Crafty Christmas Ornaments

We have been feverishly crafting at the Howard’s for the Holiday Home Tour next week. The kids have been working on these easy handpainted Christmas ornaments made from cork coasters just like the ones we made last week. You can see the tutorial of the Coaster Ornaments here.  You could also use cardboard, bristol board or clay. We had these cork coasters with a logo on the back and thought they were great to re-purpose.

They were first painted in a solid colour. We kept with the red, white and bright green colours that I am carrying through the House Tour. Coloured dots were dabbed on and then they were hole punched and a cute ribbon was tied through.

I have an 8 foot Christmas tree to fill so we crafted many different styles in the same colour variations. They are all waiting in a basket to take over to the house, I can’t wait to see how the decorated tree turns out.

  3. Hi Bonnie and Trish! Thank you for hosting your link party. It is such a great way for new bloggers like myself to show some of our work.

  4. I love how something so simple can be so pretty & cheerful with a good paint job & colorful ribbon. We have a Jesus birthday party every Christmas and make ornaments together with our friends. This one would be great for all the little hands that’ll likely visit this year. Yours are lovely!
