Last Minute Christmas Ornaments from Scraps and Sticks

Are you a sparkly and perfect ornament person, or a crafty and sentimental ornament person? I go back and forth. Some years I favor the traditional shimmering round ornaments, but in the last couple of years I’ve enjoyed displaying some perfectly imperfect ornaments made by my son.

Today I wanted to share some crafty Christmas ornaments I whipped up yesterday. I decided I was going to limit myself to only using things I already had on hand.

So here’s what I created using some scrap wood, hot glue, sticks, Modge podge and other random items I found hiding in my craft closet. I was “inspired” by larger decor projects I created earlier this year.

Minimalist Modern Frame (Inspired by this project)

And since I still had one more round wood plaque, I snapped a quick pic of the kiddos and cranked out our 2015 family ornament. (I just used our printer and some Modge podge.)
