastic cups.

Start by mixing the paints in a plastic cup, and don’t be afraid to mix different colors to obtain something new and exciting. Then, remove the metal cap from the ornament and carefully pour the paint through the small hole. Next, shake the ornament until the paint covers it entirely on the inside.

Eliminate the excess paint and wait for the paint inside to dry off. During this time, you can prepare the metal caps by adding a coat of adhesive. Also, apply the adhesive to the outer layer of the glass ornaments.

Set the items aside until the adhesive feels tacky, and then you can apply the gold leaf kit over the ornament. Finally, you can add a gold ribbon to each ornament so that you can hang it on your Christmas tree. The results are gorgeous!
