I think I can say that part of my style is rustic. I love a simple piece that has enough charm on its own that it can stand alone or easily be paired with other accents without being too much. From decorating my home, to sprucing for the seasons and the holidays, rustic flair is always popping up somewhere.
This year when deciding what look I wanted for our Christmas tree, I knew I wanted a combination of sophistication and rustic. Cue the mercury glass ornaments as the key players in the Christmas tree decorating game, followed up with wooden accents to bring the tree full circle. Because I'm a firm believer that you should never decorate without variety and texture. I love the turnout of sleek mercury glass with wooden, painted reindeer. To bring in a bit more of the rustic look I decided a homemade ornament would be the way to go!
And that's how this snow-woman ornament came to be. With logs found on my parents' property, some scrap fabric from pillow covers I made, and the contents of my paint box, I easily put together this darling snow gal to adorn my tree. The best part, it cost me nothing!
Husband cut the various logs into 1/4" discs for me for the tier look, and I hot glued each disc to one another. Then I painted on the features, hot glued the scarf, and attached a hook (not pictured) with hot glue to finalize this ornament. I love that there are so many variations you could make with the basic snowman shape, giving multiples of this ornament a variety of looks. No two snowflakes are the same, so why should snow people be?!
I love the sweetness it added to the tree. Making the ornament was a breeze too, and took no time at all! What's your favorite ornament DIY?? Link-up below with Rachel and I to share yours! Just grab the button and link back to us! Happy crafting!
