I am so excited because it’s finally December! I will be bringing you one post every day for the next 12 days for the annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop where I join 50 other talented ladies to bring you Christmas inspiration and cheer! Last year I made this ornament out of an old Easter egg, LOL! But today’s post is a tutorial on how to make an adorable DIY Farmhouse Christmas ornament wood sign. It will cost less than $1 to make because you will already have most of the supplies at home.

So let’s get to it!
Supplies for your DIY farmhouse Christmas ornament:
- Wooden dowel – I got mine at Hobby Lobby and they are the same size I used in my Dollar Tree star tutorial
- Small miter saw & box
- Printer paper
- Thin cardboard (like from a cereal box)
- Wood Stain ( I used Provincial)
- E6000 Glue & clear tape
You want to cut your dowels down to 3.75 inches, sand the edges (they won’t need much), then stain them with your wood stain of choice. Wipe off the excess stain and let dry overnight.
Glue your dowels together with the E6000 glue. This is how I did mine since I wanted a square shape and they were all the same length.
Print out what you want on your mini sign. You can find a lot of free printables on Pinterest or you can make your own.
Cut them out and glue them onto thin cardboard for a little more sturdiness. I used a combination of cereal boxes and an old calendar etc.
Use the E6000 to glue the paper adhered to the cardboard onto the wooden frame.
Then cut your ribbon and glue to the back of the sign.
Quick tip: I like to place clear tape across the back of the ribbon to hold it down while it dries and then I just leave it there since it’s going to get covered anyway.
You can leave it like this, but I added another cardboard layer to make it cleaner on the back.
And that’s it! There you have it! An adorable mini farmhouse wood sign that you can hang on your Christmas tree and everyone will love!
