How to make Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments
Farmhouse decor is still totally in and I love it so much because farmhouse decor:
- does not have to be perfect
- can be easily created by you
- works with almost any decor style
These DIY farmhouse Christmas ornaments ended up taking on a life of their own. I bought a few decorations I didn't even end up using, but that's ok. I love to have extra supplies at home and use what I find I love at the time of creation.
I decided to only use the embroidery hoops, berries and bottle brush trees. But I did pick up some cute little bottle bush wreaths I didn't end up using.
These ended up being simple, elegant, farmhouse-y and just the perfect ornament to add to nearly any holiday tree!
I am seriously so in love with these!
To create these DIY embroidery hoop farmhouse Christmas ornaments, you will need:
DIY Farmhouse Christmas Ornament Supplies:
- 5" Embroidery Hoops
- HomeRight Medium Spray Shelter
- HomeRight Finish Max Super Paint Sprayer
- Disposable Painting Tarp (optional)
- Black Paint
- Hot Glue Gun (low temp)
- Bottle Christmas Trees
- Other décor (optional)
How to make a DIY farmhouse ornament:
First I set up my Medium HomeRight Spray Shelter. I typically use a disposable tarp in my spray shelter when painting, but for some reason, I forgot to snag one, so I got creative and used an opened brown paper bag instead. It isn't pretty, but it totally gets the job done and is a free option. (Yay for free!)
Using a spray shelter for painting projects is so wonderful because:
- it pops up super fast
- it keeps projects safe from wind
- it keeps projects safe from dust
- it keeps projects safe from gentle rain
- when I am done painting, it folds up like a car shade and is super easy to store
After I set my spray shelter up, I laid the embroidery hoops down on the paper bag.
Then I poured my black paint into my HomeRight Super Finish Max Paint Sprayer with the green tip on it.
PRO TIP: stir and strain your paint before pouring it into your paint sprayer container.
After my paint sprayer was prepared, I simply sprayed my embroidery hoops. This was insanely simple and took just a few minutes to spray all of the hoops, front and back.
I liked the look of these hoops with only one coat of paint, but you can do two coats if you prefer. Don't forget to paint both sides.
Once these hoops were completely dry, I was ready to add decorations to them.
I used my low-temp hot glue gun and added berries to the hoop along the bottom, going up both sides.
Then I added a bottle brush tree in the center.
I had a few other things I could have added to these like bottle brush wreaths and smaller trees, but I really loved the simplicity and beauty of these ornaments with only the berries and one large tree in the middle. But feel free to make these your own any way you like.
I added cute ribbon on top and these ornaments were complete!
I think they look absolutely adorable!
And they look cute on my tree too!
