Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


I love a rustic tree look and this will be my second year of decorating for the holidays with a rustic theme. There are so many ornaments you can make yourself that go nicely with the theme and look great on your tree. I had so much fun making this DIY rustic reindeer ornaments and wanted to share how you can do it too. It just requires some simple supplies and takes a few minutes to make. You can even use them as a gift topper paired with rustic wrapping paper and ribbon. Enjoy!
