It’s Day 6 – DIY Ornament Ideas!


I have a confession to make: I wasn’t actually going to do a tree this year. The tree and ornaments I have are all about 15 years old and have seen far better days. And, after that much time, my taste and everything have also changed considerably.

My old tree was white with lots of great old decorations we purchased from Walmart complete with really cool BLACK snowflakes!

But that’s just not my style anymore.

And, with how crazy my life was this summer, honestly, I was just planning on skipping it.

But then the holidays started coming around and then there’s also the fact that I’m a blogger and not posting about my Christmas tree would be sacrilege.

But, mostly, it turned out I WANTED a tree.

I wanted a little holiday decorating just for me in Grandma’s house. I have always LOVED holidays and birthdays and anything that brings people together so, really, who was I kidding when I thought I would skip the tree?!

But if I was going to be putting up a tree then it was going to have to be totally me and Grandma’s house!

So, that meant, it was time to start over.

All of the decorations and ornaments just had to be totally DIY and home made. (Not to mention I ended up buying a whole new tree too – can’t wait to show you guys – it is ADORABLE.)

I got to work coming up with some ornament ideas I could make myself.

My first attempt started with my grabbing my bag of leftover pine cones from my wreath project.

First I added hangers to them using the same wire I used on my wreaths and, while I was add it, I also added wire hangers to my mason jar lids as well. (Check out those adorable mason jar lids out on Amazon here!)

(Watch it any cut wire is dang sharp – I shed a lot of blood for this project lol)

I don’t have a real big tree so I only did thirty pine cone ornaments all together. I dusted all of them with aluminum mirror spray paint that I had leftover from a lamp project.

With my pine cones and mason jar lids ready to hang I got to work figuring out some other ideas.

I love bows so I purchased myself some red ribbon as well as some burlap ribbon and I also had my heart just set on using clothes pins somehow.

I made the red bows by simply looping and fluffing them as I went and then I secured them with my clothes pins. I made several bows of the red but the burlap was just too stiff to make small bows out of.

So, I decided to make a very simple little angel. I love them!

I had planned on spray painting the galvanized mason jar lids with the snowflake cutouts but they were too cute just as they were!

    These are so cute! I love the farmhouse look and I really like pinecones. Crafting can be dangerous sometimes, I’ve bled during projects too.

    Your tree is fantastic Tarah, so homespun and one of a kind. I especially love the little mason jar lids, and think its great that you left them galvanized.

    Beautiful tree, and I hear you about the blogger sacrilege thing, for me its the cooking. Bleck, foo, and no ho ho ho lol.

    Your tree looks so special with all of your handcrafted ornaments. My favorite is the mason jar lids. It is good you put up a tree, it will make you feel happy.

    I love those mason jar insert lids as ornaments! I bought a couple of sets of those this fall when all the canning stuff was on sale.
