TWENTY THURSDAYS TILL CHRISTMAS // Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments

8b2b1c47-6884-4894-863a-06073c213f83-1I have always loved handmade Christmas ornaments. When you see my tree in December you will see how many I own!

I thought it would be fun to make some ornaments this year featuring some of my favorite farmhouses on Instagram. The first home I used for an ornament is the SheShed that belongs to @cottonstem. (And I will send this to you Erin!)

This is a very easy DIY and you can make some of these yourselves.

  • Wooden craft sticks
  • Wooden drink stirrers (taken from Starbucks with permission)
  • Craft glue

  • Paint
  • Exacto knife and scissors
