Pinterventures 4th Annual Ornament Tutorial

Welcome to the 2019 Ornament Exchange Link Party! It’s the fourth year of the blogger ornament exchange and you'll find hundreds of DIY ornament tutorials and inspiration. This link party runs from November 14th through December 14th, so make sure to come back to add as many handmade ornament tutorials before it closes!

This year, we have 38 talented bloggers hosting the handmade ornament exchange link party! The rules of the challenge were simple: create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial (all tutorials are linked below), and ship the ornament off to a new home!

I participated in the ornament swap and exchanged with Audrey, creator at That Recipe and Munifore. I was excited to be her partner as I am a big fan of her blogs. We are in several groups together, and I have admired her from afar.

She hit a home run with this ornament for me. It will be beautiful on the coastal tree I put in my married daughter's bedroom!

  1. Oh my goodness, Terri, I just noticed on your sidebar that you have a West Highland Terrier! Our first child was a Westie LOL and our kids grew up with her. She was the best dog EVER! Anyway, sorry, got sidetracked. LOL Love your pretty black & white buffalo check ornament! Enjoyed your tutorial on how to make them too.

  2. What a fun ornament to make! I have lots of fabric scraps that would be perfect for this!

  3. This is beautiful and easy enough for me to make. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love the buffalo check and the embellishments. It's also great that it's light weight and won't pull down branches. Pinned.

  5. I love it! Buffalo Check is my favorite and this is so pretty and simple to make.

  6. The check is so pretty . Pinning to my ornament board.
