[outfitting your christmas tree]

while decorating my tree over the weekend i started thinking about how i wish i had more handmade ornaments. i love the ornaments i have, but would love to add some more indie-friendly finds. it might be a little late to get them on my tree this year, but i thought it might be good to order now so i have them for next year. (and hopefully i can take advantage of some end-of-season sales while i'm at it!). here are some of my favorites that i've found so far.

  1. these ornaments feature hand carved house stamps stamped onto cotton linen blend fabric, lightly stuffed with poly fiber fill and backed in wool blend felt. s.jane :: $7
  2. i was introduced to the tradition of the christmas pickle as a young adult and now my family always hides a glass pickle in their christmas tree. i love this felt option, a little twist on the traditional glass. read more about the history of the christmas pickle here. sarahkladzyk :: $5
  3. i am amazed by paper ornaments like this one! per the seller's description, it uses thirty sheets of paper, interlocked together to create a delicate sphere! i can't imagine the hours of work that go into each of these. paper affection :: $38
  4. this little felt angel is made from eco-fi felt which is made from recycled plastic bottles! a good way to support an independent artist a well as our earth! saintly silver :: $12
  5. i'm such a sucker for nature themed ornaments. i have quite a few birds & feather-y ornaments in my collection. when i saw this precious little felted nest that is attached to a small clothespin, i knew it had to be included in this group. winsomehollow :: $14
  6. these little owls are another example of great recycled work. they feature vintage buttons and fabrics which means no two are exactly alike! WHIMSYlove :: $9
  7. i had to include these recycled bike chain ornaments for the guys out there. (or for the gals that need to buy for them!) again, i love that these are recycled parts which means good things for our environment. ReCycledConcepts :: $7
  8. i could seriously decorate my entire tree with these handknit pears! not only are they handknit, they're also handspun! and get this: it's filled with lavender AND comes gift wrapped free of charge! i think i'm in love! HandMeDowns :: $8

  1. I love that felt pickle! It reminds me of growing up–decorating my granny’s tree with my brothers and cousins was my favorite thing to do! She had this really old glass pickle ornament that was very popular with us kids. That one always had to get hung near the top to keep it away from us!
