to you I’d encourage you to hit the subscribe button below and turn the bell
notifications on so you don’t miss any of the fun that we’re having here on
designed to the nines so you’ll notice behind me I’ve had this
tree in the background for the past couple of episodes and it’s looking a
little bare it’s a need of ornaments so when Heidi Sonboul reached out to me to
co-host her challenge to do Christmas tree ornaments I was so excited to
accept so that’s what we’re doing today so if you haven’t seen Heidi’s channel
before make sure you pop on by now as promised from last week’s episode I have
got some unbelievably cheap ornaments for you and when I say cheap I mean
inexpensive not cheesy now we’re talking less than 10 cents an
ornament up to no more than a dollar and you don’t need to rewind that you heard
me right less than 10 cents per ornament what I’ve done is I’ve created this
printable for you my little Christmas gift to you at the end of the episode
I’ll tell you where to get that each one of these is an individual ornament so
we’re gonna just cut them out we are using dollar trees tumbling tower pieces
for this DIY go ahead and add this to your ‘101 ways to make decor with this
little game’ list you are going to want to make sure you cut out each piece to
the width of a tumbling block leaving a little bit of room on top and bottom if
you can’t find the tumbling Tower you can use craft sticks as a substitute after you’ve cut everything out now we
are going to just hot glue a tumbling block to the top and one to the bottom then cut a piece of twine approximately six inches long you can get this twine
in a package of three at the Dollar Tree we will hardly make a dent in even one
roll hot glue it on the back and the shape of a loop and it really is that
easy all right so are extremely inexpensive
farmhouse ornaments are done less than ten cents apiece when you’re making
several of them the super fun super cute and most importantly budget-friendly now
it’s time to start our Rae Dunn inspired ornaments I discovered like the most
amazing product that when I saw it I was like where were you when I was making my
monogrammed lazy susan tray if you haven’t seen that episode it’s a really
good one but it’s a Scorch marker if you’ve seen these before let me know in
the comment section below and we’re going to use in the sweetest
little possible way but I have a feeling that there’s going to be more projects
using this scorch marker now this is not a sponsored post but I reached out to
them and they did send me some markers to try for free now you can do this
project without cutting Cricut vinyl but since its rae dunn inspired and I have
this Cricut machine and we’re using it for our second one as well
we are going to go ahead and cut some vinyl that we’re going to use as a
stencil on this project and you’ll see how I’m going to do that in just a
second we’re gonna cut the vinyl for both of our projects at the same time if
you don’t have a Cricut machine don’t worry I’m providing a free printable
that I’ll tell you how to get at the end of the episode to do an image transfer
process that you’ve seen me do here before but if you don’t have a Cricut I
would put it on your Christmas wish list because I am having so much fun with
this I’m totally obsessed so let’s go ahead and cut our vinyl
all of the supplies I will be using will be listed in the description box below
this video but I picked up these 1 inch wooden stars in a package of 20 from
Michaels and after you put on your vinyl template onto the little stars you
simply just take the Scorch marker and fill in your stencil if you don’t have a
stencil you can still take the marker and handwrite it on I brought us down to
the kitchen because I didn’t want to use the heat gun in my craft room on my wood
table it might have been fine but I just want to play it safe so we’re gonna do
this on my granite I’m pulling out my heat gun and we are going to see what
happens you’re gonna want to be really careful when working with a heat gun
because you can burn yourself so just be careful that takes a second how fun was
that I mean seriously so you just keep giving it heat until
it’s your desired level of darkness and then you can put a sealer on it or leave
it natural just think of the possibilities that we can do with a
scorch marker such a cool product I love it now we’re gonna put together our
little tiny mini wreaths and we’re gonna start out by taking I’m just going to
cut some off just because I think it’s going to be easier I’m going to take
some of this vine and we are going to just wrap it around after wrapping the
green Garland around the tiny wreaths I just cut off some of the berries from
the bushes that I picked up from the Dollar Tree and hot glue them on then I picked up some of this candy cane
twine Michaels for about a dollar fifty for the roll we’re gonna cut some off
and then we’re gonna fold it in half and hot glue it to the back of the star then
we thread the twine through the top of the wreath and make a knot so we finished our tiny little mini
wreaths with the rae dunn inspired star that was burned on into the wood again
you don’t have to burn it on you could handwrite something or use a paint pen
or just do vinyl lettering and it would also be cute but I really liked that
scorch marker now we’re going to just make a simple rae dunn inspired ornament
you’ve probably seen these around most of the ones that I’ve seen have chalk
painted the interior the exterior of the ornament but I found these ones at
Walmart for $3.97 (US) it’s a matte white finish so to make it easier on you we’re
gonna just use these I’ve got some Rae Dunn vinyl lettering now I have to tell you I
went through many different designs I had some really cute things that were
designed but the vinyl lettering was tiny and so it didn’t cut well they were
so cute and I’m a little deflated to be honest with you these are still gonna be
great but what I had designed was awesome but it wouldn’t work with a vinyl so if
you have any tips for me on cutting really fine vinyl lettering maybe you
just can’t do it I don’t know let me know start out by taking one of your
ornaments and your vinyl lettering and simply place it in the center of the
ornament now be careful and strategic because it is round I probably made mine
a little too large at two inches tall again if you don’t have a Cricut you can
either do the transfer method or you can just buy premade labels off of Etsy
they’re actually pretty reasonably priced apply your vinyl and then all I
did was make some little tiny bows and hot glue them on including the ornament
vinyl and the bow I have like a dollar in to each one of these ornaments it’s
such a great deal all right that’s it we’ve finished our
ornaments I haven’t really decorated the tree yet but if you want to see me
decorate the tree then you’re gonna want to stay tuned to the end of this month
I’m doing at an extreme Christmas makeover on my master bedroom and I’m
going to take this tree in there and we’re gonna decorate it up really cute
so you’ll have to stay tuned for that if you don’t want to miss it make sure you

  1. Which was your favorite ornament? For more Christmas inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY0ELUenA4k&list=PLjjYvI3QMK42DTulE4ugBx-8io122tkE5

  2. I LOVED the scorch pen! what a cool tool! Those little joy stars were so cute. I liked them all, but I think my favorite was the wreath ornament. Awesome job as always my sweet friend!

  3. What?A scorch marker? I so want one!! All the ornaments are adorable and can't beat the price! But my favorite were the little wreaths!

  4. I've never seen a scorch pen before but that is pretty awesome, do you think a hair dryer would work or would it not be hot enough to work?

  5. Flawless. I enjoy your tutorials so much. I especially love tbe tiny canvases, I wonder whether it would work printing on calico, that eould make some stunning canvas designs πŸ‘πŸ’Ÿ

  6. They are so fun!!! Honestly, i love the wreath! Its the star…and the scorch pen! I have such a hard time burning letters,this pen is a game changer! 😘

  7. When using the vinyl especially detailed designs I find it best to change the setting from default to more! The default setting shows up after you pick your cutting material. Or basically the opposite of what they call a kiss cut. It cuts the vinyl a little deeper and much easier to work with. Hope that’s helpful. I learn something new daily with my cricut! Such an amazing tool to have!

  8. As always, you have just plain awed me! I did put a cricut on my wish list 😁….we shall see. Until then, I'll use your printables. Thank you so much! 🌹❀

  9. These are all so good! Everything you do is just classy, but you make it look effortless. Yes to all, thank you, carry on πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜

  10. Such darling ornaments, love them all. That scorch pen is awesome. Safer than using a wood burning tool. I'll have to check that out πŸ™‚

    The 3rd one Rae Dunn Christmas Ornaments I’m so doing this one. Tip I have is when applying the decal on the ball is to make little slits in between the letters to make it easier to apply on the ball. Always start from the center like you did! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

  19. Try reverse weeding for the small little fonts on vinyl if the issue is trying to get them onto the transfer paper. Just search reverse weeding for a good explanation.

  20. NataLee loving all the ornaments you made. My favorites are the cute mini wreaths and the Rae Dunn ornaments. Thanks for hosting and for sharing!!

  21. Hello, I just wanted to let you know that when I wanted to cut detailed small lettering with my Cricut I also had problems, so I contacted Cricut and they helped me setup a personal setting so I could do it. I've not had a problem since I have this new setting to use when cutting small print like the thin Rae Dunn type font

  22. I love these ornaments! My favorite is the little wreath. Cannot wait to see your master bedroom all ready for Christmas! Looking forward to that episode πŸŽ„
