A favorite Christmas décor is the beautiful rustic look using lots of natural elements and making many of the decorations and ornaments yourselves.

This makes for a wonderful way to spend the day together as a family making ornaments and decorating your home.

Rustic Christmas Ornaments

Making rustic Christmas ornaments is always a favorite way to spend time together around the holidays.

One favorite ornament to make that is very versatile is to use discs cut from a tree branch that is a few inches in diameter.

Drill a small hole near one edge and string a ribbon through the hole. Tie a knot or bow in the ribbon for an easy way to hang your ornament with no hook needed once it is decorated.

Decorations for your wooden discs can be anything you like! A woodburning tool is a great way to make pictures, designs or write words on your ornaments.

If you don’t have a woodburning tool, paint or even a marker can also be used to decorate your ornaments and the possibilities for designs are only limited by your imagination!

A wooden disc can also make a simple yet beautiful rustic candle plate! Write one letter per wooden disc and hang the discs of wood from a doorway, railing or mantle to spell out a favorite Christmas saying or phrase.
