Make an Oversized Christmas Ornament From Any Wood Round!

8 Materials

Love cute AND super easy Christmas projects? You're in for a treat...

After rummaging through my junk stash, I came across a broken lazy susan I had collected off the curb.

"Hmmm.... that looks like a Christmas ornament..." I mused.

So, I made it happen!

And it was super easy. All you need is a wood round of any size, another small chunk of wood, a stencil if desired and BOOM!

Wait until you see how cute this turned out!

A 14" broken lazy susan with a removed base was perfect to start this project!

But any wood round would do, which are easily found in hardware stores.

First, the wood round was painted in the perfect shade of vintage red. I used Homestead House Milk Paint Barn Red.

The original blog post link at the bottom of this post shares a helpful video how-to of the entire painting and stenciling process. Not to be missed!

About the stencil

Christmas Sweater is a repeating nordic-style sweater pattern that is designed for quick and easy coverage due to the square shape!

It measures 10" x 10", so it fits most projects!

How to stencil

How to stencil with Christmas Sweater

  1. Position Christmas Sweater in the center of the wood round.
  2. Stencil in desired color. (I used Fusion's Raw Silk)
  3. To extend the pattern to the edges, overlap like-minded stencil images along the sides.
  4. To extend the pattern up or down, align tree tops to tiny registration marks at the bottom of the stencil.

View video how-to in the original post link at the end of this post.

To create the ornament top, I attached a small plank of wood behind the wood round with the top sticking up beyond the wood round.

The front was then painted black.

To really ramp up the ornament look, a heavy wire was bent like a hook, then a few evergreen branches were added in a small swag style.

SO festive and SO easy!

The finished ornament!

The finished result is a super cool Christmas ornament that looks so festive hung anywhere! Isn't it the cutest?!
