Hey what’s up you guys? My name is Emily
and in this video I’m going to show you how to make over twenty DIY Christmas ornaments.
In the comments down below let me know what you think about these
ornaments and which one is your favorite. If you like this video give this video a thumbs
up and subscribe to see more videos like this. Let’s get on with the video! The first ornament I’m going to show
you how to make is a sleigh ornament. You need about seven Popsicle sticks and
you need to paint five of them one color for the top of the sleigh and two of them for the runner
on the bottom part of the sleigh another color. Then you want to take a Popsicle
stick and cut it down to the same size as the top part of
the sleigh with wire cutters. Then glue it onto the back of
the sticks with a glue gun. Put some glue onto the edge of
the Popsicle stick you just cut and place one of the sticks for
the runners into the glue. Then do it again on the other side. You can put glue on the sides of the
runners to help them keep it in place. Take a piece of string and tie a loop. Then glue it
to the bottom part of the sleigh with a glue gun. If you want you can glue a jewel or
something else on the top of the sleigh. For this sock ornament, you want to
start off by drawing and cutting out a sock out of red fleece fabric
or you could use another color. After cutting it out, trace the top part of the sock
onto white fabric and cut out a rectangle. Then glue the white rectangle onto the sock and
after that glue a jewel onto the white rectangle. The last thing you have to do is
tie a loop with a piece of string and glue it to the back of
the sock with a glue gun. What you will need to make these salt dough
ornaments is a bowl, a spoon, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of water, parchment paper,
a rolling pin, a baking pan, a straw, and cookie cutters. To make the dough, start off by putting the flour, the salt,
and the water into the bowl and stir until combined. Then take the dough out of
the bowl and roll it until it’s completely combined and in a
ball. Then roll it out with a rolling pin. Now you can place the cookie cutters into the
dough and make many different designs. You can put a smaller shape inside the bigger
shapes and take the smaller shapes out to have a ornament with a hole that could be in a shape
of something like a moon or a star in the middle. Remove the dough around the
ornaments and roll the extra dough into a ball and roll it out again
and make more shapes Then you want to move the
ornaments onto a pan. If you made some with shapes
cut out in the middle, take a spatula and slowly move
the ornament onto a spatula. Then take a straw and put it into the dough so there
can be a string so the ornament can hang on a tree. You can also use a toothpick for the smaller ornaments
but make sure you make a big enough hole. When you are done with the ornaments put them in the
oven at 200°F for 1-3 hours or until they are all hard. Now you can draw and
paint your ornaments. I left some of them white because
they look like snowballs. When the paint is wet you
can sprinkle on glitter. When they all of them dry, you can put string
or twine through the holes and tie a loop. For the ornaments with smaller
holes you can put a toothpick through the hole to push out small pieces
out of the way that are blocking the hole. Depending on the size and the
shape of your ornaments you can only make a couple of
ornaments or you can make a lot of them. For this snowflake ornament, paint five
Popsicle sticks white or another color. When the Popsicle sticks are dry, take the
Popsicle stick that will be in the back and put a drop of glue with the
glue gun in the middle of the stick. Then put the second stick on top of that
one. You should have a “X” shape now. Then take the third stick and glue
it again to the middle but at a angle on the second Popsicle stick
and not the same as the first stick. Do the same thing to the next
stick and the last stick. If you want you can glue a button or
something else in the middle of the stick. Then tie a loop with string and glue it
to the top of the back snowflake. For this pinecone ornament, you want to
paint the pinecone white or another color and while it’s still wet sprinkle some glitter
onto the pinecone and wait for it to dry. Next you can tie a loop with a piece of twine
or string and glue it the top of the pinecone. Then you can tie a bow and glue it
over where the twine or string is. For this picture ornament, you want to
print out any picture onto photo paper. You can trim the picture and
leave a border if you want to. Then punch a hole onto
the top of the picture and then tie some ribbon into a loop
through the hole on the picture. All you have to do is take a real candy cane and tie
a loop with some string onto the candy cane. If you want you can eat the candy canes off
the tree or you guests can eat them off the tree. All you have to do for these wood slice ornaments, is cut
some wood into slices or buy pre cut slices of wood. Then put a hole into it near the top with a drill
and after that you want to sand the wood slices. Then you can draw and paint in
a design on the wood slices. When your wood slices are dry, take some
twine and tie a loop through the hole so the ornaments can
be hung on the tree. For this DIY, you use perler beads and
make any shape you want on a peg board. I used a butterfly pegboard and used some pink
clear beads to add some color to the butterfly. The clear beads will show light that’s behind them
and make sure you leave one peg with no bead. When your done with your design, put parchment paper
over it and iron it until the beads are connected. Make sure you check iron is around medium heat before
you iron your beads so you don’t over melt the beads. Tie a loop through that you left
open with a piece of string. I love how cute this butterfly came out!
I love how the wings have faces on it. For this Christmas tree, you want to take a
Popsicle stick and cut off the rounded edges with wire cutters and then sand
the edges until they are smooth. Then take another Popsicle stick and mark
off how big the first Popsicle stick was and make the second stick smaller. Take another Popsicle stick and cut
off a tiny bit off of the stick off and sand it down until it’s
smooth on the ends of the stick. Then continue this until you have
five trimmed Popsicle sticks. Then paint the five Popsicle
sticks that were cut any color and they will be the tree’s branches and
paint the sixth stick a different color. Now you can glue all of the cut sticks, starting
from the biggest stick to the smallest stick, onto the sixth stick with a glue gun and make sure
you leave a some room between each stick. If you want you can glue on some jewels or
something else onto the tree with a glue gun. When your done with your tree, tie a loop with a piece
of string and glue it to the top of back of the tree. The first thing you have to do for this
banner ornament is paint a stick any color. Then you can draw a banner onto
fabric, cut it out with scissors, and make sure it can fit onto
the stick with the string. After you cut the banner out, you
can draw and paint in your design. When your banner is dry, flip it over and put your
stick onto the banner about 1/2 inch from the top. Then put some glue below the stick and wrap
the fabric from the top around the stick. When your done doing that,
tie one piece of string on both sides of the stick and
then the banner will be finished. First you want to take the lid and trace around it onto
some cardstock or scrapbook paper and cut it out. Then you can put the piece of the
paper into the cover that goes on top of the lid to help with keeping it in the open area of the
cover and draw and paint in your design on the circle. You can draw anything you want.
I drew a reindeer silhouette. Tie a loop with string on the lids cover and
if you want you can make another circle to cover up the back and glue
it in with the glue gun. If you are making a reindeer you can can glue
on a red pom pom for the nose to make Rudolph. Then you can put some glue on top of the string on
the lid that’s above your design and put a bow there. Something that you can do is put glue on
the middle of the bow and put a jewel there. For this glitter reindeer ornament,
you first want to draw and cut out a reindeer head or body out
of a piece of cardboard. Then paint the cardboard white or a
similar color to the glitter you are using. When the paint is dry, cover the
reindeer with Mod Podge with a paintbrush and sprinkle the reindeer
with glitter until it’s covered. When it’s dry, shake off the
extra glitter off the reindeer. Then tie a loop with string and glue it to
the back of the reindeer with a glue gun. If you want you can add a red
pom pom to the front of the reindeer for a nose to make Rudolph by
gluing it on with a glue gun. What you will need to make these twine ball
ornaments is glue, water, balloons, twine or yarn, a plastic spoon, paper plate,
glitter, a hanger, and clothes pins. First you want to blow up some balloons. Then you want to put some
glue and water onto the plate. I don’t have any measurements but just take a guess
and if the glue is too watery add some more glue. When you are done mixing, put the
twine or the yarn into the glue mixture. You can use your hands or the plastic spoon to
put the twine or the yarn into the glue mixture. Let it set for a minute in the glue. Then wrap the twine or the yarn
around the balloon multiple times. The more times you wrap the balloon
the more structure the twine ball has. While the glue is still wet sprinkle
some glitter all over the twine or yarn. Then stick the balloon onto the hanger with the
clothespins and wait for it to dry overnight. Put some paper under these
because they will drip. When it’s dry, cut a hole into the balloon and
rip the balloon out slowly and carefully. You can either put these in a bowl
or you can hang them on a tree by tying a loop with another piece
of twine or yarn onto the ball. For this embroidery hoop ornament you will need
to cut out a piece of fabric bigger than the hoop. I used a small embroidery hoop but
you can use whatever size you want. Then you want to draw
and paint in your design. I decided to make a
reindeer silhouette. When the paint is dry, put the
fabric into the embroidery hoop. Then cut the extra fabric off but
make sure you don’t cut too much because the fabric might not
stay in the embroidery hoop. If you are making, Rudolph glue on a red pom
pom with a glue gun where the nose will be. The last thing you have to do is tie a loop with some
string onto the metal part of the embroidery hoop. For the stem of this Christmas tree, you want
to cut off a small part of a Popsicle stick with wire cutters and then sand
the sides down until it’s smooth. Then you want to paint three uncut Popsicle sticks
one color and the stem another color. When the sticks are dry, glue the stem onto the Popsicle
stick that will be the bottom of the tree with a glue gun. Then glue the other two Popsicles together
with the bottom part of tree into a triangle. When you’re done gluing the tree
together, tie a loop with a piece of string and glue it to the back
of the top of the tree. If you want you can glue jewels or whatever
you would like onto the tree with a glue gun. All you have to do for these cookie cutter ornaments is
tie a loop with a piece of string onto the cookie cutters. For this cute wreath, start off by putting a drop
of glue onto the inside of a lid with a glue gun and put the end of a
piece of ribbon on it. Then start wrapping the
ribbon around the lid. To make things easier while wrapping the ribbon,
make sure the ribbon has been wrapped tightly on the lid and every so
often put some glue on to the lid and continue with wrapping
the ribbon onto the lid. When you got the lid completely
wrapped with ribbon, cut off the extra ribbon and glue
the end of the ribbon to the lid. Then tie a loop with some
ribbon and tie it to the lid. After that’s done, tie a bow with a different color of ribbon and glue it to the lid with a glue gun. Then put some glue on the middle
of the bow and glue on a jewel. For these ornaments, you want to take one Popsicle
stick and measure how big you want it to be and cut it down with wire cutters.
Make as many as you need. Since I was making a
hexagon I needed six pieces. Shapes that you can do
are a triangle or a square. Then paint all of the pieces. When all of the pieces are dry, glue them together
into the shape you are doing with a glue gun. When your done gluing the sticks
together, put two drops of glue onto the stick that will be on top and take one piece
of string and put each end into each drop of glue. Then you can trace the shape
onto your picture and cut it out. Make sure it fits before gluing the picture on and
then glue the picture onto the shape with a glue gun. For this last DIY, you need to make a
template of a ornament and cut it out. Then trace it onto a piece of scrapbook paper
or cardstock paper and cut the ornament out. Then you can paint any design
you want onto your ornaments. When they are dry, tie a loop
with twine or string and glue it to the back of the top
of the ornaments with a glue gun. If you want you can glue on some jewels
onto the ornaments with a glue gun. and that’s it for this video!
