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.

- Wood rounds with a small hole for hanging – 3-4 inches work great. If you have a chop saw you can make your own, if not, you can find them on Amazon.
- White craft paint
- Make-up sponge
- Snowflake stencils
- Clear wood finish spray
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.
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 are so beautiful! And, I love the sparkle you added to them!
Sparkle is a must for Christmas 🙂
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.
Chop saws are so much fun! All the wood tools in the garage are mine not my hubby’s 🙂
I have some wood logs at home and am loving this idea! 🙂
Go for it! You’ll have a bunch of ornaments to give out in no time!
