If you haven’t checked out the new social media site Pinterest, now is the time! The holidays are quickly approaching, and inspiration abounds on Pinterest for holiday recipes, DIY Christmas décor, gift ideas and more. We’ve scoured other boards for great holiday ideas to share with you over the next few weeks. For today, here are some of our favorite DIY Christmas ornament crafts.

Kissing Ball Ornament
A circular object, some leftover fabric and ribbon, and a sprig of festive greenery are all you need to make this simple ornament.

Yarn Ball Ornaments
Create a unique (and colorful) ornament from nothing more than kniting yarn. We like this ornament craft–just check out the cover of the November/December Natural Home & Garden!

Twiggy Christmas Tree Ornaments
A little bit of paint can dress up these rustic Christmas ornaments, or leave yours “au naturel” for a cleaner, simpler look.

Poinsettia Ornaments
Simple but beautiful, these poinsettia Christmas ornaments are made from nothing more than coffee filters, upcycled toilet paper rolls and a touch of paint.

Striped Paper Ornament
Add a touch of color to your tree with this whimsical paper ornament–which its creator describes as a “spaceship which has crashed into a circus tent.”

Decoupaged Newspaper Ornaments
Revamp old ornaments with some newspaper and a little decoupage action!

Cinnamon Cookie and Citrus Slice Ornaments
We’re allowed a shameless plug every now and then, right? Fill your tree with the fragrance of citrus and cinnamon with these two projects from the Natural Home & Garden archives.
