Friday, December 11, 2020
Whether you're scrambling for the perfect gift with meaning, just moved in to a new home or have some downtime for crafting during the holiday break, consider making one of these sentimental ornaments for someone you care about.
1. Small embellishments, big impact
It doesn't take much to make this ornament. With just a piece of cardstock and a couple of embellishments, Diane of In My Own Style created an ornament that will be special for years to come.
2. Tree with meaning
Here's a unique twist to that idea from Meredith of Unoriginal Mom. We love how her Christmas tree tells a story with each sentimental ornament she's made.
3. Classic salt dough ornament
Salt dough ornaments like this one from The Gilbertson Family are quick and easy to make and the creativity options are endless! This is the perfect project you and your kids to accomplish on a Saturday afternoon.
4. Mold some memories
For an even simpler take, try molding your key into your favorite color of clay. Check out this easy tutorial from That’s What We Did.
5. Stamped with style
Here's another variation of the clay-molded key from Amy of One Artsy Mama. We're loving her choice of ribbon and metal stamped banner.
6. Unique snowflake
Maybe you're one of the many families that has moved a LOT through the years. Take some inspiration from This Old House and use this skeleton key DIY to create your own memorable key snowflake ornament.
7. Heartwarming touch
Pleasure in Simple Things shows how to make your key ornament even easier by simply attaching it to something you might already own, like this IKEA heart. You don't have to be super crafty to make an ordinary key adorable.
8. Model home
If you enjoy intricate details, try painting a replica of your home on the key like This Idyllic Life. Model makers will appreciate the challenge and effort.
9. Do you want to build a snowman?
It doesn't get much cuter than Crafts by Amanda’s snowman keys! If you have kids, let each personalize their own for an even more special touch.
10. Key for Santa
Growing up, yours truly didn’t have a chimney. When we asked how Santa got in to deliver presents, my parents said they left him a key for the front door. That seemed reasonable enough to keep believing, so if that sounds like your curious youngsters, make Santa his own magic key like Salvage Sister & Mister.
