Oversized Farmhouse Joy Ornament

Hi friends,

Have you decorated for Christmas yet? Due to a busy schedule, including a trip with my husband for a conference, I decided to decorate early this year. I had everything up before Thanksgiving!  😳 🌲

Although I have my favorites that I use every year, I love making new Christmas decorations to freshen things up each year. This Oversized Farmhouse Joy Ornament is super fun and easy to make.

I picked up my wood supplies at Michael’s along with the gray chalk finish paint and got the white chalk finish paint at Hobby Lobby. The wood circle is 9 inches across and the letters are 5-1/2 inches tall.


I painted the wood circle with 2 coats of white paint, letting it dry completely between coats. After the 2nd coat was dry, I lightly dry-brushed gray paint over the white. I painted the letters with 2 coats of gray paint and dry-brushed each letter with white paint. 

I glued the “J” and “Y” to the wood circle using E6000 glue. Then I glued the “O” on top of the other 2 letters. I added several red sequins to add a little color and shine. Then I glued a piece of twine on the back for a hanger. 

Here it is hanging in the middle of my grapevine wreath.

This would make a great teacher or neighbor gift. You can easily make several in just a couple of hours! And with sales or coupons, they make very inexpensive gifts.

If you’re looking for another “Joy” idea, you can see this Joy Farmhouse Wood Sign I made last year in this post

I hope your holiday season is filled with Joy!
