Raise your crayons for the Cool Mom Picks & Etsy ornament contest winners

Color your own paper ornament design contest winnerYou talented artists, you! You made it so hard for us to choose among all the amazing entries to our Cool Mom Picks + Etsy color your own paper ornament design contest to support Housing Works, and we have, after much deliberation, finally picked our 8 winning designs.

You can purchase them as 2 downloadable, printable PDFs for sale at the Etsy store for a mere $3–with all proceeds being donated to Housing Works, an incredible organization. Just $3 for an endless number of ornaments that kids can color, assemble, hang from a tree, or use to make their own cards and hand out to friends.

Each of the fantastic designs were chosen for originality,
seasonality, and colorability (or something like that) for all of our
eager crayon-wielding kids. Huge congrats to our winners:

Elea Lutz of Nostalgia
Oana Befort
Linda Kuo of LK Studio
Steph Guo of Zom-B
Chantal Vincent
Rebekah Potter of Bloks by R. Potter Studio
Joy Charde of Creative Mama
Zoe of A Quick Study


Many thanks to everyone who participated, on behalf of many kids everywhere who will take great joy in cutting, coloring, and constructing these beautiful holiday ornaments.

Now go grab some nice card stock and make sure your printer ink is full! -Liz, Kristen, and everyone at CMP

Download the color-your-own ornament PDFs for just $3 at the Etsy store to help support Housing Works.


And if you happen to be in the NYC area, make sure to visit the first ever Etsy Lab Kids event on Saturday, December 11, where your kids can partake in all sorts of crafty goodness (including decorating these awesome ornaments) all to benefit Housing Works too.

    Perfect timing! The kiddoes were just bugging me to break out the ornaments and we haven’t even put up the tree yet so– score! Beautiful and wonderful cause.
