Good morning! I have an exciting post today! I am taking part in MyPinterventures Ornament Exchange! (Thanks Erlene!) I believe this is the 4th year I have participated in the exchange and it’s fun to see what all the other bloggers come up with for their ornaments and see what your partner made for you!
I was partnered with Michelle from Coastal Bohemian. Of course, coastal always works for me! I picked up the driftwood from the beach this past summer and I bought the small seashells ($2.99) and charms ($1.99) from Michaels. I already had the pretty string from another project. Other than those pieces, I just needed my drill and my hot glue gun.
I started out by drilling a hole in the top of each piece of driftwood, so there would be a place for the string. This was pretty easy since the wood is so soft.
I picked which charms I wanted to use and snipped off the ring at the top with wire cutters. I used hot glue to attach it to the driftwood.
I played around with different placement of the seashells, trying out different colors and sizes. Once I was happy with it, I hot glued them into place.
The last step was to tie a piece of string through the hole so it could hang from the tree.
They turned out so pretty! I’m going to make a couple of extra for my own tree too.
I hope Michelle enjoys hanging these on her tree as much as I enjoyed making them.
The pretty colors and seashells immediately take me back to the beach.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you take time to go visit the other bloggers and see their ornaments too! If you would like to add your ornament how-to to the link party, go here.
