I would not part with a single one of the 4,263,193 glittery, sequin-crusted, sparkly tree ornaments my brothers and I made when we were little.
But if I were decorating a Christmas tree that had room for even one new bauble? I’d want simple, Scandi-style Christmas ornaments, made from bits of birch bark and wood shavings, to create a winter woodland. Here are 10 favorites:
