Plastic Scoop Ornaments

Save the plastic scoops from laundry containers, or koolaid drink mixes. Create a scene inside the scoop using craft supplies. Spray paint the outside, and drill a hole with the center of the handle, and insert a ribbon to hang it on your tree.

Christmas Card Ornaments

Cut circles out of old christmas cards towards the size of plastic container lids. Glue the cutouts towards the lids. Decorate with glue and sparkles, then cut an opening and hang with a colorful ribbon.

Cut circles of christmas card scenes exactly the same size by using a plastic lid. Loop a piece of yarn or ribbon and glue to one of the circles. Glue another circle on the back. When it's hanging on the tree, you will see a design on both sides.

Egg Carton Christmas Bells

Make Christmas bells by cutting an egg carton up. Cover each bell shape with aluminum foil. Use yarn threaded on the large needle, insert with the bottom of the bell, then insert it back thru the very best and cut and tie them back. The knot will be inside now.

This paper ornament’s unique design will definitely stand out on your tree, particularly if you’re a fan of colorful paper. A house made ornament with this style might have everyone’s attention.

Christmas Tree Streamers

Make colorful beads from cut macaroni (like ziti) and dunking them into assorted food colors. Drain and dry completely. Pour the beads into individual cups, and allow the children string them on yarn. Place the strings on the tree.
