Worried that in twenty years you’ll have trouble remembering what it was that your little kid wanted more than anything else for Christmas this year?

Record their wish lists for posterity with an ornament that will remind the whole family every year that in 2012, your younger daughter wanted a dragon for Christmas and your older daughter wanted a computer game that does not actually exist (Trust me: I Googled!).

You can make this ornament on the front side of a scratched CD or DVD, leaving the shiny side to refract the Christmas lights, or, if you don’t have any old CDs, from the back of an old cardboard record album cover. Either way, you’ll always remember this Christmas!

Ready to get crafty? Grab some old CDs or reclaimed cardboard and click here for the tutorial!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
