Rustic Driftwood Christmas Ornaments

Welcome to Homeroad!

If you love this project you may want to 
follow me on Facebook for links to more
rustic and repurposed projects!

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


I loved the ornaments Holly
from Down to Earth Style made last year...


At first I tried to find vinyl Christmas words online 
to use for my project...

But in the end I decided to hand paint mine.  
I used scraps of driftwood I found on the beach
last summer.


I gave them a quick coat of white chalk paint...


and hand painted Christmas words with 
a paint stick... I gave them a quick sanding to give them 
a 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 
rusty mini clothespin.






I just loved Holly's recycled ornaments...

  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!
