Happy Hump Day! Hope you are all are doing well on this very chilly day in Georgia. Last night we lit a fire in our fireplace for the first time since moving into our home and it was glorious!
Today I will be making two different versions of the ornament above so you can see how versatile this simple piece can be for your decor this season.
Dollar Tree sells these little wood pieces for the Christmas season. They come several to one pack. I am using this bell one below…
…as well as this snowflake one.
For each of these, I took the spackle that they sell at Dollar Tree and filled in the little holes at the top as well as the line across the bell piece.
I sanded them smooth and they painted them with my favorite white chalk paint.
I set those to dry and then I took this little hexagonal plague I purchased at Michael’s in their dollar section. It already had a little jute loop to hang it up.
I taped the inside up and painted the inside and outside of the frame. I used black chalk paint for this, but you can use whichever color you prefer.
I set that aside and went back to my smaller pieces. Since, I am really loving ticking stripes right now, I decided to add some to my bell. I chose to set it off to the side so I taped it off with washi tape and painted it black.
Then I removed the tape and once the paint was dry I did a perpendicular line to the first one, intersecting them on the bottom right.
Then to add the smaller stripes on either side I used a ruler and a sharpie.
Once done, I used these adhesive dot risers from Dollar Tree to raise the little snowflake and bell before placing them on the plaque.
I still used hot glue on the back of the snowflake and bell, because the risers don’t hold up as great with items that are a little heavier than paper or card-stock.
I then placed them in the centers of the plaques.
And that was it!
I LOVE how these turned out! They are rustic, farmhouse, neutral and just classic! They are also a great size so they are really noticeable on the Christmas tree.
And the bell with those ticking stripes! ?
These are perfect for any farmhouse styled tree! And the color schemes and themes are endless! What do you think?
If you liked these you will also LOVE these other DIYs!
I will see you in the next one!
Until then… adios!
