Dressy Deer Ornament

This is a quick ornament craft project that you can make with your kids and give to a nature lover (especially nice for a masculine ornament gift). Not overly bling-y, just a touch of metallic along the edge keeps it festive, dresses it up, and catches the lights from a Christmas tree.

Materials needed:

  • Deer shaped wooden ornament from a craft store (or similar wooden ornament)
  • Brown craft paint and paintbrush
  • Kreinik Custom Corder™
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in colors 3503, 022L, 021L (or similar 1/8" Ribbon colors)
  • craft glue or 1/8" double-sided tape


Instructions:

  1. Paint the wooden ornament and let it dry thoroughly.
  2. Meanwhile, make your trim using the Kreinik Custom Corder™ following the manufacturer's directions that come with the corder. Measure the outside edge of your ornament so you know how much trim to make (tip: the Corder uses a 3:1 ratio, so you need three times as much thread as your measurement for the finished cording).
  3. Add a dab of glue to the end of your trim to keep the ends from raveling. Let it dry thoroughly.
  4. Using glue or the 1/8" double-sided tape, adhere the trim to the outside edge of the painted ornament. Use your scissors or a toothpick if needed to press the trim into tight corners.
