I was scrolling Instagram the other day and saw a video for decoupage wooden ornaments…and it got me thinking…
I instantly thought I needed to also make my own ornaments…but with something different. An alternative to using decoupage. (Decoupage is the process of mixing glue (like Elmer’s white school glue) together with water and making a paste to make something (typically paper of some sort) adhere to something different (wood, glass, etc).
Decoupage is definitely an amazing way to create very unique pieces, but it’s also pretty messy. And I don’t know about you, but I’m working hard on creating less mess around my house and using up things that I have!
I decided to use some of the beautiful furniture transfers designs that I have from Dixie Belle on wooden circles that I bought in a package from Walmart in the craft isle.

DIY Wood Circle Ornament Using Transfer Designs
- Pick a design
Choose which design you would like to transfer onto the wood circle
- Cut out design
Ensuring that the white paper backing stays on the clear design sheet, cut out the design, making sure that it is large enough to fit on the wood circle
- Adhere design
Using the wooden stick provided in the transfer package, firmly rub the design onto the wooden circle. Peel back the clear plastic transfer sheet very carefully, pressing again with the wooden stick where needed
- Add sisal string
Cut an 8″ piece of sisal string. Fold in half and tie the two ends together in a knot. Using a hot glue gun, apply a small dab of hot glue to the knot and adhere onto the back of the wooden circle ornament
This is what the ornaments look like when complete! Aren’t they so cute? They would make a great gift idea or a gift tag on a present!
