Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments

Thank you my friends for being here today, sharing some more of my favorite Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments.

Snowball Christmas Ornaments

I started by tearing toilet paper into 1-2″ rough pieces. Then using Modge Podge, I worked in small areas by

coating the ornament with MP, then pressing the bits of tissue into the decoupage medium. I would follow up by

brushing some MP over the bits of attached paper.

While the ornament was still goopified…I quickly rolled it into faux snow. I patted it on and squished it into the wet decoupaged TP.

Farmhouse Galvanized Buckets Christmas Ornaments

I just love this ornament. Especially because you use a tiny galvanized bucket!

Just two things Needed:

  • Mini metal galvanized buckets
  • Shipping tape

First, print out the image on paper at wallet size on a laser printer. Ink jet copies will not work because the ink will smear.

Here's the image already sized to wallet size.

If you don’t have a laser printer, a copy shop like Staples can make it for you for less than $1. And you’ll have enough to make multiple ornaments.

Next, trim around the image closely and stick a piece of shipping tape over it. Make sure the tape covers all the image.

Run your piece of paper with the tape on it under warm water and begin removing the paper from the tape. You might have to work at it a little bit. Getting ready for the magic to happen! …

TADA! Aren’t these decals made with tape amazing!

Now just stick them on the little buckets and you have the cutest little farmhouse Christmas ornament, North Pole style!

Drop Cloth Rag Ball

Materials Needed:

  • 3" Styrofoam ball
  • Jute twine
  • Drop cloth or cotton duck cloth
  • Hot glue gun

I understand if you don't have drop cloth fabric laying around because unless you use it frequently - your not going to have one. Although more expensive, you can use a 100% cotton fabric like duck cotton. If you like the different colors, you can simply bleach some.

If your planning on making a lot of these ornaments, 1 yard is plenty.

Cut a one-inch strip of drop cloth. I like to snip mine a little at the top, and then tear it the rest of the way. This gives it that stringy look. If you want the cut to be a little cleaner, just cut it all the way.

Put a little hot glue on a 3″ styrofoam ball and attach the end of a drop cloth strip. Just start working your way around the ball, until the entire thing is covered. I kind of cross over back and forth, which you can see in the video tutorial above.

Once the entire ball is covered, take a 10″ piece of jute twine and make a little loop. Tie a knot in the end and glue it onto the drop cloth covered ball.

Repeat. Repeat.

Framed Christmas Ornaments

Materials we'll need:

Step 1. Small wood frame - I found this one at Hobby Lobby for only $1.99 - it measures 4" x 4"

Step 2. I've created this artwork at 4" x 4" for you to simply print.

Step 3. Cut out your artwork and glue to a piece of cardboard - cereal box, old calendar

Step 4. Brush on some Mod Podge to the top of your cardboard, then place the artwork on top. Using your fingers, go over it lightly to smooth out any air bubbles.

Step 5. Place your artwork on the back of your frame and tape in place.

Step 6. Cut a piece of twine or ribbon to hang them from - add a dot of hot glue - place ribbon or twine and let dry.
