Clothespin Christmas Ornaments!

I know, I know…Christmas Ornaments! We haven’t even made it through Thanksgiving yet! I get it. I just love, love, L-O-V-E Christmas and I know there are others out there like me! Besides this give everyone plenty of time to make these super easy ornaments so when the tree goes up you can add them on!

I always try to make crafts with what I have already at home. I’ll say it again and again “not everyone has tons of money to spend making crafts”. This time what I used to make these my mama had laying around her house so….I “borrowed” aka “snuck” these awesome goodies from her! Shhh! Don’t tell my mama!

Are you ready to get creating?
Great! Let’s do this!

I’m going to show each individual ornament with a list of supplies and instructions.
