Add a custom look to your Christmas tree this year by making your own beautiful ornaments. Or make a few to give as gifts! So easy and a beautiful way to add a bit of your personality to your tree! Let’s make some Christmas ornaments today!

Today on Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about HOW TO THROW THE BEST POTLUCK DINNER! Yes, there really is a method to making it both easy and delicious. And I think we have changed Kelly’s mind from being anti potluck to maybe throwing a potluck party herself!

You can listen to episode 125 below:


And listen to any DTT you missed HERE.

Now let’s make an ornament or two…


Just imagine a few of these big ornaments on your tree. They certainly do have that big WOW factor!!! I’m making several for my tree this year. Why don’t you join me?


Keeping with the pinecone theme, making these sweet little pinecone stars could not be easier! I think they give a tree a little bit of a natural look… that has a bit of twinkle!



These beautiful and delicate looking snowflake ornaments were made from regular old clothespins! So easy and just so pretty! I added a fine dusting of crystal glitter to make them sparkle! They are just the thing to stand out and make your tree look spectacular!


These pretty ornaments glow and sparkle when the lights of your tree are on! I actually put a tree light inside each frosted lantern. And they are so so easy to make. I love putting paper lanterns of all sizes in my tree! 


Now you have a great way to use those broken ornaments we have every year. Make new ornaments from them. Broken glass ornaments are so beautiful on a tree. Such a beautiful and different kind of ornament.

Are you ready to make some new ornaments for your tree this year?

    I love all of these great ideas, but especially the clothespin star. I always like a little bling or shabby, so I think I will get some of the larger press-on pearl halves to go in the center. Definitely cream pearl, but I guess most any color pearl would look great! Thank you for such great ideas! Am so glad I joined this group. Have a blessed day!

  6. Love all the ornaments and thank you for the directions too! You are such an inspiration!

  9. Thank you for this post Yvonne. So many beautiful decorations to choose from. I saw the beautiful paper lanterns on your tree last year, but didn’t want to be a copy-cat, but they are so pretty I just can’t resist. I do the Grand Illumination on my front porch each summer and have ordered the lanterns from a different company, but the one you suggest has better prices, so thanks for that info also. I have just ordered some and can’t wait to get started..Happy Wednesday..Judy
