You can make your own homemade Christmas ornaments out of any object. You can use rocks, shells, dried flowers, beads, buttons, marbles or pretty much anything you have laying around the house. In this case, we'll be using shells collected from the local beach. Making your own ornaments is a great way to display collections or talismans from past trips and adventures and repurpose them into something new, useful and beautiful.
What you'll need
String, thread or wire and a hot glue gun.
Sort items by size and color and glue them into any shape you want.
Here's what we made
Attach the sting, wire or thread and you are ready to hang it on the tree!
We added found pinecones. Next we'll string dried cranberries and popcorn to make a garland making it a 100% repurposed, up-cycled tree with all natural decorations. All we had to buy was the string and the hot glue gun!
