We have another Christmas ornament to make for you today! Christmas has to be the best season of the year for crafting. There are so many cute things to make! DIY ornaments are definitely my favorite though.

This is a DIY Christmas ornament for music-loving families or cat owners! If you’re a family that loves a little noise, make a few extra of these handmade Christmas Ornaments for the kids to use as tambourines. Can you say hours of entertainment? If you’re a cat owner, you already know this ornament will save you so much broken glass since it can be used as a warning bell for when the cat is in the tree. You’re welcome.

Of course, these ornaments can also just stay on the tree because they are a beautiful addition to any Christmas decor. Let me teach you how to make some of your own with this Christmas ornament tutorial!

I love how the added touch of gold looks on my Christmas tree. For the jingle bell obsessed, it’s the perfect gift! I’ve also thought about making a giant version as a wreath for my door. What do you think? Too much jingling?
