DIY Christmas Ornaments
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. You guessed it Christmas time. I love everything about Christmas. The Christmas tree, Christmas ornaments, and decorations. It’s just such a happy and joyous time for our family. Of course, I love most decorating my home for the season. It’s a DIYers dream season. So many fun projects and things to make. Ekkk. I just love it if you can’t tell.
Where my 2 passions, DIYing and Saving money meet
While I would love nothing more than to walk into hobby lobby and buy everything my little heart desires. We just don’t have the budget for that. Honestly, I don’t have a budget for decorative items at all. If you have been around here for long you will know my family is working towards being completely debt free. Which means we watch every single penny we spend and save money every place we can. I always strive to find the absolute best deals on well EVERYTHING. So I don’t ever have much room in my budget for “extra” items like the home or seasonal decor. But that does not mean that I don’t decorate! Trust me I do and a lot. I have just learned ways to do it on a dime.
These Rae Dunn inspired ornaments are so perfect. I am going to put them on my small slim tree I got for $10 on clearance last year (more on that later) that goes in my kitchen. I’m doing a rustic look with red and black buffalo plaid.
Wood slices are so cheap and the perfect size for ornaments. Check out my DIY Snowman Wood Slice Ornaments HERE. You can get a whole bag of these wood Slices for just a few bucks.
These Rae Dunn inspired Christmas ornaments are super simple, adorably affordable and quick to make. They’d also make the perfect Christmas gift.
What you need
Cricut explore-any cutting machine or decals if you don’t have a cutting
Hot glue gun and glue
You are going to want to create your design in Cricut design space (or whatever software your using). The font used is The Skinny by Jusebox. You can download this file from www.dafont.com its free to use for personal use.
I used permanent black vinyl. Once cut weed your design and apply your transfer tape over top.
Center your design on your wood slice and apply. Making sure to press and rub down really well to ensure a good stick.
Once you have applied all your decals you can now hot glue on your twine to create a loop to hang your ornament.
And that is it. These Christmas ornaments are that simple to make.
