Spice Up Your Tree with Christmas Ball Ornaments

By: Chriscarlyle
On rainy days, there is nothing better than craft-time. Crafts are productive projects that allow children to pass the time creatively while creating something that can be given as a gift. And often times, the parents can join right in on the fun. Even many recreational programs and summer camps include craft time to help boys and girls exercise the artistic side of their brains-sadly, in the age of television, not a lot of time is dedicated to artistic endeavors.

While Christmas ball ornaments are cheap, they aren't poorly made. They just use common materials such as glass and metal, and they look absolutely beautiful. Recent advances in their manufacturing processes have resulted in new and wonderful designs, incorporating some very familiar brands such as Coca Cola and your favorite sports teams on Christmas ball ornaments, spicing them up beyond the familiar solid colors of yesteryear.

The great thing about Christmas gift baskets is that you can personalize it to fit with the person you're making it for. If you're making it for your mailman, for example, you can decorate it with mail related items. You can fill the Christmas gift baskets with whatever you'd like and you don't have to spend a lot of money on it. However, it does make a very nice gesture and it's got that personal touch that everyone would appreciate.

However, you can also buy baby first Christmas ornaments to help commemorate the first Christmas of your child. With one of these, you'll be able to fondly look back in years to come and remember what times were like, and it's a gift that you can cherish for the rest of your life.

Other Christmas ornaments to make include ornaments made with pipe cleaners and felt. These can be cut into various shapes including animals, insects and even people. Pipe cleaners can be used to craft anything from antennae to hanging hooks, and eyes can easily be glued onto anything from butterflies to reindeer.

To make the Christmas gift basket, simply buy a basket, some straw or tissue paper, some clear wrap, a bow and the items to go in the basket. Put the tissue paper or straw in the bottom of the basket and then put the gifts on top. Wrap the Christmas gift basket with the clear wrapping and tie it closed with the bow. There you go; you have a great Christmas gift idea and it only took you a few minutes to make it. So if you're stuck on what to buy someone, make them a basket and show them you care by adding a personal touch.
