Hey everyone! Caitlin and Manda from The Merrythought here! Today we’ll be sharing some super simple DIY wooden tassel ornaments for all the minimal lovers like ourselves. We’ve been using plywood and craft board for nearly every project recently and we didn’t want Christmas to be left out from our obsession! These are very easy to make and easy to alter to your taste. For all of our crazy color loving ladies – skip the neutrals and add a bit of pink, mint, and gold and you’re good to go!

What you need:

-2″ Wooden Balls

-Drill

-1/8″ Drill Bit

-Paint

-Paintbrush

-Embroidery Thread

-Embroidery Needle

How to make it:

-Drill a hole through the center of each ball. It’s helpful to drill a large hole in a scrap piece of wood for the ball to sit in so it will be easier to drill a straight hole.

-Paint as desired.

-Cut a 8″ piece of embroidery thread and put it through one end of the skein.

-Cut a 3″ piece of thread and wrap around right below the top of the thread. Tie a knot tightly and trim ends.
