DIY Christmas Crafts: 18 Homemade Holiday Ornament Ideas

There are so many beautiful ornaments for sale out there, but the ones I love best are the ones we've made ourselves, from my kids' cobbled together crafts to my own hot glue gun creations. I love them because they're inexpensive, because they're unique, and because they have a story to tell. And just because they're handmade doesn't mean they can't be just as lovely as the store-bought kind. Here are eighteen of my favorite DIY handmade holiday ornaments that prove just that:
