OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI really do have the craftiest friends. Check out these amazing DIY hand painted acorn ornaments by my artist friend Jen. Aren’t they gorgeous?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love her unexpected, non-Christmas-y color combos.

These are the my favorite kind of gifts — one of a kind, don’t cost much (the acorns were free, in fact) and personable. I’ll treasure them forever.  I’m not 100 percent sure how Jen went about executing this project but I found how-to directions for crafters out there who’d like to give a similar project a go.

Here’s another clever homemade ornament idea, made by my other crafty friend Beth.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI might be able to handle making something like this one day with June. But Jen’s acorn ornaments? Forget it. Way out of my craft league.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe older I get, the more I enjoy collecting unique, one of a kind Christmas tree ornaments. So thanks again, Jen and Beth, for a few more stand out pieces to add to my collection.
