DIY Christmas Ornaments with Quilt Block Patterns

I’ve kind of gone nuts this year sharing DIY Christmas ornaments, but since I wanted a specific theme for our Christmas tree, it was easier to make the ornaments myself  than search all the stores looking for just the right ones.

Since the theme I picked is “simple farmhouse”, I brainstormed what comes to mind when I think of farmhouses, and quilts immediately came to mind.

I remembered the barn quilt my son and I made together in the spring, and the quilt-inspired chair I painted a few years ago, so I went back and revamped those ideas into ornaments!

I’m sharing the printables and instructions, so you can make some yourself as well! 🙂

First, you’ll need some ceramic ornaments.  I bought mine half off at Hobby Lobby.  They are about 3.8″ wide.

These are the three designs you’ll use to create the quilt block ornaments.

You’ll need to print each image separately, but if you plan to make more than one of each style of ornament, you can fit up to 4 of each on a page (I just printed one for this photo).

{Click on each image below,save it to your computer, and print as a 3-1/2 x 5″ image.  If you don’t know how to print at that size, just save the images to a memory card, and take them to a print shop like Staples, and they can easily do it for you if you tell them the size you need.

You’ll notice there is a circle around each image.  If your ornaments are the same size as the ones I bought, you’ll cut on the inside line of that circle – not the outer part of the line, so it looks like this when you cut it out.

If you can’t locate round ornaments,and want to make square ones, here are the images to do that.  These will print all 3 on one page.

Make sure to UNcheck the “fit picture to frame” selection, so that none of them get cropped.

Once  you’ve cut the images out, just decoupage them onto the ornaments, and allow them to dry.

I spayed mine with sealer to protect them.

I’m really happy with how they came out, and they coordinate really well with the other ornaments I made this year.
