When it comes to making Christmas decor of our own, we find that we really enjoy putting a slightly different spin on the style of things we like creating best compared to a lot of people we know. See, rather than making things that look shiny, new, and fresly made, we’ve gotten really obsessed lately with the concept of making things that look like they’re vintage and old fashioned even if we just made them! That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled for vintage style DIY Christmas ornaments for the past few weeks.
Are you feeling just as interested as we are, if not more, in the idea of making vintage style Christmas ornaments of your very own? Check out these 15 stunning ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
1. DIY vintage jar lid Christmas ornaments
If you’ve never made beautiful crafts out of upcycled jar lids before then we’re sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out on something very cool indeed! In fact, this first design is an idea that actually is quite old fashioned and traditional in many places. Check out how Hello Little Home made beautiful little winter scenes in side their jar lids and hung them on the tree like cheerful dioramas.
2. Sparkly acorn ornaments
Are you pretty taken with this whole idea of making some vintage looking Christmas pieces from unconventional supplies but you’re looking for a vintage idea that’s somehow also quite natural? In that case, this next idea from Curious and Catcat might just be the perfect one for you! They show you how they fully glittered actual acorns from the park nearby in order to make something that’s vintage and glam all at once.
3. Twine and button wreath ornament
If you ask us, rustic looking jute twine is an automatic marker of something that has beautiful vintage style. That’s probably why we adored this lovely Christmas wreath ornament from One Crazy Mom so much! Their technique is clearly outlined and simple enough that even your kids will be able to help you out with this one.
4. Cookie cutter cinnamon Christmas ornaments
If you’re going to put in all the time and effort it takes to make an old fashioned Christmas ornament from scratch, would you much rather make it something that people decades ago actually would have done, rather than something more new-fangled that you’d just styled to look quite vintage? In that case, we think you simply must take a look at the way Clean & Scentsible used actual cookie cutters to make this lovely gingerbread man ornament that’s covered in real cinnamon!
