Farmhouse Galvanized Buckets Christmas Ornaments

The cutest little DIY farmhouse Christmas Ornament straight from the North Pole! |

I know Halloween is just a few days away, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll blink your eyes, Thanksgiving will be over, and you’ll be freaking out about why you haven’t pulled your tree out of the attic or made any new ornaments yet.  And that’s why I’m here 🙂

Because today I’m participating in …

This is my third year participating in this blog hop and every year I look forward to seeing the creative ornaments the other gals make.

Farmhouse Christmas Ornament - Knick of Time

The first year I made a farmhouse Christmas ornament, and I wanted to repeat that theme again this year with some very easy farmhouse galvanized buckets Christmas ornaments.

How to make Farmhouse Galvanized Buckets Christmas Ornaments

Supplies Needed:

Mini metal galvanized buckets

Shipping tape (1.88″ wide)

Free printable (link below)

First, print out the image at wallet size on a laser printer.  Ink jet copies will not work because the ink will smear.

If you don’t have a laser printer, a copy shop like Staples can make it for you for less than $1.  And you’ll have enough to make multiple ornaments.

Next, trim around the image closely and stick a piece of shipping tape over it.  Make sure the tape covers all the image.

If you’ve never done a tape image transfer before, this video shows how easy it is.
