Creating A Themed Christmas Tree
If you have been a reader of Daily DIY Life for any length of time, you may already know that I like to have a themed Christmas tree since the boys are older and I can have my way now! They still have their tree, the one with all the cute fun kid ornaments that they have made over the years, like their adorable Box Of Love.
This year, I will still be bringing out my farmhouse inspired Christmas tree at home. Complete with Mini Reverse Canvas Ornaments, Mini Galvanized Snow Buckets, and Rae Dunn Inspired Reindeer Ornaments.
At work, however, I have decided to add a few inexpensive yet beautiful Coastal Christmas Ornaments to match the Caribbean theme. The process was super simple and took just a few minutes to update ornaments that I already had at home from years past, and give them an easy, yet elegant coastal theme.
How To Transform A Basic Ornament To A Coastal Ornament
If you are looking to transform ordinary, Christmas bulbs into adorable, rustic coastal Christmas ornaments, there is one simple supply that you can use to achieve that look. Twine (or jute)!
I decided to make three different Coastal Christmas Ornaments for our Caribbean work tree this year. The first one, I used the dollar tree twine to wrap the top half of the sea blue ornament. Similar to the way a water buoy would look. I used hot glue to keep the twine in place and continued to rap it up the neck of the ornament also.
The second design was even more simple than the first. I just wrapped the twine around the center of the ornament to add a little rustic contrast against the beautiful sea blue. This one might be the simplest design, but I do think it is my favorite. Again, I used hot glue to keep the twine in place.
For the third Coastal Christmas Ornaments, I found a bag of random seashells at the Dollar Tree. I added a small loop with the twine and added them randomly around the tree. Using shells, you can fill any empty spots, add a little bit of color and texture of the beach also. Super simple, and super coastal!
