When it comes to decorating our Christmas tree, taking the DIY approach and making unique and interesting ornaments is always fun for us. I remember when the boys were younger and my tree was filled with handmade ornaments (Kids Christmas Craft – Box Of Love), and special school projects they would bring home at Christmas time. I cherish those memories and still try to put all of their kid creations on a small tree usually in the dining room so I can still enjoy them even though they are all grown up.
On the other hand now that they are all adults, that just means I can decorate and create my Christmas tree however I choose. In the last few years, I have gone with a rustic, farmhouse style Christmas tree. Adding fun decorations like Mini Reverse Canvas Ornaments and Rae Dunn Inspired Reindeer Christmas Bulbs. This year I wanted to make something simple, but still capturing that farmhouse style. I decided to make mini snow buckets. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and high-quality StyleTech Craft glossy vinyl, I had these mini galvanized buckets completed in no time. Farmhouse Style Christmas Ornaments, pretty white lights, and a warm Christmas cocktail are just a few things that make my heart happy during the holiday season.
Here is how you can make your own Farmhouse Style Christmas Ornaments
- Mini craft buckets (I found them at the dollar tree – THESE are similar for reference)
- Silver Acrylic Paint
- Foam Brush
- Craft Poly-Fil
- StyleTech Craft Glossy Vinyl – letters cut for “Fresh Snow” or your favorite stickers
How to assemble:
Paint each bucket with the silver metallic craft paint, don’t forget the handle. Do not try to be perfect, leave some streaks, even a few bare spots. This will mimic the galvanized look better than a solid paint job. Set aside to dry completely.
While the buckets are drying, turn to your Cricut cutting machine to create the farmhouse letters. I chose to make mine “Fresh Snow 25 cents”
Once the buckets are completely dry, use your StyleTech Craft Transfer Tape to apply the lettering to each bucket.
Add a blob of hot glue inside the bottom of the bucket and place a loose mound of the poly-fil inside to mimic the snow.
Hang them on your beautiful Farmhouse Style Christmas Tree and enjoy them for years to come!
