Internet Christmas Ornament Inspirations

Make these four ornaments for the holidays: an adorable pom pom snowman, a Let it Snow! bucket of snowballs, a Christmas lollipop, and a ribbon tree.

While looking online for ideas for Christmas ornaments for my red and white holiday tree, I found tutorials for the following four fun ornaments.

Pom Pom Snowman

I found this Pom Pom Snowman Craft Project on Homemade Gifts Made Easy. I only had the images shown in the photo above, but found the website with written instructions later. The supplies for my version include white yarn, needle and thread, scissors, micro-mini black buttons, candy cane chenille stems, 3/8″ ribbon, 1/8th ribbon, glue, and a pom pom maker.


I used some chunky white yarn I had in my crochet supplies. The instructions on the pom pom maker were easy to follow. It is important to count the number of wraps for each side.

Initially, I purchased pre-made pom poms in two sizes for this project, but did not care for the way the snowman body looked – hence the handmade pom poms.

After tying the two pom poms together with the yarn hanging from them, I formed mufflers with the candy cane twist chenille stems and glued them on. I loosely sewed on the micro-mini buttons for the eyes and buttons on the body. If I pulled too tight, they were buried in the pom poms. A bit of glue helped secure them in place. Ribbon for a scarf completed his ensemble. I used 1/8″ ribbon to hang him but cord, yarn, or pearl cotton would work.

My pom pom snowman is now on my red and white holiday tree. I will say that regular weight yarn may have worked better than chunky weight – my snowman has an uncanny resemblance to a bichon frise puppy!

Let it Snow! Christmas Ornament

When I saw these Tin Buckets 2.25 inch on our CreateForLess website, I thought of an ornament tutorial I saw on Pinterest. Here is my version of the Snowball Christmas Ornament from Creative Green Living.

I painted the tin bucket with red enamel paint, used a white fine-tip  paint marker to write Let it Snow!, and filled it with needle felted snowballs in various sizes I made from white wool roving and a felting tool. For more information on needle felting, please see my other blogs such as Hedgehog Needle Felting Fun. I put a bunch of wool roving in the bottom and secured the snowballs in place with glue. A ribbon bow and a ribbon to hang it were the finishing touches.

Fabric Yo-Yo Lollipop Christmas Ornament

The video for the Fabric Yo–Yo Lollipop Christmas Ornaments from Crouton Crackerjacks gives you step-by-step instructions for this cute ornament. Supplies used include a lollipop stick, a scrap of cardstock or cardboard, needle and thread, scissors, glue, two buttons, 5/8″ ribbon, and 1/8th ribbon.

Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments

The tutorial for Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments from Fireflies and Mudpies shows you how to make this pretty, easy ornament from ribbon. They used a tree branch for the trunk, but in keeping with my red and white theme, I used a lollipop stick. I selected an assortment of red and white ribbons  (alternating colors), tied each ribbon on with a square knot (the old right over left, left over right method), secured them with some glue, and trimmed the ends to mimic a tree. A bit of embellishment, a bow, and ribbon to hang it – and the ribbon tree ornament was complete and on the tree.

These are just a few of the many Christmas ornament inspirations from the internet…

and CreateForLess is great place to find the supplies at discounted prices!
