    Clear ornaments can be picked up at any craft store.

    To do a nature ornament, you can drop in some fur, pine needles or what have you. You can also drop in cranberries for a little color. Put the top on, add a cute ribbon for personality, and voila!

    If you have extra garland or even tinsel, you can also put that in the ornament for a sparkly ornament.

    Kids love this last one…a Rudolph ornament!

    Get a green ornament. Put your thumb in brown paint and do a thumb print on the ornament. Stick on a red nose. Then use a sharpie marker to put on eyes and draw antlers off the top.
