What would the holidays be without a little tinsel?! And you just know I had to pick the rainbow color scheme for this project, because why not go big! These DIY tinsel ornaments are the easiest way to add color to your tree and you can use your leftover decorating scraps as the material. PLUS you only need a few minutes to pull this all together, so this is just a win all around if I do say so myself! Here’s how: Continue reading…
The time is finally here! It’s time to decorate for Christmas, y’all! If you’re looking to go beyond the tree and give your walls some love, then you’ll absolutely want to make this ornament wall confetti. It’s fun AND completely renter friendly. Win-win my friends! Here’s how:
Start by cutting out a circle out of your cardboard. This circle cutter will allow you to adjust the size of the ornaments (mine were done on the smallest setting).
Next, cover with tape. Trim the excess with scissors. You’ll follow the same steps to make the bulb topper, just cut your cardboard in the shape of a trapezoid. And if you want to add a hook, you can either cut one out of construction paper (what I did) or use floral wire.
Add a bit of Duck® washi to the back to hang on the wall and you’re done! I chose to hang mine in the shape of a tree, but how cool would an entire wall of these look?! You could even use these to spell out a word (like Merry, X-Mas, etc) if you really wanted to be ambitious.
I know, I know, a Christmas DIY before Thanksgiving is even here. Well.. I waited as long as I could! Plus I know many of your will be decorating the day after you feast, so I thought I’d share an idea in case you’re looking to do a little crafting over the holiday! This ornament diy takes about ten minutes and can be customized for any style or personality type. Easy peasy all the way here friends. Here’s how:
Trim your tattoo to size and then peel the plastic layer off the front. Position on your ornament and wet the back with a sponge for about 30 seconds. Be sure to hold your tattoo as still a possible to not smudge the design. Peel paper off and let your tattoo dry on the surface.
If you don’t like the way it came out, you can remove with rubbing alcohol. But, if you did it right, seal with a thin layer of decoupage and let dry! Super easy, right? And with so many temporary tattoo options, you could make these for anyone in your family!
Hands down ornament projects are my favorite holiday craft. I’m always amazed with other people think of when it comes to decorating and styling them; there are just so, so many possibilities!
