There is something I just love about the classic, simple, functional look of brown kraft paper. I have even purchased those plain brown papier-mâché ornaments and hung them directly on the tree without any decorating. I think I just love the relief of the matte brown paper mixed in with the lights and the other shiny ornaments.
With leftover brown paper bag tops, from the Punch Game Advent Calendar, I decided to make some more ornaments with my son. These were super easy to make. I found the clear ornaments at Michaels for less than $1 each. I opted for plastic instead of glass, so my son could help me stuff them with no risk of breakage.
