Welcome back to another day of DIY for the Homemade Holiday DIY Tour!
Each day this week so far I've shared a bit of handmade goodness as I decorate around our home for the holidays.
Today, I am sharing our DIY wooden chalkboard ornaments. What I love about these is that they are great for the holidays but the fun with these cute little spheres is that the fun doesn't end with Christmas! These will make great gift tags or even fun garland for your home!
I purchased most of my supplies from our local Ben Franklin Crafts Store but I am sure you could pick up most of this from Michael's or online at Save on Crafts as well!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Wooden Cuts in shape of your choice ( I used a total of 20 on our tree)
Chalkboard paint in color of your choice (I chose black)
Soapstone or Chalk
HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. Take your wooden cut and paintbrush and paint the chalkboard paint onto the piece. Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect. That's kinda the point of making it all yourself!
2. Once your paint has dried use your drill ( I used a 1/8" bit) to drill a hole in the top of the wood. This is where you will thread your twine to hang your ornament.
3. Once you've made the hole, cut a piece of twine about 8 inches long and thread it through the hole.
4. Use your chalk or soapstone to get a little artistic on each ornament. You can write a family name, draw some wreaths, or go beyond the holidays with your art!
5. Voila! You're done!
Now, THAT may be the easiest project yet!
I sure hope you all enjoyed today's project! Come back tomorrow for more fun as we close out with a full tour of our tree and little spaces in our home!
Happiest of Wednesdays, loves!
