Today is Day 6 and that means we are halfway through the 12 Days of Christmas where I bring you 12 Christmas DIYs for 12 days! This is probably going to be the simplest DIY yet, with probably the most impact for the effort.
CHECK OUT all of the 12 Days of Christmas here!
You can also watch all of these video tutorials as well on on the playlist and see these back to back on the playlist!
So let’s get into it!
You will need some Dollar Tree small ornaments and some vase fillers. I got the vase fillers below from Hobby Lobby last year on clearance but they have them again this year and they are on sale.
NOTE: You don’t have to purchase anything for this… as a matter of fact if you have any old ornaments you aren’t using get them out and make this out of them. And if they aren’t the right color, a little can of spray paint helps too.
Next, you will need to remove the little hanging caps from the ornaments.
Then, you will need something to cut off the little piece the cap attaches too. I like to use my wood burning kit with the cutting tool.
I love my wood burning kit and used it for some of my fall decor. It is so versatile!
After those were done, I burned a small hole on the opposite side of the ornament as well. I will be stringing the ornaments so I need another hole.
Then finally with a large embroidery needle and some jute twine, string a combination of the fillers and ornaments until you have the right length and your desired pattern.
And that was literally all there is to it! Told you it was easy! And this only cost me a little over $5.
Beaded garland over mantles are so trendy right now, but they can get expensive so this is a great way to use a cheaper alternative or even old ornaments you may have lying around!
So simple, yet so chic!
We say “Bueno, bonito y barrato” in Spanish. 😉
Let me know what you think!
I will see you all tomorrow!
Until then… adios!
