Puffy Pom-Pom Ornaments
These yarn balls bring to mind ice-skating parties and warm hats. Make the poms using a pom-pom creator (available at crafts stores) and colorful acrylic yarn. Or, wrap scads of yarn around the middle of a paper-towel roll, slip off the yarn, and tie at the center. Clip the loop ends and fluff.

Snap candid shots of friends, then turn the photos into ornaments. Hot-glue lace and ribbon around the edges of the pictures. Wrap the cut ends to the backs of the photos, finishing them with more glue to prevent fraying. Attach a hanging loop to the back of each photo ornament.
