on the second day of christmas: DIY ornaments

"On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...2 turtle doves. And a partridge in a pear tree."

Over the rainy weekend I decided to get my crafty pants on. I pulled out some supplies from around the house and created this fun billy ball ornament. I already had the dried billy ball and just placed it in gold sand in a clear ornament. To top it off and cover the silver lid, I wrapped the top in pretty gold and white washi tape {I would cover everything in gold if I could!}. This little ornament was easy to make, cost me only $3 in supplies and would make a great budget-friendly gift. I hope to make some more handmade ornaments this season and will share the love with you. Only a little over a month until Santa comes...

Since I didn't have my tree up when I took those pictures {but I do now, shh! don't tell!} I decided to hang the ornament on these stylish paper mache antlers I found at West Elm during the Design Sponge shin-dig last week.

Don't miss my other "12 Days of Christmas" posts:

  1. I love it! Where do you find gold sand?

  2. Thanks Heather! I actually found the 'sand' (it is synthetic) in the holiday section of Ikea about a month ago! I think it was $1 for a bag of it.

  3. This is such a sweet idea! glad to have found you via byw.
