Hey guys!  I can’t believe we are already to day 7 of our 12 Days of Christmas series!  If you want to keep up with our projects, follow us on Instagram and Facebook!12DaysCOUNTER7For day 7, I picked a super easy and inexpensive knock-off ornament.  I was inspired by some super cute ornaments in a Pottery Barn magazine!

PotteryBarn-Inspired-OrnamentThese are a great craft to do with the kiddos!!

chipboard-lettersI started with a few Chipboard pieces from Hobby Lobby.  When they are on sale, the peace signs are about $.50 and the alphabet set is about $3!

Rust-oleum-Glitter-Spray-PaintI spray painted 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Gold Glitter spray paint all over the chipboard pieces.

attach-twine-for-hangingOnce they were dry, I just added twine to hang them.  The piece signs are a thicker chipboard so, I just flipped them over and used my staple gun to staple a piece of twine to the back, forming a loop.

punch-hole-with-screwdriverFor the thin chipboard letters, I used a small screw driver to punch a hole through them.  I decided not to use a hole punch because I didn’t want a large hole in the letters.

tie-knot-in-twineI just thread a piece of 3 ply jute through the hole and made a knot at the top!

DIY-PotteryBarn-OrnamentI found these super cute ornament hangers at Hobby Lobby too!  A pack was only about $2!!!  I picked all of my family initials from the chipboard pack to hang!
