Get creative with your grandchildren by making your own tree decorations this year. All you need to do for this is buy colored felt online, some scissors, twine and a glue gun. For younger kids you can help them decorate simple shapes with buttons, pompoms, glitter and for the older kids they can make their own favourite characters.

Decoupaged tissue paper ornament:

For this you will need – coloured tissue paper, plastic ball ornaments and ribbon to hang. This can be a great collaboration craft, bringing together both older and younger kids. The younger kids can rip the tissue paper and the older kids can glue it to the ball. Not sure how it works? Check out a tutorial here

Confetti ornaments:

Want to add some bling to your tree? Maybe a confetti ornament is the one for you! For this you will need – a round ornament ball (or any other shape you want to cover), a paintbrush, some glue, and some confetti. Then, simply coat the ball in glue, roll it in a plate of confetti, and voila! You are there. Check out this tutorial to see the step by step. 

Dried citrus ornaments:

Perfect for a more natural approach, these stunning citrus ornaments almost look like stained glass when you look through them. For this decoration, all you will need are: oranges, parchment paper and natural twine. To make, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Cut the oranges in slices and place in the oven for approximately 3 hours, turning them over to remain flat. Once they are out of the oven and dry, poke a hole at the top, tie the twine and hang on the tree. 

Marble ornaments:
