How to Make Sweet DIY Holiday Ornaments in 3 Easy Steps

November sure went by quickly! December has started, which means the holiday season is full swing. I’m a huge fan of decorating and crafting each holiday season. After viewing Oubly’s holiday ornament card, it inspired me to make my own colorful ornaments that are extremely versatile.

These ornaments are easy to make and can match any color scheme with the right paint. You can pick up all of the supplies at a local craft store and get to work. If you have children, they too will love creating their own special ornaments for the Christmas tree or holiday packages.

1.  The sky is the limit when painting and decorating the wooden beads. Use washi tape to create bands of color or the end of a paintbrush to create polka dots.

2. I found that my wooden beads needed many coats of paint to achieve the bright color I was looking for. Once they were dry, I inserted the metal eyelets into the top of the ornament.

3. Last, I added a piece of baker’s twine plus a bow to each ornament to complete the look.
