Rustic Driftwood Christmas Ornaments

6:00:00 AM

It's time to start thinking about Christmas...



My first thought was to find vinyl Christmas words online 
to use for my project.

But in the end I decided to hand paint them.  

I used scraps of driftwood I found on the beach. I just love hunting for driftwood scraps on the beach.


I gave them a quick coat of white spray paint then hand painted Christmas words with a paint stick.

I gave them a quick sanding to give them a distressed, rustic look.

I drilled holes in the corners of each block and
wrapped waxed twine around the ends and through the holes of each block. 


I finished some off with a flannel ribbon and a DIY rusty mini clothespin.

  1. Susan those are perfect. I love ornaments as a grouping, lots of the same style but each slightly different. And I applaud your 'using what you have/found' mentality, so much can be made of stuff we already have in our homes if you put your mind to it!
