Having a personal touch on your Christmas tree is key, so I wanted to summarize a few DIY ornament options that I decided to participate in this year!
Tomorrow, I’m taking a three hour Dabble class on glass blowing. During it, I’ll get to work with a glass artisan to make my own glass ball ornament to hang on our tree this year! If Dabble isn’t in your community, search for your local glass collaborative.
Also, For the Makers (a high end craft subscription) and Gilt City have partnered, allowing you to order two different DIY ornament kits this winter. I chose to get the black and white clay ornament kit, and they also have a DIY geometric ornaments kit.
I’m really excited to get to work on my Gilt City kit (which are only available until Thursday, November 21st).
