Decorative Wooden Ornament

By:

Spice up your Christmas tree with this homemade Christmas ornament from Shelley Detton. You can easily make this Decorative Wooden Ornament to display during the holiday season and save as a family keepsake.


 Decorative Wooden Ornament

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. For each ornament, you will need to trace the circle or oval shape onto the cardstock and cut out the shape slightly smaller than the wood. Pour the Modpodge into the little dish and lay down a paper towel or piece of cardstock as a work surface.

  2. Each image is printed with some "wiggle room" in case the sizes of the wooden discs vary. To ensure that the wording will be centered on your disc, place image on top of disc and hold up to a light source. You will be able to center the words using the shadow of the disk shape as a guide. Hold paper in place firmly with one hand, and use the thumb of your other hand to create a crease all the way around the disc.

  3. Holding disc in your hand, coat top side of wood with a thick coat of Modpodge. Place paper on top, flipping upside down to more easily see that the wood is lining up with the crease all around the edge of the shape. Place right side up onto the paper towel, give the paper a careful rub to adhere it to the wood, and quickly brush Modpodge over the top of the paper. If your ink is the smear-able kind, brush as little as possible so the red ink doesn't bleed all over the place. If bleeding occurs, you can minimize it by gently blotting with a paper towel. Set aside to dry completely.

  4. When paper is completely dry, turn upside down and trim away excess with a sharp Xacto knife. I discovered that it is easier to cut when disc is on top of folded cardstock than on a paper towel, as is pictured here.

  5. Coat top and sides of disc with Modpodge, and place face down into tray of glitter. Set aside and allow to dry completely. When dry, brush off excess glitter.

  6. Cut ribbon in desired lengths and numbers. You will need a skinny ribbon for the hanger, about 8 inches long. The circles will need 6 or 8 of each variety of ribbon. The ovals should have 8 of each ribbon variety. In this example, the silver ribbon is about an inch long and the red ribbon is about 2.5" long. Each ornament is unique, there is no set formula for making these. That's the fun of it - designing each one to be one of a kind!

  7. Glue the first set of ribbons on the backside, doing 1 or 2 at a time because the hot glue hardens so quickly. Try to get the ribbon pieces to align with the one opposite, as if there were 3 ribbons instead of six. I always start at the top (12:00 position) and then do the bottom one (6:00 position). Then I place the 2 on the right hand side and finally the 2 on the left hand side. Using 8 ribbons is easier because you can do the 12:00 + 6:00, then the 9:00 + 3:00 and fill in with the final 4 pieces centered in the 4 gaps.

  8. Glue the second set of ribbons in the gaps. This ribbon has dots on one side, it's glued face down.

  9. If you want to create loops in the ribbon, fold them over and glue them now. An alternative method is to hot-glue the loops together first before attaching to the disc. Glue the skinny ribbon to the top of the ornament.

  10. Glue the cardstock shape over the back to hide all the uglies...and that's it!
