I have a cute, quick, little Christmas project for you today. It’s super easy and takes only a few minutes to make!
You’ll need 15 mini Christmas ornaments – I found mine at Target. You’ll also need a wood plaque. I found mine at Hobby Lobby – it measures 8 by 8 inches. It has an easel back as well as a sawtooth hanger, so it can sit on a tabletop or hang on your wall. (I think it was only $3.99 – maybe $4.99. Don’t forget to use your coupon!) I used this white chalky finish paint on my project – I like how it helps the ornaments pop! You could also use white acrylic paint.

First paint a thin layer of white paint onto the plaque, feathering it out toward the edges so it’s not completely covered. Let that dry a couple of minutes while you decide what color order you want to make your tree. I had another box of ornaments that isn’t in the picture so that’s why there are some silver ornaments in my tree even though they aren’t showing in the box above. 🙂
I used my heat gun to glue my ornaments to the plaque. Center the middle ornament of the bottom row and glue in place. Be sure to hold it there for a few seconds for the glue to cool so it doesn’t roll away! Then glue on the rest of the ornaments, building around the first one.
And that’s all there is to it! Told you it was easy and quick! 🎄
