J.PattonDecember is underway, which means your holiday shopping days are numbered. If you find yourself out of gift ideas for your family and friends, I just may have the solution you’ve been searching for: homemade holiday ornaments.

I first found these orange ornaments on Good Housekeeping, but there are many variations of these instructions on the Internet. They are fun, eco-friendly gifts that your loved ones will use year after year. Plus, nothing gets you into the holiday spirit quite like constructing a heartfelt gift with your own two hands. So, give a few out as gifts, and don’t forget to save a few for your tree at home.
