Create these easy DIY Scandinavian Wood Ornaments for a quick and personalized DIY hostess gift!
It’s a new Monday of the month and a brand new The Global Styler post! Each month, my global styling friends and I share a globally inspired diy project based on a theme. This month is all about DIY hostess gifts. Be sure to head over to each of our blogs at the end of this post for more DIY hostess gift ideas. I decided to go a bit Scandi and created a DIY Scandinavian inspired wood ornament. I love receiving ornaments as gifts, especially for Thanksgiving. It gives me time to incorporate them into my Christmas tree design. Personalize this DIY gift idea by monogramming them!
Scandinavian or Nordic inspired holiday decor tends to be on the neutral and simple side. Probably words you wouldn’t use to describe me, but these DIY ornaments allow the receiver to incorporate them into their tree very easily and regardless of their tree style. Plus, I love a hostess gift that you can make at the spur of the moment! Sometimes you just need a quick and easy gift. Am I right, or am I right?
DIY Wood Ornaments
To make these DIY Scandinavian wood ornaments, use faux mini succulents to create a monogram on a small wood slice. Adhere each little faux greenery with your glue gun and be sure to remove any glue strings. Once your monogram is dry and secure, drill a small hole at the top of the wood slice. Use jute rope or ribbon to make a loop for the ornament. Wrap your new DIY hostess gift with tissue paper or use my DIY painted gift box idea as gift wrap.
I suggest you make some extras, because you’ll want a set of your own after you make them. These easy to make DIY ornaments are also great as a kid’s craft! My kids and I have a tradition of making 1 DIY ornament each Christmas. It’s a fun tradition and they love to place all of their DIY christmas tree ornaments on the tree each year. We have even gifted some DIY ornaments to grandparents too. So many ways to use these simple Scandinavian ornaments.
