A worthwhile family Christmas tradition is to make a few handmade ornaments for the tree each year. More than just unique decorations, they serve as mini time capsules and visual reminders that can jog your memory back to the year when each ornament was made. Here is a simple one that looks fantastic and is easy enough for the whole family to tackle.
The Crafty Crow had a wonderful series last year on DIY ornaments and this Jingle Bell Flower is our favorite one. It transforms an oh-so-humble but ever-so-useful egg carton into a beautiful little flower with a great little jingle surprise waiting inside.
While they do make perfect little ornaments we are especially taken with the idea of stringing together a bunch to form a jingly and jolly garland.
The entire tutorial, and many more like it, can be found at the Crafty Crow.
