These handmade personalized ornaments are perfect for 2017 to make its mark on your tree.

I purchased a few Christmas craft supplies from Amazon and JoAnn Fabric store and ended up with numerous different DIY Christmas ornaments. My kid’s creativity never ceases to amaze me. They loved to create their own ornaments with drawings, their names/initials, handprints, etc. Then they had the excitement of hanging them on the tree afterwards.

It’s a great craft for those days off of school or weekend mornings. Create precious keepsakes with these easy-to-make ornaments.
