Here's what I did this month:
How did I do it?
I bought the wooden ornament bases and floral picks from the Dollar Tree. I had to sand the edges because they were a little rough otherwise not a bad deal for a buck!
I watched a YouTube video on how to paint the buffalo check and used white, soft gray, granite gray and black. (Do a search...there are plenty out there!) Mine are a little distressed since I didn't wait for the paint to completely dry before placing the painters tape. But I do like the look!
I used my Cricut to cut Merry Christmas with vinyl which I downloaded from lovesvg.
Then I added the ribbon, greenery and jingle bells to the top of the ornaments to finish them off. This was actually a quick and easy project if you have the right tools. I made one for our door and two more that I'm gifting to both my DILs' families.
Here are the other two I made:
