8 DIY Ornaments to Make in 15 Minutes or Less

2 Y ears ago by

Some of the most meaningful ornaments hanging on the tree are handmade with love. DIY ornaments add a special, personal touch to your holiday décor. Make them for your own tree or as gifts… you can even host an ornament-making party for your friends! I’ve rounded up 8 DIY ornaments that you can whip up in just 15 minutes or less.

1. Embellished Galvanized Ornament

Add Mod Podge® and glitter to these fun galvanized ornaments to dress them up and add a bit of sparkle.

2. Mason Jar Lid Ornament

Repurpose mason jar lids and tiny snowy scenes. Make them all a little different and create a tiny village.

3. Christmas Wish List Ornament

I love this idea of ornament time capsules for your kids. Preserve your child’s Christmas wish list each year in a plastic craft ornament.

4. Plaster Ornaments

These plaster ornaments come pre-made, you just add the paint! Use colors that match your theme and add a coat of gloss to finish.

5. Snowy Scene Snap Ornament

These plastic ornaments open all the way so you can fill them with just about anything! We’ve added snow, pine cones & a traditional cardinal. Add your fillers and just snap them closed. It’s that simple!

6. Pearl Filled Plastic Ornament

Clear plastic ornaments are a crafters dream. The possibilities are endless. For this elegant frosted tree, we just filled the ornament with pearls and it made quite a statement.

7. Chalkboard Label Ornament

This one is another simple plastic ornament project. Just fill it with pom poms (or anything really!) and then add the chalkboard label to the front with a special message.

8. Santa Belt Chalkboard Ornament

    I am worried about my snap ornaments staying shut. It seems like they can pop open too easily! Any ideas?
