It’s the first Monday of the month and the ladies of The Global Styler are joining up again to bring you another globally inspired project. Today, we are sharing global style diy ornaments! What’s even more exciting is that we will be sharing our Christmas trees decorated with these DIY ornaments this week. You can see my DIY tribal driftwood ornaments at 7am EST today when I share my eclectic global bohemian Christmas tree as part of the annual My Home Style Blog Hop: Christmas Tree edition. Be sure to check out the ornament ideas shared by Kathy of Up To Date Interiors and Corinna of A Designer At Home after my DIY tribal driftwood ornament tutorial. Kathy will be sharing her Christmas tree today as well! You can see Corinna’s Christmas tree on Friday.
DIY Tribal Ornaments
These DIY driftwood ornaments are super easy to create. I used some driftwood pieces that I scored at Target. Believe it or not, these driftwood bits come as a box of vase filler! Shopping the vase filler aisle is a hidden gem friends. I get a box of several craft supply pieces for a reasonable price. I’ve used sea urchin vase fillers for projects too!
Simply use your paint pens to create tribal inspired patterns on each of the driftwood pieces. Google is a great source to search for tribal patterns if you need a bit of inspiration. These paint pens dry relatively quickly. I was able to hang the driftwood ornaments within 5 minutes of painting them. Use coordinating paint colors that match your other Christmas decor.
Once the driftwood is dry, use jute rope to create a loop to hang your new DIY tribal driftwood ornament. The jute rope adds to the ornament’s organic element perfectly. Match your driftwood ornament with other nature or organic inspired tree decor. I paired mine with a few different elements and you can see the full tree here.
