Make a Christmas List Ornament!

Sharing is caring!

Another ornament?  Yep!  This one is a super easy Christmas List ornament tutorial, the one I made for Craft Snob.

 I was inspired by this from Pinterest pic.

Super cute right?  Here’s mine:

Normally I put my own twist on my Pinterest-inspired projects, but this one didn’t have too much room for variation.  I loved the red and everything.  But what I did to make it personal was to make one for each member of my family and write on the list the things they want for Christmas this year!

Here’s what you need to start:

  • Wooden spools (I bought at Hobby Lobby, they were pretty cheap.)
  • Red Paint –or whatever color you choose.  I used Red by Deco Art (Great paint products!)
  • Paint brush
  • Not shown is thin ribbon, white cardstock, rubber bands and hot glue.  I also just used a Sharpie but it’s better if you have a fine tipped black ink pen.  (What can I say, I’m low on scrapbooking supplies.  I don’t scrapbook.)

First you paint the spools red. (Like you need a picture of this…)

Then you cut out strips of cardstock the same width as the inside of the spool and about 10 inches long.  You can trim it later if you want.  I used hot glue to glue one end of the cardstock to the spool, just a thin strip of glue.  Then I wrapped it around, leaving a good size tail and secured it with another strip of hot glue and then with a rubber band.  After that I wrote out the list in pencil and went over it in marker.  It was tricky to write nicely so I went for a child’s handwriting look, which I wanted anyway!

Here’s where you can add a tag for whosever list it is or just write it at the top of the list.  After this step you can just thread the thin ribbon through the middle of the spool and tie it together.  Then take off the rubber band and done!  Once you hang it on the tree you will realize it doesn’t need anymore embellishment.  (This one below is my hubby’s Christmas list)

I really love these ornaments.  They were so easy to make so and so personal.  And looking back you can remember what you or your kids wanted for Christmas that year!  These would also make a great craft activity for church or youth groups.  The spools and paint are pretty inexpensive.  And it would be a great family night activity to prepare for Christmas–(and you can peek around at everyone’s lists and get ideas!)

Even when a company may lose 15% of their profit by customers using coupons to by their items, the quantity of new customers drawn to those reductions makes up for the loss.
