I just keep telling myself to “keep on truckin.” This is now Day 8 in the “Twelve Days of Christmas” and we are closing in on the finish line! I never knew I was so crafty! Ha! Anyways, I’m sharing another simple ornament that anyone can replicate.
This little ornament had a funny beginning. By the time we got to eight ornaments, I had lost some creativity. Not that this one isn’t creative, but I was just having problems making ideas in my head work in real-life. Anyone else have that problem? I’ll share more on that in a second.

Glue Gun | Scrapbook Paper | Greenery | Wooden Christmas Tag/Ornament | Burlap
So, I started with a wooden reindeer. I stamped the edges with black ink and then covered it in plaid scrapbook paper.
Then I started on the wreath. I had some dried silver greenery type stuff (I’m not sure what it’s called) in our craft box, so I started forming that into a wreath-like form.
I totally hated that when I did it, so then I covered that whole silver thing in burlap. From there I hot glued the reindeer on top of the wreath.
It’s definitely pretty rustic. I like how it turned out, but it just doesn’t scream “me”. But, when you are making this many ornaments, I guess you can make a few that are cute. I can totally see me using this as a gift tag for my sister (who loves this type of decor).
So, what do you think of my Burlap and Reindeer Wreath Ornament?
