#8 - Old Board Ornaments

12 Days of Homemade Ornaments

Old Board Ornaments...

 I made these ornaments during the summer of 2013. I didn't have much Christmas stash left to choose from. BUT, I love the challenge of making something when you have next to nothing....

 For this project you will need: Old boards, fabrics and embellishments. Anything you can find really.

 And see what YOU can come up with. I made these literally scraping the bottom of my craft barrel.

 Old Board Ornaments!

I hope you were inspired! Thank you so much for stopping by

  1. What a great idea! I need to pull out my stash of stuff and get busy. Find boards is the thing.

  2. I love this idea, Sherry! I think I will make some with my son - he would really enjoy it :) Hugs to you!

  3. These are such fun Sherry! Good way to use up some odds and ends too.

  4. Hi Sherry, these ornaments are fabulous. What a great idea to use scrap woods from other projects.
    You are on a roll and I am enjoying your series very much!!
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sherry, you did it again. These are so sweet.
    Is there anything that you cannot do?
    I absolutely love these posts that you have been doing.
    They are so inspiring and they set the mood for the start of the Christmas season.
    Thank you.
    Connie :)

  6. Awe these are so cute. I have cedar shingles from an old shed that would be perfect for this project! pinning!!!

  7. These are awesome! Don't you love taking something a lot of people would throw away and creating something so beautiful with it? Great use of those old boards. Oh how I wish I had more time at home to craft and create...:)

  8. SO cute Sherry--I swear each ornament gets more clever! Thanks for sharing them! Blessings, Cecilia

  9. Can't help but love all the button ones!

  10. I love these Sherry. I just took down a set of horizontal wooden blinds and have been looking for ideas to create with them. I do believe I can adapt them for these type of ornaments! Great idea! Blessings, Cindy

  11. You've taken something I would've tossed out and made some beautiful ornaments, what an amazing idea.

  12. very unique -- love all the ornament so far that you are sharing.. I was brainstorming and thinking this would be great painted a off white with some snow flakes painted or stenciled on.. I don't know just thinking out loud.. wink!

  13. have so many cute crafts!
