  • DIY Thumbtack Ornament 1 of 6

    This is why I love office sup­ply stores: you just never know what you can make with a hum­ble item like a thumb­tack. What an easy project, with such shiny results.

    So many vari­a­tions are pos­si­ble with these striped paper ornaments — monochromatic, an ombré fade, rain­bow hues for the kids, pat­tern mixes. That's what makes them personal!

    With so many jingly jan­gly crazy ornaments on our tree, sim­ple black and white designs like these would stand out in the best way. This is a great project to share with the kid­dos too.

    Wow, this is a pretty stun­ning use of a hon­ey­comb tech­nique. And again, color and paper selec­tion can make it unique to you and your décor.

    As long as you can find the time to cut a ton of lit­tle felt cir­cles, this project is a breeze. I think I'd do this repet­i­tive project while watch­ing White Christ­mas.

    Ok, this is one of those "Duh" moments. If you love pom-poms, what bet­ter place to add them than on a Christ­mas tree? I think we'll need to make several.
