1. Disney inspired ornaments.

I love this idea so much that I’m pondering a Disney themed Christmas next year for the Gillespie house! Especially if I can make a lot of the ornaments! Saves big $$.
2. Picture ornaments
On a white tabletop sit a bunch of spherical ornaments filled with red crickled confetti and black and white images of children. A smiling young boy and a baby in a seat are prominent. This is just one way to dress up your Christmas ornaments.
Picture ornaments are tried and true, everyone loves them! I really like the thought of the crinkle paper or maybe tinsel to fill the space in the ornament. 
3. Christmas Snow Scene
A woman's hand holds a Mason jar lid in which a miniature winter scene has been created. There are a string of small holiday lights above a deer and trees.
This idea is perfect for the kiddos. And I’ll bet you have some mason jar lids already laying around, I know I do!
4. Tattoo Ornaments
Glass sphere ornaments dangle from a woman's hand. The ornaments have intricate flower patterns around them made using temporary tattoos.
If you are searching for a way to make your tree look expensive without spending all your holiday gift money then you won’t find a better idea then tattoo Christmas ornaments. This idea definitely holds the power of customization!
5. Pineapple Pinecone Ornaments 
Yellow pinecones topped with paper leaves create "pineapple" ornaments, which are hung on this close-up view of a pink Christmas tree. You can reimagine your ornaments with this tutorial.
If you’re from the south like me where its still 80 something for most of November and December then maybe you would like to embrace a tropical flare for the holidays. 
I love the possibilities of these pineapple ornaments especially with the pink Christmas tree!
