Santa Ornaments How-To Video
If you like to see crafts in action, you can see exactly how I made my version in the quick video below:
TIP: For the eyes, you can actually use the wrong side of the paintbrush. This technique will give you a circle without really any effort.
If you can’t (or don’t want to) watch the video, the process is nice and simple for these ornaments. Paint the top of the wood slice red. Paint the bottom white. Leave the middle wood tone.
Add the eyes with black craft paint. Use a hot glue gun to add the red pom pom nose.
Note: It may take a few coats to get complete coverage especially on the white.
Be sure to allow everything to dry completely before adding these wood slice Santa ornaments to your tree.
I love the simplicity of these rustic wooden Christmas ornaments. They will look amazing on my rustic farmhouse Christmas tree!
I highly encourage you to take 15 minutes to add these wood slice Santa ornaments to your tree this holiday season – you’ll be so glad that you did!
