I 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.
W H A T Y O U ‘ L L N E E D:
- Wooden craft sticks
- Wooden drink stirrers (taken from Starbucks with permission)
- Craft glue
- Exacto knife and scissors
S T E P B Y S T E P:
Print out small photos of the house you would like to use for the ornament. Cut the ornament out of cardboard.
Using the wooden sticks, cut the wood to fill in the design of the home.
Try to use the wooden sticks to enhance the details of the home.
Next, paint all of the wooden pieces to match the home and glue them on to the cardboard.
I also made an ornament for the home owned by @thefauxmartha. (I am sending you this one Melissa!)
And of course, I made one for myself featuring @the100yearoldhome!
Won’t these look great on the trees in these homes!
