Our tree may not be a designer tree, but it has meaningful ornaments that we love. Our children have their own ornament collections that we started for them from the time they were babies at their first Christmas. When they move out of our house and start their own homes, they take their ornaments with them so that they have a start on their own tree. They usually receive ornaments that have special meaning to the events in their lives during the past year. I gave Maddy and Jake theirs last night as we decorated the tree so that they could go ahead and use them this year. I picked these up at Hobby Lobby when everything was 50% off.
Here are some paint-your-own ornament kits from Dollar Tree that you can order on-line if you want a lot of them, or you can buy them in the store for a dollar a piece.
