DIY Ornaments for Baby’s First Christmas

I have to admit I’ve been really rotten at trying to make this Christmas special for Beck since I know he won’t remember it. But you know what? I will remember it, and I want to make it good! So I’m changing my attitude this week and doing some festive activities with my little sidekick. One of the things on my list is to make an ornament for him. I haven’t quite decided what to do yet, but here are some ideas I love.

  • Felt Trees

    These stacked trees would be cute in a variety of colors or all white.

    You could personalize this one to include the name and date of your child. Make a whole batch to customize year after year.

  • Monogrammed


    These monogrammed ornaments were made with cookie cutters for a fast but cute diy project.

    These remind me of all the handmade ornaments we decorated the tree with as a kid so I think they’re really sweet.
