I wanted to share a simple DIY Christmas project I did to elevate my Christmas tree. These DIY letter ornaments are super simple and inexpensive to make. They add a customized look and would be amazing on a tree, stockings, mantle, or even tied onto gifts. These are SO easy and took me probably 10 minutes! Crafts like these are my favorite because I know going into it that the project is going to fairly quick and almost foolproof. Sometimes you just need a win, am I right?
Here is the quick rundown of what I did. First, grab the letters that you need. The size will vary based on what you are using them for. I used 6″ MDF letters that cost me $2. Use wood or MDF as they are easier to paint and dry faster.

Next just paint them whatever you want, I used gold leaf paint but you could use chalk paint, acrylic paint or spray paint just whatever you have on hand. you can also add glitter or even distress them depending on the look you are wanting to achieve. The possibilities are endless.
After they have dried use a ribbon to add a bow. You can make a bow that has a loop to hang (that’s what I did) or you can make a bow and hot glue it to the letter and then add a twine or ribbon loop to hang it from.
That’s it. Super simple but gives your decor a more polished and custom look. If you want more DIY Christmas ideas to check out 15 Beautiful Christmas Crafts. I’ve rounded up some show-stoppers over there. Until next time friends!
