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)
Used: Scrap wood, wood stain, white posterboard, printer paper, hot glue and twine. I printed “Joy to the World” rather than writing it with my ancient metallic markers.
Chalkboard Frame (inspired by this post)
Used: Wood from old door hanger, wood stain, chalkboard tape, chalk, hot glue and twine.
Penny Mirror (inspired by this popular project)
Used: Round wood plaque, wood stain, mirror, pennies, staple gun and twine
Crafting with Sticks (inspired by this post)
Bonus Stick Ornament – because our trees and shrubs are just so generous
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.)
Well that’s all I have for you today. I won’t be posting anything more before Christmas, so I hope you all enjoy special time with your loved ones over then next couple weeks!
