Hi everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this time leading up to Christmas. I know my family has been in full holiday swing. In fact, we spent several hours this weekend creating new Christmas ornaments — several for our own home and a few to give as gifts. I thought it would be fun to share our creations with you today. I hope you enjoy seeing what we made and maybe even feel inspired to do a little crafting of your own.
Each of the ornaments below was created using clear plastic ornaments, acrylic paints, and various other additions as noted.
If you’re looking for snowman face inspiration, you can try this photo and this photo.
Pro tip: Make sure to use paints specially designed for plastic and consider adding a clear coat on top to protect your artwork.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our holiday preparations. Being creative always reminds me of our Creator and how He has blessed us with the fruits of His creation. Spending the time listening to Christmas music and crafting with my children is a blessing I cherish.

You will notice two obvious gaps in this list: books and bookmarks. Yes, those are great gifts for book lovers, but they are so beyond obvious, it didn’t seem necessary to add them to the list when there were other, less obvious ideas wanting a spot there. So I left them off.
