10 DIY Holiday Keepsake Ornaments

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is creating DIY holiday keepsake ornaments each year to remember important events, stages in life, and vacations. The next year as we decorate the tree as a family we are reminded of those precious memories by the ornaments we hang. I’ve compiled a list of 10 easy DIY holiday keepsake ornaments you can make yourself. They are simple and frugal options and I hope they will become family favorites at your house as you create them. At the bottom of this post you’ll find links to other DIY holiday posts from the Festive Family bloggers as well as the entry form for our HUGE Festive Family Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway with over $1800 in prizes that ends November 17th.
