Making Handmade Ornaments Is EASY!

I had so much fun making handmade ornaments this year! I had most of the supplies on hand. I love the way my entry tree came out.

I need more ornaments, but I'm trying to keep the mentality that "less is more".

Christmas tree day

I wanted to make this tree silver, white and natural. I love the natural nature element! It took me awhile, but it looks like I finally see the beauty of burlap... Well, glitter can make anything look great!! 😍

Here's our tree at night.

Oooooo..... pretty. I had some fun working the settings on my camera.

Here are the ornaments I made this year. The first one up is a Doily Ornament. I spray painted some old ornaments white to use with a lot of the ornaments I planned on making.

With this one, I just wrapped the ornament up with a doily, tied it with a ribbon and added a twine string to hang. So simple! I have a few other doilies I've made over the years, that I'll be doing this with!

Next up, a pinecone ornament. I glued a silver bow on top. Then I glued a wooden bead and ran a silver strand through to hang it. This one was so easy and fast!

Then I made a burlap ornament. This one was a bit more time consuming. I cut little squares out of burlap material and then glued them on one by one. Then a ribbon to hang. So simple!

Next up, a lacey ornament. This one is a favorite, but of course it was the most time consuming, so I only made one. I cut about 1-2 in. pieces of lace, ribbon, tulle and burlap and glued them on.

Just fold the piece of ribbon in half and just dot the glue on the fold and stick it on the ornament. It came out so soft and pretty!!

The twine ornament next to it was super easy, too! Just some twine, glue and an ornament, then round and round you go!

I also used the twine to make a ball of twine ornament. Those were really fun and easy!! Easy.... blow up a balloon, wrap with twine, brush on watered down glue and dry. Pop the balloon, and spray with glitter!

I hope by now you realize the possibilities are endless... Next, I made a garland ornament. Easy Peasy!! Start with a white ornament. I had this fluffy white garland that I just wrapped around and glued, then added a puff of tulle with a white ribbon.

These paper ball ornaments are so sweet.  Here is the site for the template. You just print them out and cut and put together. There are 3 sizes. I did the small and medium.

This burlap garland came out WAY better than I thought it would! I bought just plain burlap ribbon at Wally World, so cheap there!

Then I printed up "Joy to the world" cut it out and used it as a stencil and did the whole 2 rolls! Then sprayed it all with glitter!!! Love it!!!

So, as you can see, I've been a little busy having some crafting fun! Just a few supplies and a glue gun and you can go to town!
