We are moving on to Holiday 2015 y’all!
Today, 16 ladies and I are each sharing an ornament that we made for a DIY Christmas Ornament Blog Hop!
For two days, you can stop by each blog on the list and get fun, creative, handmade, DIY Christmas Ornament ideas!
To tell you the truth, when my friend Vicki at 2 Bees in a Pod asked me if I’d like to join the hop, I was nervous. Crafting is not my best sport. I was worried that while they were all doing Martha Stewart level stuff, mine would be more like a kindergarten craft. But I said yes anyway.
After thinking about what kind of ornament would fit my style (simple) and what would also be easy for a “craft challenged” girl to make, I headed out to the store for supplies and this is what I came up with:
A DIY Button Ornament
I think it’s a little bit vintage, a little bit bohemian, and little bit heirloom.
Kinda like one your gramma would give you.
Here’s what you need to make your own:
Buttons, Ribbon and Twine.
Styrofoam Balls, Glue Gun, Small Hooks, Spray Paint
Screw the small hooks in to the Styrofoam balls and then spray paint with your color of choice. Helpful tip: I used an egg carton for this step to make the spray painting easy.
Glue the buttons to your ornament with your glue gun. I started with mainly larger buttons on the borrom and worked my way up with smaller buttons.
Loop twine through your hook for hanging and add a bow.
A simple heirloom style ornament.
I hope you liked my DIY Christmas Ornament!
