Its no surprise that DIY Christmas ornaments are very popular. They make fun easy craft projects and you can have fun creating them. Often they don’t take lots of time and like the one I am sharing they are often easy and inexpensive to create. My Farmhouse style ornaments start when I found plain all wood art frames at the dollar store. No building and the frame comes with the art backing. I loved that idea and scooped up several of them.


The supplies and directions for this Christmas craft are simple. Kids can make them using craft paint and craft glue instead of the spray on adhesive.

Three different printables and a wood frame. Supplies for making a DIY Christmas Ornament

8 by 8 inch wood frames (dollar store)

Black or White Paint

Dollar store twine

Free neutral Farmhouse Printables

White tissue paper and sparkles (optional)

Spray on adhesive


Start by painting the outside frame and the back of the frame with two coats of paint.

Print out the 6 different printables and carefully cut out the square prints you like.

Optional Tissue Paper and Sparkle Layer

In the gift stores this year I noticed several new style of purchased Christmas wall signs. Instead of having a painted background they have this layered paper look. Its softer and I like the look so I decided to create the look in a DIY version. It makes the printable lighter and softer looking, and I love it that way. When making the ornament check out to see which version you prefer, if you don’t like the soft look skip the tissue paper.

If using the tissue paper layer, iron one piece of paper flat to remove the wrinkles.

Lightly spray adhesive to the front of the paper prints. Carefully layer a piece of tissue paper over top while avoiding wrinkles. Flatten the tissue by apply light pressure from the center to the outside of the print.

Once glued trim off the excess tissue paper leaving the edges as straight as possible.

If you want to add sprinkles, spray a second light application of adhesive, sprinkle with the sparkles, let dry.

Adhering Printable to Frame

Before attaching the printable permanently test to check for fit. Dollar store frames are perfect and oh my either is my cutting. If the picture doesn’t fit properly trim you picture. If its cut too small and part of the plain background shows fix it by painting the backing with a little bit of the frame paint.

Adding the Twine Hangers

You can glue the twine to the top of the frames, or you can drill the frame and thread the twine through.

Adding twine to handmade Christmas ornaments with free printables and black wood frames.

Using a drill make two small holes on top of the frame an inch from the outer edge. Cut two pieces of twine for each ornament. Tie a knot in one end. Thread the twine first through a large eyed needle and then through the frame. Tie the two ends together in a pretty bow and hang on the tree.
