These are all so super simple and basic I thought I’d combine them all here in one post. (the more detailed ones are in separate posts)
Here’s what I started with…..(and some other random ornaments I got from the thrift store)
Now, I will tell you, I don’t have great pictures of the actual “doing” of most of these projects and that’s because I was racing to get done for my Holiday Home Tour.
BUT, I promise, they are all super simple or I wouldn’t even bother posting without a full pictured “how-to” post.
For the wreath I just used a hot glue gun to glue the ornaments around the sides (with bottoms down-hook side-) and filled in the rest. No rhyme or reason really.
Just where ever there were empty spots…I filled them in!
I chose random sizes, colors etc, as I went around. I don’t really think there is any way to really go wrong with this.
Window & Chair Decorations:
I started with this….
I cut a length of burlap to wrap around the chair and then tied it in a knot so I’d have a little length left on each side…like so….
Next I cut twine to loop the jingle bell and ornament through.
Then I hot glued a long length of twine to the center of the pine cone like this…..
I wrapped the pine cone around the middle of the knot in the chair and tied it. (hide the extra behind the knot in the burlap)
Then I took the jingle bell and ornament I had looped together and did the same with it, adjusting the length so they all staggered a bit.
I decided to add some white ribbon to dress it up a bit. I just wrapped it around the knot and tied the ribbon.
Did the same for the ones I did on my windows except no ribbon or burlap.
Easy Nautical & Pine Cone Ornaments:
I found the pine cones in the woods behind my house. Lots of them.
I sprayed them all lightly with white spray paint to give them a “snowy” look.
For the ornaments, I made a loop with the twine and knotted it as you see below. I used a hot glue gun to glue the knot to the center of the cone. And done.
For the seashells, starfish and sand dollars I did basically the same. Loop and knot. Hot glue to the back like so….
Which ended up looking like this from the front…..
Can not get any easier than that!
“Be Merry” Wall Hanging:
Here’s what I started with…..
I have no idea what kind they are but they were more flat-ish so I used them.
Red, sparkly letters I got at Michael’s….60% off. And pretty teal colored ribbon.
Hot glue the letter to the front of the shell as shown. (cut the strings off)
Then cut your length of ribbon (however far apart you want your letters to be)
Hot glue the shells/letters to the ribbon like below….
I folded over the top and bottom of the ribbon and hot glued it to itself so it would have a nice smooth edge.
Once I finished gluing the letters to the ribbon I glued the starfish to it. (top, middle and bottom)
And then I used these to put it up on the wall…..
Every single thing on this post. Promise! I completed all of it in one evening’s time.
Well, that could have been partly due to self induced stress and pressure to get it done. But you get the idea….easy stuff.
I hope you try one or two of these! If you do, please let me know how it goes.
And if you have any questions about any of it, feel free to ask in the comments section.
