Popping in today to share a couple of quick and easy DIY ornaments. I love all things botanical, so I wanted to try my hand at making these. These dried-flower Christmas ornaments turned out so pretty I think I will make more soon.

I made two types of dried flower ornaments. Some are in glass and another set is a bit more rustic. Let’s start with the glass ornaments.
This is such an easy DIY!
I chose these pretty teardrop-shaped glass ornaments, round ones would work too.
I am using little white Rhodanthe Daisies and some rust Bunny Tails with a touch of moss. You can use anything that will fit into the top of your ornament. These brown bunny tails were leftover from a Fall project.
While working, I found a glass to hold the ornament and began adding the dried florals and moss.
I used a skewer to push the flowers into the glass ornaments gently. Work slowly, and if your flowers shed some pieces turn the ornament upside down and gently shake it out. Once I was happy with the placement and amount of flowers I added, I painted the ornament caps with some rub and buff I had on hand leftover from a previous project.
I was looking for a minimal modern feel with these, so I didn’t add much.
How easy is this??
Next, I tied a gold velvet ribbon, and they were ready to hang.
This next set of DIY Christmas Ornaments is also easy to make.
The first step was to make little wreaths from the twine. I cut my grapevine to the size I wanted and wrapped them in floral wire to hold the circle shape.
Next, begin adding moss and dried flowers, and secure them with hot glue. Be careful with your fingers! 🙂 I used a skewer to hold the flowers and let the hot glue dry for a second or two.
I used whatever combinations of dried flowers I liked together and also added some star of anise (which smells amazing). The little stars look Christmasy to me.
If your moss gets out of control, just give it a little trim. Or leave it wild. The beauty of DIY means you make it how you like it!
Once completed, add ribbon or twine to hang.
I hope you are inspired to try your own DIY Dried Flower Christmas Ornaments. Let me know if you do, and I’d love to see them.
Until next time,
