While it's easier to just hang store-bought and conventional baubles on your Christmas tree, you can still express your very own brand of creativity by displaying unique and festive trinkets. Need ideas? Check these out.

1. Star Wars Stormtrooper


May the force be with you this holiday season when you hang this Stormtrooper with a Christmas hat. Such a cutie!

2. Wine Cork Snowman


Don't throw your wine corks just yet. Upcycle them into holiday decors: paint over them and turn them into cute little snowmen.

3. Scrabble Tiles


Repurpose old Scrabble tiles into holiday ornaments—spell family members' names or spell out Christmassy words like "Joy," "Santa," or "Candy Canes".

4. Washi Tape


What to do with those generic Christmas balls? Use washi tape—a DIY favourite tool—to wrap them and decorate them in fun, colourful designs.

5. Harry Potter Hogwarts Houses


Harry Potter fans, you don't need the sorting hat to decide which symbol belongs on your tree—because you can display all 'em Hogwarts houses!

6. Golden Snitch


For those going for a sparkly gold theme, you can add this Golden Snitch ornament to your holiday decoration repertoire. Check out the step-by-step guide on how to create the wings and ball here.

7. Gift Box


A gift box on your tree is just a fitting ornament—it's the season for giving presents anyway! (If you still haven't started your Christmas shopping, refer to our holiday gift guide.)

8. Superheroes


Let your favourite superhero character "protect" and prettify your Christmas tree. Batman and Superman will surely get along well here.

9. Ninja Turtles


Speaking of superheroes, our favourite kickin' Ninja Turtles also make for adorable Christmas curios.

10. Crochet Patterns


All those crocheting that mum and grandma did should not go to waste. Display their projects on the tree for all to see and appreciate.

11. Family Photos


Now, that's what you call a family tree—one filled with photographs of happy memories! Christmas is the most perfect time to display your family snapshots since it's the season of reunions and family get-togethers.

12. Coloured Buttons


One of the most offbeat ornaments is located just inside your sewing kit. Collect those buttons and DIY them into colourful trinkets.

13. Bottle Caps


Here's an art project you can do with the kids especially now that school is over: Recycle bottle caps and work your creative magic on them. The result will be a beautiful pendant ornament.

14. Musical Sheets


Another DIY activity with the little ones: Cut out stars from cardboards then plaster star-shaped musical sheets over them.

15. Chalkboard


Add spunky character to your Christmas tree with handwritten messages courtesy of chalkboard ornaments.

16. Origami


Origami makes beautiful paper objects possible. Christmas is a good time to use your folding skills and create origami decorations.

17. Terrarium Kit


Going green knows no season. Create a glass-enclosed garden world just like this project and you have your very own terrarium decor at home.
