All our homemade ornaments are cute, and some gimpier than others, but none are beautiful in the sophisticated sense of the word.

We ordered some crocheted snowflakes on etsy that are beautiful, though. So some people can make beautiful ornaments- just not me.

I have some gorgeous lace snow flake ornaments that are just pieces of lace threaded onto a plastic ring. Unfortunately we put all the unused ornaments back in the attic last night or I'd take a pic. They are some of my favorite ornaments which is why we didn't use them this year. I'd cry if they got messed up.

I have this exact one.

Here's the instructions for making them. I have all of the ones in the first little picture. However, if you click to enlarge, they're different. I also have this exact one.

I probably have about 6-8 different designs. Years ago AC Moore sold either a kit with a length of lace & 3 rings or the lace & rings separate to make them. I stocked up. To do them today you'd need to experiment with different lace trimmings to see what would look nice in a ring.

Define beautiful...

Kusudama flowers are pretty and very simple to make. They can be made out of fabric too. I made them for my bouquet but the paper ones take less effort.


There is a kind with a surprise ball, some small fabric squares and pushpins that are easy and pretty.

You can make very simple felt ornaments with blanket stitching and a little stuffing.

I think we are going to make some Finnish stars.

This is one of the corsages from my weddings. I'll see if I can find a link with instructions. I think they would make pretty ornaments.

Instructions. You can form them into balls too.
