DIY Ornaments

Do you like DIY projects that are really fun to put together and don’t take that much time? Well if that’s the case then I’ve got some ideas for you today!  I love making ornaments!

The 3 projects I’m sharing today all use the same base, which is store bought, with a variety of die cuts to embellish. My die cuts were cut from card stocks in the traditional Christmas colors of red, white and green, which are on special this month at CutCardStock!



I’m using round MDF picture frame ornaments as my base and decided to make 2 of the ornaments shakers. This was pretty easy to do as these frames have an acrylic, which I glued to the inside front. The large star glitter was added. I die cut a piece of card stock and glued to the back of the frame. It’s ready to decorate.




For the first ornament I used:  STARDREAM METALLIC JUPITER (RED) 105LB 8.5 X 11 CARD STOCKSILK GLITTER RED FLASH DISCOUNT CARD STOCK  BASIS WHITE 80LB CARDSTOCK  BASIS 8.5X11 WHITE 110LB CARDSTOCK  BASIS 8.5X11 OLIVE 80LB CARDSTOCK  BASIS 8.5X11 GREEN 80LB CARDSTOCK DCS DISCOUNT CARD STOCK: CANVAS TEXTURED GINGER SNAP CARD STOCK

The stardream metallic card was used for the back and front of the frame, as seen above. I die cut a gingerbread man, berries, pine fronds and a sentiment.




Pieces of red, green and white scraps were glued to the back of the gingerbread man. I started adding the die cuts.

The pine fronds and berries were added to the left side of the frame. A bow was added to finish.


Card stocks used for the second ornament:  STARDREAM METALLIC JUPITER (RED) 105LB 8.5 X 11 SILK GLITTER RED FLASH DISCOUNT CARD STOCK  BASIS 8.5X11 OLIVE 80LB CARDSTOCK  DCS DISCOUNT CARD STOCK: CANVAS TEXTURED BONSAI GREEN – 8.5X11 INCH  BASIS 8.5X11 WHITE 110LB CARDSTOCK  SILK GLITTER OPULENT OPAL 12X12 CARD STOCK  CHRISTMAS PRINT 6X6 CARD STOCK PAD – (green glitter)

Die cutting was done.





The “Peace” die cut was adhered to the opulent opal circle die cut and added inside the frame. The other die cuts are layered and glued to the frame front. I added a bow and red pearls.



The third project is another shaker put together in the same way as the first. I used:  STARDREAM METALLIC JUPITER (RED) 105LB 8.5 X 11 CARD STOCK BASIS 8.5X11 WHITE 110LB CARDSTOCK  SILK GLITTER OPULENT OPAL 12X12 CARD STOCK BASIS 8.5X11 GREEN 80LB CARDSTOCK  POP TONE SNO CONE 8.5X11 DISCOUNT CARD STOCK

I die cut a snowflake, snowman and sentiment.



All the pieces were adhered to the frame front with a bow to finish.




Imagine what you can do and give this a try! These DIY ornament projects would be fun to do with your kids and would make cute gifts for just about anyone!

  2. These are adorable!! Using the premade base was genius and must have made these come together much more quickly than if you had to make the ornament base. Thanks for playing with LTSCB.
