DIY Distressed Christmas Snowflake Ornaments

Tuesday was a craft day for me and it was so relieving.
I used to be so much into crafting and then I lost touch from it for a while.
It feels so good to be back into it, especially around the holidays.

I took a trip to Hobby Lobby with a really good friend of mine Crystal, from Hall Around Texas, to grab a few craft items and exchange some items that we have coming up on Friday, 11/22, for a GIVEAWAY over on our target page (follow us here). It was much needed to spend a little time with her!

I ended up grabbing a few items to make some ornaments from the Christmas craft section.

I grabbed a pack of wooden snowflake ornaments and 4 sheets of scrapbook paper.

The first thing that I started with is tracing the snowflake pattern on to the back of each scrapbook paper and cutting out that pattern.

Once I cut out the patterns, I started coating a wooden ornament with a thin layer of Mod Podge and then placed the cut out scrapbook pattern on top of the snowflake. You will want to place another thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the scrapbook paper. You will let that completely dry before doing this next step.

Once the Mod Podge completely dried, I took a piece of sand paper to distress the edges of the snowflakes. When I got the distressed look that I liked I finished the ornament off with one more coat of Mod Podge.

I added a piece of jute twine to hang them. The snowflakes did come with a string for each ornament but I liked the twine look better.

This was such a fun and easy DIY project to get you in the Christmas spirit.
I love the way they turned out, and I hope you do too!
