Ornaments deck the halls with craft, creativity and creatures

Holiday ornaments that go beyond the ordinary

They're charming. They're glitzy. And they're often amusing. Holiday ornaments have moved beyond simple glass balls and icicles that catch the light.

And with the current appreciation for handcrafted goods, today's ornaments include felted animals (especially dogs), bottle brush creatures and other whimsical characters. Letters are big this year, as are gilded brass and bright colors.

You can even take the crafted element into your own hands by printing Harry Allen Design's Radiant Tangent 2014 3D printable ornament, which is available as a free download.
