Inspiration: Christmas Ornaments

I belong to a website called Organized Christmas which starting in October, helps you take a 6 week journey preparing for Christmas in order to be done and ready to celebrate come the beginning of December. I have done this for 3 years now and find it an amazingly useful tool.

So with that, the Christmas countdown began yesterday and my mind has turned to all things Christmas.

I am looking for some inspiration for making Christmas ornaments this year both as gifts and as party favors. We host a Christmas Open House each December and I like to give out a little party favor at the end to my guests (very Martha Stewart-y if I do say so myself). So this year I would really like to make ornaments with the year on them for my guests to have. This might not be a small feat considering we are expecting about 100 people this year.

So here is my inspiration today from brilliant crafters found on Etsy.

We went to a Hannakuh/Christmas party a few years back and all received an ornament on it with "Hannamus 2006". They were decorated like a snowman. Really cute and goes on our tree each year!!

Ooh, I like the place setting idea w/ the ornaments! ;) That's really cool...and wow, you sure have a project ahead of you if you're expecting 100 guests! That's GREAT! Have fun! :)

I like your finds. Let me tell you what I did for close friends and family LAST Christmas. I got the clear glass ornaments. And with my cricut cutter I cut out vinyl with everyone's last name and added the year. On the opposite side i cut out a vinyl deer (on the cricut) then put red bling on the deers nose to make it look like a reindeer.
