Welcome to the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home!
Rustic Farmhouse Wooden Christmas Ornaments
I have been SO totally lucky to be partnered with one of the very first people I met when I started this blogging journey and now has blossomed into a lovely friendship! Katrin from Kreativ K is one of the sweetest gals and if you haven’t been over to her blog, be prepared to be there for a while. Katrin has a beautiful blog full to the brim of Nordic Farmhouse projects that will keep you nice and busy!
So grab yourself a mug of your favourite drink, settle in and pop on over and say hi and see the most beautiful Vintage Farmhouse Baking Tin Ornaments that she made me.

Let’s get making some fun Rustic Farmhouse Wooden Christmas Ornaments
*This post contains affiliate links. Which means I may receive a very small commission to go towards my blog maintenance. It does NOT result in additional charges to you or cost you anything extra. See here for my full disclosure*
- Wooden Tags – I have had these tags in my craft stash for quite a while but I found some cool wooden Christmas bauble tags over on Amazon that will surely do the trick.
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Picket Fence
- Transfer Paper
- Liner Brush
- Americana Lamp Black Paint
- 120 grit Sanding Block
- A print out in your favourite font of “peace, merry, jungle, joy, noel” – Make sure they fit onto your tags.
- Miss Mustard Seed – Beeswax
- Lace to embellish
Step 1 – Remove the wire from the tags. Then paint the wooden tags with a coat of Picket Fence. Let dry. Give them a light sand using your sanding block. Then using the transfer paper and stylus trace the words onto your tags. Grab your liner brush and black paint and start blocking in your words.
Step 2 – Sand back your tags to your liking. Then give them a nice wax to protect and give them a nice silky feel. Pop back in the wire into the holes. Attach some vintage lace and you’re done!
Now they are all ready for you to pop on your tree, use as present extras when your wrapping or even make a cute garland. The possibilities are endless!
Hope you enjoy all of the other wonderful handmade ornaments that my blogging pals have made!

So much inspiration, Sam, I really enjoyed it.
I’m so glad Amalia!! I haven’t had a chance to get around to everyone yet but can’t wait!!!
Sam that was so easy and the result is soooo pretty. And it is definitely Katrin’s style. All Nordic white! I will definitely have to try these!
Hope you have fun when you do Mary!! Let me know how you go!!
Katrin will love these, it’s so her style and there must be some connection between the two of you. You’ve both used a similar lace ribbon and have the same amazing touch when it comes to making things. It’s so cool
LOL!! You will spin out Michelle, even more, when you hear that I was going to use tart tins too!!! I couldn’t believe it when I opened my happy mail!!
I love your Christmas tags, Sam. They are so farmhouse charming. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful inspiration!
Thank you, Carolann!
Those would make cute name tags on presents too.
I love all the ideas I get from participating in the Ornament Exchange!!
Isn’t it just awesome Hil!!! I am still to get to everyone but I can’t wait until I do!!!
I love how these turned out! The addition of the lace adds great texture. This has been such a wonderful hop full of creative ideas!
