Christmas ornament crafts

Gnome Ornaments

Supplies:
  • Cardboard triangle
  • Scraps of fabric
  • Button or pom pom
  • Glue Gun
  • Yarn
  • Thread or string to hang ornament

First cover the cardboard triangle with scrap fabric. Add lace or tassels for extra spunk!

Hot glue in place.

Measure out yarn on the back of the cardboard. This will be the gnome’s beard. Cut to desired length.

Place a button or pom pom in the center of the gnome and underneath the fabric hat.

Don’t forget to add a loop at the top of your gnome with thread to hang from your Christmas tree!

Wood Bead Wreaths

Supplies:
  • Wood beads (large and small)
  • Floral wire
  • Greenery 
  • Thin ribbon
  • Hot glue
  • Heat gun (optional)

Simply string the beads, alternating between large and small, onto the floral wire and twisting the top once done.

Hot glue thin ribbon tied into a bow onto the top of the wreath along with some faux greenery.

Use these to decorate your tree or use as name tags to gift to others!

Snowmen Dice

Supplies:
  • Dice
  • White, Black, Orange paint
  • Twine

This craft is great if you have plenty of mismatched dice in the game closet!

Use white paint to cover all sides of the dice. 

Use black paint to paint dots as the mouth and eyes of your snowmen. You could even use some of the imprinted dots already on the dice.

Paint an orange triangle for the nose and tie a loop at the top of the dice to hang! 

Enjoy! 

Icicle Ornaments

Supplies:
  • Borax
  • Pipe cleaners
  • String
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glass jar

After boiling water in a pot, Add in scoops of Borax. My recipe is about 3 cups of water per 9 tbsp of Borax. 

Gently stir until dissolved and water becomes clear.

Either pour this mixture into a glass jar or leave in the pot.

Cut and tie pipe cleaners into shapes that you would like your icicles. Vertical lines or snowflakes designs are our favorite.

Tie string to the top of your pipe cleaner and hang from a utensil sitting over top of the jar.

Be sure to leave plenty of room for the pipe cleaner to crystalize all the way around.

Leave overnight and your icicles will be formed in the morning and ready to hang!
