Christmas tree ornaments start lining the shelves of stores long before we even celebrate Halloween. The choices are infinite: glass balls, wooden snowflakes, even singing characters. This year, save your money and get creative–make your own ornaments!

We have four ornament crafts to get you started. Each ornament is made from items that you probably have sitting around your house. Click the photos or images below to watch the tutorials and learn to make a three-tiered paper tree, a tinfoil ball, a German bell, and a wreath!
