I recently made these DIY travel map Christmas ornaments, and I just love how they turned out! Best of all, they were simple to make, so it will be easy for me to create more each time we visit a new destination. Get the easy, step by step tutorial for these travel map ornaments.

Another of my favorite Christmas ornaments are these DIY color-dipped letter ornaments that I created for the kids. These were inspired by one of my favorite stores, but I couldn't justify the price per letter to buy the whole alphabet. My DIY version was a fun and easy project that saved me tons of money! Get the full tutorial here.
