How to make Rustic Wood Peg Ornaments 

Time need­ed: 20 min­utes

  1. 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.antiquing a wood peg with glaze

  2. 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.

  3. Embell­ish

    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.

  4. 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.easy diy wood peg ornament

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.
