This year ditch the popsicle stick art and put down the plastic googly eyes and pine cones and deck your halls right. We like to trim our tree with a collection of ornaments we’e designed and made ourselves as well as few store bought pieces, which can be really hit or miss. To save you time hunting down those elusive, not horrendously ugly mass produced ornaments, we’ve made a list of our six favorite picks.

Themis Mobile Mono, Artecnica (above) Though technically not an , we’d love to decorate exclusively with Clara von Zweigbergk’s cheery geometric constellations.

Pantone Christmas Ornament, Cooper-Hewitt Shop. Buck the tired red and green motif with ornaments in your favorite colors.


Astro Ornament, . A flocked, retro astroid ornament makes for a very midcentury .


Felt Ball Garland, . You could easily make this yourself, and with better colors, too, but if you’re short on time chances are there’s a not too far away.

Flock Together Ornament, . Wooden ornaments make for a nice mix of materials on typically glass-heavy trees.


Elf Mobile Ornament, Store. Time design by , 1953
