    christmas tree ornaments

    So i'm done with this years ornaments. I make about 35-50 a year. this year was gnomes. what do i do for next year? NO folded star ones, they take too long to make that many. So do you all have a go to pattern? Is there a favorite one you made or received? any idea? I want to start now, when i can get fabrics on sale at JA's. I decorate my tree in aqua/white/silver. but make ornaments for everyone. Thanks everyone, and have a Merry Christmas
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I have made little fans out of wide lace. Just pleat the lace fan like, tie on a ribbon and hot glue a little flower and I thought they were really pretty and don't take long to make.

    JoAnn's carries mini painting canvas, as does Walmart (I think). Can you cover them with Christmas fabric and add ribbon to make it look like a package?

    I crocheted 250 ornaments 5 years ago. There are pattern books out there, but lots of free patterns available. My whole tree is snowflakes and glass icicles.

    Here is a cute vintage ornament you could make. Mine is about 4 " long by 4" at the bottom. You could make it smaller. It is all yo yos.

    This year I made oragami wreath's for everyone's tree ornament. They were fun to do.

    Not sure where I saw this, probably doesn't fit the need of your #'s.
    Reusing an old Christmas/winter themed men's necktie, and purchasing the small balsam frames from a craft store. You simply cut a piece of the tie to fit the frame, add a bow or any embellishment to the top. I was surprised how neat this was. Again this idea probably doesn't fit your number. Would be fun to start saving/collecting Christmas ties for the future.
