Christmas Ornament Swap Ideas


There's still time to sign up at Daisy Quilts to join in for Christmas Ornament Swap .

I made a heap of these little cushiony things for family members last year . I know you are thinking mmm what a nice little thing to attach to a gift , well sorry these were the gifts !

It has become a bit of a tradition that my siblings , all 7 of them , receive a new handmade ornament from me . I must get started on this years soon !

Don't forget to see Robyn about signing up for the swap !

Hi Clare!! :D
Guess what?! That's exactly what our families do too!
Our special Christmas decorations are our christmas gifts and I wouldn't have it any other way... Every Christmas when we hang them on our tree they bring memmories and thoughts of our family with them!
I love this tradition :D

What a great little ornament.

I have given ornaments to my family in the past but just ran out steam these last few Christmases. I think it is time I got back into the swing of things.

Love the idea of giving home made ornaments! I have a friend who does that - they are great to get out each year.

Great idea to start with something handmade.

It is so hard to believe that Chirstmas will be here so soon. What a nice tradition you have, giving Christas ornaments. Maybe i will start that with my boys....

What a lovely tradition!! I try to make something as our gifts to the family every year, but usually run out of time... so thank you for these quick and great ideas!!

Thanks also for visiting my blog xx
