We are the Shanty Sisters from Shanty-2-Chic.com! We are so excited that Jen asked us to come share a fun Christmas project with you all! Here is what we came up with!
A very easy, thrifty and CUTE, wooden Christmas ornament
It’s perfect to hang from the tree, a door knob or even a fun teacher’s gift!
Here’s how you can make your own!
While the stain dries, we have time to pretty up the chipboard letters!
I chose to use the word ‘JOY’ for my ornament and wanted a letter on each side of every cube, so… you see above I have 4 j’s, o’s and y’s. I sprayed 2 coats of glitter making sure to let each coat dry before the next.
While the glitter is drying, you can drill holes into the blocks. I used 4-ply jute (also available at Hobby Lobby) and matched a drill-bit to the thickness.
Using my 18-Volt Ryobi drill, I pre-drilled a hole in each block, from top to bottom (don’t worry, no granite was hurt in this process)
Our letters are now dry so, flip them over and squeeze a little hot glue on the back and place one letter on each side of each cube.
Starting with the last letter (y), thread the jute through each cube. It helps to twist as you thread to keep the jute from unraveling
I hope you all love it as much as we do Thanks so much again for letting us come share Jen!
