How to make Rustic Wood Peg Ornaments
Time needed: 20 minutes
- Stain the Wood Peg
Use a paint brush to apply a thin coat of Valspar Antiquing glaze. This gives the wood a nice aged effect without using a messy stain or distressing. It simply brings out the beauty of the wood itself.
- Attach Ribbon
The next step is attaching your ribbon. A variation of colors and patterns can make these wood peg ornaments unique to you and your tree. For a nice full effect I suggest a few layers of ribbon. I suggest thin strips for pegs like these. The ribbon demonstrated here is 1in ribbon
Once the ribbon was in place, the real fun begins! Nothing says rustic farmhouse like rusty jingle bells, am I right? A combination of bells and clippings from an old artificial tree to top off this rustic little ornament.
- Create a Hanger
This step is a no brainer. You have to create a way to hang your new wood peg ornament. My best suggestion is tying a loop in some good ole jute twine and attaching with hot glue! Easy as pie.
You can continue these steps listed above, altering fabrics, bows and textures to make an assortment of adorably rustic wood peg ornaments.
I just love how easy these are to create and I am in love with how stinkin cute they turned out. Do it yourself ornaments are my favorite thing to create this time of year. In my house, literally nothing is safe from becoming an ornament on my tree.
