DIY Ornaments for My Christmas Tree!

Hey friends!

Today, I am going to share some information about the ornaments on my Christmas tree that I got at JOANN.  

I started with purchasing some Woodland Lodge boxed ornaments at JOANN.  I particularly loved this set of red, black, gray, and wooden snowflake ornaments. 

They look so pretty on my flocked tree!

I bought some wooden “Merry Christmas” ornaments and painted them black with some craft paint.

 I couldn’t find my exact wood ornament online, but THIS ONE is similar and would look great painted black.


I had the most fun making these twine ornaments.  

I bought some clear glass ornaments and some twine to make them.  

I simply used a hot glue gun and glue sticks to attach the jute to the top of the ornament. 

Then I continued to wrap the ornament with twine and attach it with hot glue until I got to the bottom of the ornament.  

I love the way they look on my tree.  They add such a subtle, natural element. 

I also found these cute ornament decals at JOANN and added them to some clear plastic ornaments.


It is SO EASY to apply these decals!  It literally took seconds.

Then I added some faux foam snowballs inside the ornament to give it the look of a snow globe.

I bought several of these Woodland Lodge Pinecone Ornament at JOANN.



I found this cute Woodland Lodge Branch Star Ornament at JOANN and decided to use it as the star on top of my tree!  

JOANN has so many beautiful decor pieces in their store!  If you haven’t been there in a while, you might be surprised at what you find!  I fell in love with these adorable snowflake pillows.

I bought two and put them in the chairs on each side of my tree.

I also found some Christmas decor at JOANN for the table behind my chair.  The hanging float frame is from JOANN, as well as the metal JOY garland.

I attached a black and white buffalo check bow to my lamp for some more color. 

I’m very pleased with how my tree turned out this year.  It has a simple, woodsy feel about it, and I love enjoying the glow of it in our family room. 

If you are interested in any of the products from JOANN that I mentioned in my post above, you can find them below as well.

  1. Beautiful! I also loved your post about the re-purposed mantle decorations. I love shopping at thrift stores so I think it would be great to see a post about some re-purposed items that you might find at places like that. It would be fun to see a tree decorated from thrift store finds as well….

    1. Thank you, Angela! I love to thrift too, and used to share a lot more thrifted finds in my earlier blogging years. I need to do that more often! Have a blessed new year!

  2. Such a pretty tree, and what great ideas! These would be an easier way to update a tree without spending a small fortune. The bows aren’t in my local store, and can’t be shipped and I’m sad bc I would use those beyond Christmas. Oh well. Thank you for sharing your great craftiness! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you, Sharon! I’m sorry the bows weren’t available online. :(. They would definitely be able to be used year round. Hope you had a merry Christmas! Wishing you a blessed new year!

  3. What a beautiful look you pulled together around your tree! I love the natural feel.
    Did you paint the float picture frame? I can’t tell from the lighting. Thanks.

    1. Never mind my question. I reread your post and see that it came from JoAnn’s also. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Your posts are a blessing to me in North Carolina!

  4. Wow, I love your Christmas tree! It’s so big, bright, and beautiful. The twine ornaments are very creative and seem simple to make. I reuse the same ornaments every year, but perhaps I should try something different this year!
