Easy DIY ornaments

Christmas is just a couple of days away, can you believe it?
Lots of people are posting about cute little Christmas crafts so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.  Favorite because they not only look cute, but also look easy to make.  Let's be realistic here, I am not going to make any of these for this year, but I just might be able to whip up some in time for next Christmas.

These ornaments look so simple and they are no-mess (a plus in my book):


I couldn't find the original source for this photo but I imagine it involves hot gluing cinnamon sticks around candle votives. I think they are SO pretty and must smell delicious!

These modern paper ornaments are so simple.  I love the addition of the grommet to hold the strips together.  You could easily change the color scheme of your tree with these.

Just look at these darling felt ornaments.  And I love how you can spice things up by not using traditional Christmas colors - so cute.

Another no mess glitter ornament.  The trick is that the glitter is on the inside.  I love it!  Last year at the after Christmas sales, I bought the clear ornaments.  I forgot what I wanted to do with them when I found them in my Christmas stash earlier this month.  Hopefully I'll remember to make them for next Christmas.

What DIY Christmas decorations have you made?  Or if you are like me, what do you want to make?
