Printable Retro Ornaments

This time of year it’s a good idea to always have small gifts on hand. Tis’ the season for giving and that can often be overwhelming and pricey. Which is why these Printable Retro Ornaments are the perfect solution! I’m in love with a decor with a bit more jazz to them, so we designed some paper ones that look adorable printed off and cut out! We embellished ours up with jingle bells, tassels, and wooden beads. You can even include a lip balm in the center for an extra gift! These ornaments look beautiful on the tree, adorable on a door handle, or even as a gift topper.

Let’s take a look at how to make them!

Instructions:

  1. Print off the ornament templates and cut them out using scissors and a craft knife for the center hole.
  2. Paint your wooden beads in similar shades to the ornaments. Let dry.
  3. Make tassels with embroidery floss. See our tutorial HERE.
  4. Punch holes at the bottom and top of the ornament and the center hole, so you have 4 punched holes.
  5. With bakers twine, weave your thread in and out of your punched holes, placing a jingle bell or lip balm in the center of the ornament.
  6. At the top and/or bottom of your printable, add beads and tassel.

  1. I saw your post on the recent countryliving.com article. I knew I had to make it. I love it all including hanging inside and under the template. I decided to trace and color with coloring pencils on shrinky dink plastic just so I can use it for years to come. My first attempt is too small but can’t wait to enlarge your template and try again. Thank you for your beautiful design.
