There is a misconception about homemade Christmas ornaments. Many novice crafters think that crafting homemade ornaments is cheaper than buying ornaments. It is sometimes. If you have a basic craft supplies stash and craft often, then it is usually cheaper to make them. If you buy supplies from the Dollar store when you can and use craft store coupons, then the cost in materials is negligible. However, the value of homemade ornaments far outweigh the material cost. Memories are made crafting the perfect ornaments together as a family.
