  While warming up for the season, we often forget the real meaning of the holidays: to spend time with loved ones. So instead of rushing through your Christmas shopping, stay home and make simple, creative ornaments with the family! Here is what you will need to get started: a pair of scissors, a marker, cardboard, a hot glue gun, small pompoms, and strings or pipe cleaners.

1. Begin by drawing any shape on the cardboard and cut it out. Make sure to poke a small hole near the top of the cardboard.

2. Embellish the cardboard with pompoms. When finished, pull the string or pipe cleaner through the hole and hang it onto the christmas tree!

  Create these easy ornaments any way you want. You can mix up the pompom colors or even sprinkle glitter on them for the festive holiday spirit. In addition, this is a great way to spend time with your family and friends, especially with kids. And remember to share the peace, love, and happiness! Happy Holidays!
