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.

- 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!
