Typically, I try to stick with the handmade ornaments. We've got pipecleaner pentacles up there, giant orange suns, pinecones covered in glitter, and more. We've got the ones the kids make in class each year, featuring their fall school picture. There's a set of wooden ones that I painted myself when I was about nine. There's one which was given to my husband a long time ago by his sister who has since passed away. I've got a set given to my daughter by my ex's granny each year, even though we were no longer related to her by marriage. I love hanging these all up each year, because every year we add a bit to them, and these ornaments tell the story of our family, and all its convoluted and twisted branches.
If you don't have any family ornaments, why not start making some this year? In addition to the links above, one of the easiest ones to make is the Salt Dough Ornament -- just use flour and some cookie cutters, and then paint to your heart's content. Let the kids go crazy, and start a brand new tradition in your home. Or, use the Spell Ornament instructions to hang a bit of magic right there on your tree.
