Each year, I make the boys a little ornament for Christmas. The idea is that when they leave the house one day, they will have a little collection of handmade ornaments to add to their own trees. We’re on year 11 now and it’s one of our favorite traditions. This year, I made cute little mini wreaths for their DIY Christmas ornaments. It’s such an easy project, I thought I’d share with you!
UPDATE: Thanks to Pioneer Woman for featuring these on her blog!
Aren’t these ornaments adorable? The best part is they were so easy to make! Not only did I mostly use items from around the house but it was easily a 10 minute project! (see below for supplies & links)
These ornaments started with a simple mason jar lid! Then, I wrapped each lid ring with mini pine garland, berry stems, and added a twine loop. To finish it off, I hot glued a cute little bow.
DIY Christmas Ornaments
- Canadian Pine Stems or Green Pipe Cleaner
- Mini Holly Berries – I used some from the Target Dollar spot similar to this berry garland but these holly stems are cute too!
- Metal Jar Lid Rings – I had some extra rings around the house, but always need extra!
- 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon – I used red ribbon that was on hand, but almost any thing would be pretty!
- Twine – I use this for everything! Including my Neutral Wrapping Paper this year
Could these be any easier? Or cuter! I already gave them to my boys and they loved them so much, they made their own with the extra supplies!
