  1. Diane says:

    We made them with the kids (now 40-43) and still have them and we are adding those made with the Grandkids.

  2. JoAnne says:

    I make some but my favorites are ones made by my kids and grandkids.

  3. Maggie says:

    I have made the lace ornaments. They are so pretty!

  4. MC says:

    Sometimes we do sometimes we don’t. We always make lots of handmade “stuff” at Christmas, but sometimes it is gifts which are Christmas ornaments.

  5. Alexandra Tudor says:

    I made a lot of ornaments in the past years. Of fabric, of fimo, of paper, of pine cones…. I’d like to try to make some of zippers too! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Christine says:

    I don’t always but will this week for our annual ornament exchange at church. I’m making a snowman out of a gourd. I love all the creativity everyone ELSE does- so it’s time I get my hands in the paint and glitter and do my own thing! I’ll feel so much better after! My mom made many -now it’s my turn! And I still get much inspiration from her, who is now in heaven. Miss you mom!!

  7. Angela Cianfaglione says:

    I make many, but I give more away as holiday gifts.

  8. Wendy Graves says:

    I have both made my own ornaments, and bought ornaments. The first year I was married, we had very little money so I cut out a star from a cereal box, wrapped it in tin foil and put it at the top of the tree we borrowed, then scrunched up pieces of tin foil and hung them from thread from the branches. Best memories ever!

  9. Debbie E. says:

    Not compared to my dear grandmother. I have kept every single one she hand made for me. I add a ribbon or glitter to something, very quickly. I should at least try to make one special one for each Christmas–that would be a nice tradition.

  10. Judy Frain says:

    I have made snowflake ornaments out of a lacy fabric and have also made fancy bows of different sizes to decorate the tree.

  11. Verna says:

    Yes, mostly for others and every year one for grandchildren!

  12. Anne Hagsten says:

    Merry Christmas everyone. Yes I make my own Christmas ornaments. This year I made quilled Christmas angels, and knit cable ornaments. I use up all my scraps that I just can’t throw away. Yarn, felt, fabric, buttons, paper and more. I start early usually in the middle of the summer. On those days when it is to hot to work in the garden I sit inside in the cool basement humming Christmas carols to the cat… He likes to help.

  13. Gail Wilson says:

    I always make an ornament for our quilt quild exchange. I hate to get store bought and won’t give one myself.

  14. Pat Herren says:

    I make a lot of my own ornaments and Christmas decorations. One year I made all of the ornaments for my friend’s 7 foot tree. They were all stuffed, embroidered, beaded, & sequined. She has used those same ornaments for almost 30 years. I started a tradition with my first grandchild of giving them an ornament every year. Now there are 8 grandchildren and they always look forward to getting their new ornament.

  15. Susan Novak says:

    I make Christmas ornaments for gifts, but usually not for myself.

  16. Kay Morlen says:

    Been making them almost every year for 40 years!

  17. Mary M says:

    Yes and the tree loves them! I also make ornaments for gifts or package toppers.

  18. Kay says:

    Been making them for almost 40 years!

  19. Doris says:

    Yes, I am doing the Sonia Showalter fsl alphabel angels for my favorite people. They are beautiful.

  20. Jan Brannan says:

    Absolutely! This year it’s dog shapes using repurposed pendelton wool shirts.

  21. pat peters says:

    I embroidery lace and put them in Christmas cards

  22. Jennifer Behen says:

    I use to make my own ornaments but just don’t have the time any more.

  23. lawana whaley says:

    yes… following my mother’s tradition

  24. Kathy Clasen says:

    I have made ornaments in the past. I’d like to make more

  25. Karen Hansen says:

    I haven’t made my own ornaments yet – but would love to replace those regular store-bought ones with some that reflect my love of sewing and creativity! It would be great to have a tree decorated with only “important”, personal, and unique expression!

  26. Melissa says:

    I don’t make my own ornaments…with 4 kids, including a 2 year old – my tree seems to get covered in THEIR creations & that’s fine. But with this kit you can bet I’d have some of MINE on their next year!

  27. Kathy Bumb says:

    I make quite a few of them. Year after year I add another two or three to homemade ornaments using various techniques – sewing, paper mache, paper, wood, etc. Have a great holiday season!!!!

  28. Robin says:

    Sometimes I do and I find I like those best

  29. Emily H says:

    Yes I do! :) I love making them. I wish I had more time to do it. These zippers look like a lot of fun!!

  30. Savannagal says:

    This is such a cute idea, especially for using up left over zippers or reusing those from old clothes.

    I do make my own ornaments at times. Not every year, but once in a while. I have quite a few ornaments that I cross stitched, some that I made with plastic canvas, and others from found objects. I love crafts.

  31. Denise Garceau says:

    Yes I do. I use my embroidery machine to create Lace Snowflakes to give as ornaments.

  32. Margaret Schindler says:

    I used to make all my ornaments now I try to make at least 2 at Christmas. I give them to the grandchildren to add to their tree. No one knows who will get the ornaments each year. I surprise them.

  33. Tammy says:

    One year I made bead ornaments, and they have all disappeared!!! Hmmmm…. looking good on everyone else’s trees. I just started with machine embroidery, and I am hoping to have the time to make some FSL ornaments for MY tree.

  34. glenda choat says:

    I have made ornaments to sell and give. Love to use the printable fabric when making them.

  35. Bonnie Johnson says:

    I do make my christmas ornaments

  36. Lora Chaney says:

    I have been making my own ornaments since I was 12 when I recieved a kit to make wooden painted ornaments…..I have been hooked on crafting ever since and I love to combine different techniques.

  37. Tina says:

    I try!!!

  38. Vera says:

    Yes, I do!

  39. Anna Bowland says:

    I did when I was a kid and look forward to doing it with my kids!

  40. Patsy Gibbs, aka "gypsyjane" says:

    I have made ornaments for years and years. I love seeing my ornaments on the trees of family and friends… my own form of immortality. I embroider the date on each ornament, and each year as I decorate my tree, that embroidered date brings back memories of that year in my life.

  41. Ruth Ann Ketler says:

    Yes I do make my own ornaments. I started with the grandchildren were born and made them one every year so that when they get married they will have a set of their own. Such fun!

  42. Irina says:

    i have the tradition of making Christmas wreath together with my dad, while my mom is preparing the cookies.
    the Christmas wreath every year had different themes and it always makes me feel better.
    and because i have 3 wonderful cousins living near me, i am making Christmas boxes for candies.

  43. LadyRuna says:

    I make little ornaments to use instead of ribbons on gift packages so that the recipient receives two gifts (the ornament and the gift itself)

  44. Vanessa says:

    Yes! I’m currently working on some felt ornaments. I hope they’re finished in time.

  45. Kay Mc says:

    I make some ornaments for exchanges with my quilt friends. These zipper ornaments would be great for those exchanges.

  46. Mary White says:

    My favorite homemade ornaments are so easy to make! We us half applesauce and half cinnamon…mix until it forms a dough, roll out and use cookie cutters for shapes. Poke a hole at the top to hang from the tree and let dry overnight. They give off a wonderful apple-cinnamon smell long after Christmas is over!!

  47. Margo says:

    I do make my own ornaments! I’ve made several in years past, but so far this year I have only made one. I’m always on the look out for fun new patterns.

  48. Marian says:

    I have made some, but would like to make more!

  49. Brenda says:

    I haven’t made as many ornaments as I’d like to. Hope we can change that next year.

  50. Teresa Guerrero Impson says:

    I always make my own ornaments for as gifts for my children and family, for the tree, as gift tags, etc. I’ve sold some, but I mostly give them away to drum up business and in the spirit of the season.
