DIY Christmas Ornament Round-Up

Happy Monday! :) Well, if you're like me, your Christmas tree is up. But with one string of lights on it and no ornaments. And the other strings of lights are plugged in and sitting on a pile on the floor. On. LOL. My hubby finishes up with his semester today (!!) so we are planning on finishing decorating tonight. Yay!

I've been looking for fun and semi-easy DIY ornament tutorials to make (with all my spare time ;)) or to make with my son. There are SO many fabulous ornament tutorials out there. Yay! Here are a few that I really liked. Do you have any links to other tutorials?! Please leave a comment below!
