O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree. I really love your colors. Ornaments are easily the best part of any tree. They are the life, the personality, and what makes each tree unique. I still remember the first set of ornaments we ever made. There was one that looked like a melted pile of boogers with some shapes, which was made from Elmer's glue. Then there was the set we made with my dad. He took wrapping paper, cut out shapes, and used colored glue to create designs. Then, we sprinkled the edges with confetti. They're still buried in my parents' garage somewhere, so maybe someday they'll get to go on my tree! In the meantime, I've rounded up the best colorful ornament DIY's so that your tree can be as vibrant and fun as you are! We know there are so many cool ornaments you can buy, but over in these parts, we like things you can make!
