Simple Handmade Christmas Ornaments

It has been raining here in Southern California.  This is so unusual, we are all terrified to go outside.  We cranked up the Christmas music and donned our fuzzy slippers for a day indoors.   Since we’re on school break, we decided to break out the glitter and glue guns for some simple homemade Christmas ornament fun.

Simple Homemade Christmas Ornaments

First, a confession.  I am craft-challenged.  However, with some basic supplies, most of which we already had, we were able to put together some nice Christmas ornaments for our tree and have some fun at the same time.  Hope you enjoy our picks for easy, homemade Christmas ornaments!
