DIY Wooden Christmas Ornament

December 05, 2016
I wanted to let you all know we have a winner for the Holland House cooking wines.
The winner was chosen by and the winner has been notified by email.
Thank you to all who participated!
I have always enjoyed creating and even though I do encounter "dry spells," I am always super inspired during the Holidays and this year is no exception. 
This is our first true Christmas settled in our new home.
Last year at this time we were in a Hotel counting down the days, minutes and hours for the magic moment when we could move into our  country home.
I may have gone a little crazy with Christmas crafts and decorating this year, but goodness I have thoroughly enjoyed every second.


Today I am sharing a short little tutorial on this  DIY Wooden Christmas ornament.
The inspiration to create my own Christmas ornaments all began when I collaborated with a fantastic group of creative bloggers for 31 Handmade Christmas Ornaments.
My contribution to this festive and crafty group were these rustic Christmas Wreath ornaments.


The joy didn't top there, the next ornament up is this primitive and yet dressy 
set of Clothespin Angels.


So here we are today with another simple and yet cute little wooden Christmas ornament that you could make with a group of many or a few.
This craft could easily be completed in a Sunday school class, girl scout troop, with children of all ages or a gathering of gals for a Christmas luncheon.

  • 1. White Acrylic paint
  • 2. Green Acrylic paint
  • 3. Bulky red yarn

Directions For Making DIY Wooden Christmas Ornament


The beauty of this ornament is in the simplicity and minimal cost involved.

I purchased all of the materials including the wooden ornament at Michaels Craft Store.

  • 1. Remove twine from the wooden ornament.
  • 2. Lay ornament on a flat surface and tape off the lower 1/4 portion of the ornament.
  • 3. Paint the lower 1/4 portion with green acrylic paint.
  • 4. Add red stick on embellishments.
  • 5. Cut red yarn to desired length and use as ornament hanger.
  • 6. Using white acrylic paint dry brush white snowflakes on upper 3/4 of wooden ornament.
  • 7. Let dry for 30 minutes and wooden ornament is ready to hang.


I am so excited to be able to share with each of you on how to make two of these ornaments, plus one other Christmas ornament live on Hometalk on December 12th.
It's going to a nifty experience for us all!

Much love sweet friend!
