Monday Motivation { handmade ornaments}

Welcome back to Monday Motivation!

The Christmas tree is up in our family room.  It is not decorated yet but it will be as soon as I get the lights tested and up.  My favorite part of decorating the tree is all of the memories attached to the ornaments from years past.  There are quite a number of them since we have had trees for almost 29 years together!

There are so many fun handmade Christmas ornaments that can be made to put on your tree or to give as gifts!  Some of the great ideas can also be used to organize a swap or make them as a group! Add to your family tree  memories by making some of these wonderful ornaments!








Wild Olive always has the best ideas and this one is no exception!  I am so in love with this sweet llama!  You can make one or a whole herd by visiting HERE for the pattern!



Log Cabin blocks are my favorite! Sherri from A Quilting Life used them for her tutorial on how to make them into a sweet ornament!



These gingerbread gentlemen and ladies are really adorable!  Add a cinnamon stick or some cloves inside to make them smell lovely too!  You can find the tutorial for these cuties by visiting  How To Do It!
