Rustic wood snowflake ornament DIY

We have a tradition in our family where we make a new Christmas ornament each year.

My kids love to remember each ornament as they haphazardly put them up on the tree. 

This year, we had a fabulous winter themed Vacation Bible School (in the hot California summer) where we taught the kids how to make these terrific and easy wood snowflake ornaments.

The whole thing is pretty simple really.

We cut the stencils into individual snowflakes to make it easier for the kids to use.

Place the stencil on the wood round.

Use the make-up sponge to dab the paint. Remove the stencil.

Before the paint dries, shake the glitter on it. You can use all kinds of glitter colors. We chose white, pink and blue to give the kids a choice. These salt shakers were perfect to shake the glitter.

Let dry.

Do the same to the other side if you wish.

Spray a clear wood finish and let dry.

Add the string and enjoy!

These rustic wood snowflake ornaments make quick and beautiful little gifts for your guests or tags for presents too!

Pin it for later!

    These wood slices are some of my favorites! I might need to add a chop saw to my wish list! What a great idea for place cards, favors, ornaments, and gift tags! So so fun. The rustic look works perfectly with my own home decor….better get moving.
