Day 4 of 5 Days of Craftsmas: DIY Christmas Ornaments

Hello crafty people! We’re into Day __ of our 12 days of Craftmas! Today I will be showing you a few ornament ideas to decorate your Christmas tree!


Washi Tape Ornaments

I have a confession to make. I have an obsession with Washi tape. For those of you who don’t know, washi tape is a patterned tape that feels similar to masking tape, but is much more decorative and pretty. It’s also very addictive, because you can put it on anything and make it beautiful.

This project comes from :

You’ll need:

Styrofoam balls
Washi tape of your choice
Modge Podge

Simply wrap the Washi tape around the ball to form an “equator”, cut the tape at the end, and repeat until the ball is covered. When that is done, spread a layer of Modge Podge over it and let it dry. If you want to hang it, you can get a length of ribbon, a pin and a bead, passing the bead through the pin, and then pinning the ribbon to the Styrofoam ball. You can find a detailed explanation here.


Christmas List Ornament

This adorable little list ornament tutorial is from Honeybear Lane:


To make it, you’ll need:

A wooden spool
Paint (in your colour of choice)
Ribbon (should be thin)
White cardstock
A fine tip pen
Rubber bands
A glue gun

First you need to paint the spool. When it’s dry, cut out a strip of cardstock and wrap it around the spool, trimming it to your desired length. Then you can glue gun a strip of cardstock to the spool. Wrap the strip around the spool and secure it with a rubber band.You can write whatever you want on it, like your own Christmas list! String it up using the ribbon so you can hang it up! The full instructions are here.


So. Many. Clear. Ornaments.

There are many, many, MANY ornament ideas out there for using clear ornaments:

You’ll need:

Clear ornaments
Items of your choice
Your imagination!

The clear glass or clear plastic ornaments can be bought from craft stores or online. Almost all of them are some variation of adding items to to the interior of the ball. You can add whatever you’d like to them and you’ll have pretty ornament to display on your tree!
