Holiday Countdown #8: More DIY Ornaments

By December 20, 2010

Follow me on:

Holiday ornaments (Photo by J Burrell) More college ornaments? OK, how about some little people to grace your tree? This one is dressed like a college cheerleader, but she could be a sorority girl, a football player or a chem student who has spent so much time in the lab, his hair has turned green. The hair is made of embroidery floss (and really, neon green is a great color for hair), the head is a wooden bead, and the pipe cleaner body just needs some dressing up. Get the directions here.

These make great ornaments for the tree, but they're also a lovely little craft to keep teens and college kids occupied -- although you may end up with a bunch of zombies and goth dolls on your tree. ( ... hmmm .... zombie ornaments hold a certain appeal though.) On Christmas Day, they're great to do with young visitors as well.
