Our friend Justine at Design Skool gave us her picks for holiday ornaments; we love their classic shapes and handcrafted qualities—and the fact that there are alternatives to what we see in the stores all around us.

Above: A selection of Delicate Wooden Snowflake Christmas Tree Ornaments from Quite Alright Designs; $12.50 each at her Etsy store.

Above: Snug Stars Christmas Card includes three wooden ornaments that are actually the asterisks from three fonts—Arial, Times New Roman, and Verdana—packaged together in a Christmas card; $17.90 at Snug Studio's Etsy shop.

Above: The Reclaimed-Art Garland Kit features circles cut from leftover letterpress prints and enough jute twine to make three 6-foot garlands; $15 at Branch Home.

Above: Blitzen Ornament from Royal Buffet, cut from a page of a vintage French magazine and embellished with gold glitter; $7 via Etsy.
