- Wood Slices ( mine are about 3″ round)
- Jute Twine
- #18 x 5/8″ wire nails
- print off of the images you want to make sized to fit
- 9/64 drill bit
I started by drilling a hole at the top of the wood slices. A 9/64 drill bit was perfect for this. It was big enough to make slipping some jute twine through the hole relatively easy.
Next step is attaching your printout on top of the wood slices. I used painter’s tape to hold the paper in place while hammering.
Now it’s hammer time! You want to study your printout to determine where you will be placing the nails. Images with straight lines are the easiest.
If you’ve got curves you want to space them close enough to capture the curves.
Then it’s time to attach the twine. I picked an outer edge nail to tie off and then worked my way around. If the space is tight a needle nose pliers can be helpful. Once you’ve finished around your shape you tie off the twine on one of the nails.
And you’ve got this adorable, rustic Christmas ornament!
I went with a classic Christmas tree,
a cute Candy Cane,
and a Gingerbread Man. The possibilities are endless! I hope you get a chance to make some yourself this upcoming Christmas season.
Now check out all these amazing, inspiring Christmas ornaments from my blogging friends… and tomorrow Barb, from The Everyday Home will be sharing hers!
