Ladies, please email your shipping address, and the names of your children, to Sylvia{at}OrthodoxMom{dot}com. Please make the subject line ORNAMENT SWAP. Once I receive everyone’s address I will forward them to the entire group.


  • Each family will make one ornament for each participating family (total of 9 including one for home).
  • Ornaments should be homemade and should have an Orthodox theme.
  • Ornaments, along with a card stating who it is from, should be postmarked by Wednesday, December 16.

Some ideas for ornaments are:

Cookie clay ornaments

Cinnamon ornaments

Color or cut an icon out and place in an ornament frame

The Crafty Crow has a fun list of kid-friendly ornaments

You can pretty much “Orthodox” any ornament idea by adding an icon or something. Old catalogs are perfect for cutting out icons to use. They are the perfect size and there is usually a great selection. The Conciliar Press catalog is my favorite one. Whenever a new one arrives, I look forward to cutting up the old one and making something fun with the boys. πŸ™‚

If anyone has any questions just ask! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!!

  1. Where do you get those glow in the dark stars? Do you have to order them or are they available in a store? What a great idea for Sunday School .I don't have any catalogs right now,but someone posted some small icons that would work-if I can remember which site!Thanks,AndreaPS Do you have a good recipe for Greek Christmas bread to share?

  2. Hi Andrea! I found the stars at the grocery store, if I remember correctly. They have them in a lot of places though, check the 1.00 aisles at Target and Wal-Mart or just randomly hanging in supermarket aisles. πŸ™‚ Enjoy!!

  3. Thanks. I wouldn't have thought to look there.I realized that my Light-n-Life catalog has the little icon pictures so we can at least do something next Sunday. Hope you'll post some of the ornaments you receive.I'm sure I am not the only one looking for ideas.Thanks for the ideas. Andrea in PA
