Hand-crafted Christmas ornaments are the best. And if you’re looking to give something handmade and personal to friends and family this year, why not whip up a cute ornament that they can hang on their tree or mantle? Then every time they look at it they can think of you! We love the idea of adding initials or a family name to really make your creations unique, if you opt for something small and flat, you could even pop it inside a Christmas card.
