Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Ornaments A.J. Made at Pre-school #WW

Even though I didn’t put up a Christmas tree since we’re traveling to my sister’s house for the holidays and she’s a master holiday decorator, I wanted to show off A.J. Christmas ornaments he made at pre-school.

He painted a picture frame with green and red paint, featuring his photo. I’ll bring this with us to hang on the tree at my sister’s house.

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer ornament made with pantyhose, a wire hanger and red glitter

His amazing art teacher also helped them create Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer ornaments using pantyhose, a wire hanger and red glitter. I would have never thought to do that. There’s still plenty of time to make one of your own since the children are out of school this week. This ornament won’t travel as well on the flight, so it will have to stay home.

I hope I don’t sound weird because I don’t put up a Christmas tree. But we’ve traveled every Christmas and just getting him ready to fly is enough work without adding assembling and decorating a tree to the mix. I’m also trying to make this as much of a stress-free holiday as possible since it’s also our family’s first Christmas without my Daddy.

Wishing you a blessed and safe holiday season.

  1. I have saved all of these ornaments year after year. My xmas tree looks completely home grown each year. I used to long for the fancy trees that they show in magazines with matching ornaments and beautiful garland. Now I love my tree more than anything….every single ornament on it has a story! Happy Holidays!

  2. Stress-free is the way to go this season! Those ornaments are too cute.

  3. His ornaments are so cute! The ones that they make are definitely better than the pricey fancy ones you buy in the store. My favorite ornament is one that I made for my mom when I was about 6 years old. 😉

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Thanks Charma. When he gets older I’ll definitely show these to him!

  5. Happy Holidays Kate!
    I think next year when he’s old enough to understand what Christmas is and what it represents, I’ll be a little more festive!
