Looking for a last minute Christmas craft? Some DIY ornaments might just be what you need! I put together a list of seven that I’ve tried or really want to
1. Marbled Glass Ornaments
2. Wedding Invitation Ornaments
I made this one last year and love how it turned out. This would make a great gift for someone with a December wedding. Find the tutorial here.
3. Chalk Board Embroidery Hoop Ornaments
I haven’t tried this yet, but I’ve added them to my list! The Pom Poms make them extra cute and festive. The best part is you can embroidery anything! This would be cute for baby’s first Christmas, the year (2017), or your favorite holiday saying. Click the link above for the tutorial from Sugar Bee Crafts.
4. Embroidered Felt Ornaments
Of course I have to add my homemade advent calendar ornament set from a couple weeks ago to the list. Last year I made these two. Idaho for our first Christmas together in Rexburg and a Sockeye Salmon to match Zach’s embroidered pillow.
5. Wood Burned Ornaments
For these you need a wood burner, but after that the possibilities are endless! With older kids (the wood burner gets very hot) these would be so fun to see their creations from years ago on the tree. For these I used a combination of wood burning and paint.
6. Painted Glass Ornaments
These are a staple for DIY ornaments. So many options and great for kids to be creative and help design too. I’ve seen a lot of great Star Wars themed ones on Pinterest lately. Whats fun about these is you can paint the whole ornament or leave some negative space like above. I promise it’s a lot cuter with a Christmas tree in the background. Unfortunately we don’t have one up this year so you just get my wall. Sorry!
These are another great one for kids because they can pick their own paper and help make them too. I have to recommend leather for the loops because it just looks so good against pine green trees. Find the tutorial for these paper ornaments here.
