Red and White Christmas Ornaments to Knit
Try it – Like it – Create it 

I want to share a rustic Christmas DIY craft idea that will look adorable in your home!

I love crafts, but I’m not very good at them. I would be embarrassed to try to estimate how much money I’ve wasted, buying craft supplies for projects that just didn’t work out the way I thought they would.

Have you ever been in that situation? 


This project, however, is SO easy; I had the idea after looking at the popular hanging vases.

Rustic Christmas DIY Process:

Take a wood slab and drill three equidistant holes.

Using twine or hemp cord, tie three identical, unbreakable Christmas ornaments from those holes.

For the hanger, drill two more holes on the upper ends of the wood slab and loop more twine or hemp cord.


Rustic Christmas DIY

I love easy DIY projects where I feel like I’ve accomplished something huge.

Enjoy this new addition to your festive holiday home!
