It’s Day 6 and we are sharing DIY Ornament Ideas!
I’m happy to share for Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas series. Today is all about DIY Ornaments! I love to create my own ornaments each year. Last year, I created these fun DIY Pinecone Ornaments. Keeping with that rustic, farmhouse feel, this year I am sharing an easy painted ornament using wood slices.
Last spring, my friend, Michelle (Our Crafty Mom) and I attended the Vintage Market Days® together. I had purchased a bag of wood slices there. When I was going through my craft stash, I found them and thought they would make great ornaments.
If you would like to make these ornaments, you can easily purchase pre-drilled wood slices here.
- Wood slice ornaments
- Chalk paint
- Chalk Art chalk paste
I began by drilling a small hole at the top of each one.
Then, using Annie Sloan chalk paint, I painted one side of each wood slice. I used the colors Graphite and Paris Grey.
I love that chalk paint dries so quickly and cleans up so easily!
Once the paint was dry, I used my stencils and Chalk Art chalk paste from A Maker’s Studio to personalize these ornaments.
To one, I added a festive message and to the other, I added my daughter’s initial.
Finally, just thread the twine through the hole and add a festive ribbon. Such a quick and easy project!
