Decorating the Christmas tree every year is a time honored event. Whether you use artificial or go out hunting for a fresh tree every year, hanging ornaments, lights, and trimmings is a fun way to gather the family together. At my house growing up, putting the tree together (usually about a week after Thanksgiving), was a huge family affair. We unloaded the boxes from the attic, put some festive music on, and helped each other out while finding the perfect spot for each unique thing. Some were childhood handmades, others were collected from generations handed down, or bought recently at Hallmark. As I got older, new editions got less and less (man, we had a ton of ornaments!) but we did try and get a new piece during family vacations or for special memories throughout that year. If your family is looking for new additions this year, we’d love to share with you these unique and handmade ornaments and trimmings from some of our favorite online artisans. Happy holidays, everyone!
P.S. Like what you see? There is so much where that came from. Head to Etsy.com and search “ornament” or “tree trimming” for thousands of awesome options. The Monday after Thanksgiving is also known as “Cyber Monday,” so there are great deals on many online finds.
