I wanted to share a quick DIY Christmas gift with you today! I try to make a few of these monogrammed ornaments for gifts every Christmas, as they are so inexpensive and simple to make.
I used brown crinkle cut filling from the dollar store to put inside the ornaments. For the ribbon, I found some festive patterns in the Target dollar section, and I tied it to the top of each ornament. As far as the personalization goes, you can do this numerous ways. I have painted the letters on before, but I prefer using vinyl cutouts. This is the vinyl I like to use. This year I decided to do last name initials instead of the full out monogram. I used my Cri-Cut machine to cut out the letters then I simply stuck the vinyl letter onto the ornament, making sure it is centered. And, that is it! My Cricut is a super old model, but if I bought a newer one, I would get this one: Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine. One of my friends has this one and she loves it. It has some awesome features that I wish my older model had. Not only can these be used as ornaments, but you can also use them for vase fillers. Here, my boys helped me stuff rafia, twine, and rope into the ornaments, and I combined them with some Dollar Tree fake berries, DIY burlap covered balls, and pinecones (in an old freezer basket) for a display in my dining room.
