3 DIY Rustic + Farmhouse Ornaments in 10 minutes

Tis the season! I love this time of year…the smell of hot cocoa, rain in the windows when the weather allows, and the family gathered around a fireplace. At least that is the perfect scene of what this time of year should look like. The holiday’s can come in a rush and it’s easy to get lost in the Christmas chaos when worrying about what gift to pick out for each person that you love. Take a minute this year to make some memories while checking things off of your own list. Especially by making some homemade  ornaments for your tree! Your kids don’t have to be the only ones having all the fun. Add to their beloved school project decorations and create your own rustic ornaments this year with just a few easy steps. By doing so, it will add a personal touch to your décor  and will give your home a warm and joyful look during the holidays. Everyone will be asking where you got them!






If you're anything like me, I LOVE to change up and rotate my Christmas color scheme and décor every year! There is something about switching up things a bit that gets me excited. My personality loves change and being able to come up with something new whenever I can is really awesome to me. Now don't get me wrong, I do love to have traditions, which I do but within those traditions, I change up the colors and with changing up the colors, I use what I have available in my ever growing collection of ornaments and ribbons. That is something you should add to every year. Even if you grab it when the season is over and the sales are amazing. Especially at Michaels! Trust me, you will want to grab what you love for 90% off, store it and when the next year rolls around you will be proud of how much money you saved and proud of what your tree will look like. So today, with that said, I am changing up my colors once again and DIY'ing some rustic + farmhouse ornaments to create a unique tree this year. If I'm being completely honest, I don't have an official plan or color scheme. I'm just going to wing it and see what I come up with. You can check out my Christmas tree from last year HERE and see my secret to transforming some cheap Walmart garland to look expensive HERE.

Last year I used a lot of faux succulents in my garland. See, it's fun to think outside of the box! I absolutely loved being unique but this year I may just be leaning a little more towards traditional. Maybe winter wonderland  who knows!
