It’s easy to go to the local big box store and pick up a ton of ornaments. But that’s not very personal. There’s something so amazing about a Christmas tree decorated with things that are near and dear to your heart. A twist on the handmade style we talk about so often is to add unique personal household items that mean something to you. Remember that silver baby spoon you inherited from your grandmother? It’s just sitting in a box in a drawer. Why not display it on your tree this year? Here are some other fun and unique Christmas tree ornaments you may not have considered. Most of them are probably already somewhere in your house!
