Do you like DIY projects that are really fun to put together and don’t take that much time? Well if that’s the case then I’ve got some ideas for you today! It’s Judy VZ here and I love making DIY ornaments!
The 3 projects I’m sharing today all use the same base, which is store-bought, with a variety of die cuts to embellish. I cut my shapes from cardstocks in the traditional Christmas colors of red, white, and green, which are on special this month at CutCardStock!
I’m using round MDF picture frame ornaments as my base and decided to make 2 of the ornaments shakers. This was pretty easy to do as these frames have acrylic, which I glued to the inside front. Next, I added the large star glitter. Then, I die cut a piece of card stock and glued it to the back of the frame. It’s ready to decorate.
Gingerbread Man DIY Ornament
For the first ornament I used: STARDREAM METALLIC JUPITER (RED) 105LB 8.5 X 11 CARD STOCK SILK GLITTER RED FLASH DISCOUNT CARD STOCK BASIS WHITE 80LB CARDSTOCK BASIS 8.5X11 WHITE 110LB CARDSTOCK BASIS 8.5X11 OLIVE 80LB CARDSTOCK BASIS 8.5X11 GREEN 80LB CARDSTOCK DCS DISCOUNT CARD STOCK: CANVAS TEXTURED GINGER SNAP CARD STOCK
The back and front of the frame is Stardream Metallic cardstock, as seen above. I die cut a gingerbread man, berries, pine fronds, and a sentiment.
Pieces of red, green, and white scraps are glued to the back of the gingerbread man. I started adding the die cuts.
Next, I added the pine fronds and berries to the left side of the frame. And then, I added a bow to finish.
Peace DIY Ornament
Card stocks used for the second ornament: STARDREAM METALLIC JUPITER (RED) 105LB 8.5 X 11 SILK GLITTER RED FLASH DISCOUNT CARD STOCK BASIS 8.5X11 OLIVE 80LB CARDSTOCK DCS DISCOUNT CARD STOCK: CANVAS TEXTURED BONSAI GREEN – 8.5X11 INCH BASIS 8.5X11 WHITE 110LB CARDSTOCK SILK GLITTER OPULENT OPAL 12X12 CARD STOCK CHRISTMAS PRINT 6X6 CARD STOCK PAD – (green glitter)
First, I did all the die-cutting.
Then, I adhered the “Peace” die-cut to the opulent opal circle die cut and added it inside the frame. The other die cuts are layered and glued to the frame front. I added a bow and red pearls.

The third project is another shaker put together in the same way as the first.
