Ornament 1 – Mini Wooden Frames

Supplies

Tutorial

  1. Paint or stain the Jenga pieces. Set aside to dry. TIP: I like to use parchment paper for things like this. When you paint all the sides at once, the surface doesn’t stick like it would with newspaper.
  2. Glue the Jenga pieces together into a frame shape. TIP: Add a dab of wood glue (for better long-term hold) and a dab of hot glue (to hold the ornament together while the wood glue dries). I also found it easiest to glue two pieces into an L-shape. Do this twice, and then glue the two L-shapes together to form a frame.
  3. Print out these printable graphics. Trim down to size by cutting just inside the square outline.
  4. Cut a length of ribbon. Tie the two ends together with a knot, forming a loop. Hot glue the ribbon knot to the top back edge of the Jenga piece frame.
  5. Line the back perimeter of the frame with hot glue and place the paper cut out over the glue. Smooth down.

Ornament 2 – Mini Gift Ornaments

Supplies

  • Jenga game pieces (at Dollar Tree, it’s called Tumbling Tower Game)
  • Waverly chalk paint in moss and Crimson, white acrylic paint
  • paint brushes
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • wood glue
  • thin ribbon
  • scissors

Tutorial

  1. Paint the Jenga pieces. Set aside to dry. TIP: I like to use parchment paper for things like this. When you paint all the sides at once, the surface doesn’t stick like it would with newspaper.
  2. Glue three Jenga pieces together along the long edge. TIP: Add a dab of wood glue (for better long-term hold) and a dab of hot glue (to hold the ornament together while the wood glue dries).
  3. Cut a length of ribbon 4-6 times longer than the ornament length. Lay the ribbon flat under the ornament. Pull both ribbon tails into the center of the ornament front. Twist two ribbon pieces around once, then pull the tail ends to the back of the ornament over the top and bottom edges. Secure the tail ends on the back of the ornament with hot glue.
  4. Cut a 12-inch length or ribbon. Slide it under the ribbon along the ornament top edge. Tie both ribbon ends together with a knot, forming a loop to hang the ornament.
  5. Cut a 10-inch length of ribbon. Slide it under the ribbon twist on the front center of the ornament. Tie in a bow. Trim the tail ends at a 45-degree angle.

  1. These are so cute I’m addicted to making them and trying new techniques . Would love it if you could fit more of the sayings on a page. When printed there is a lot of wasted paper.

  2. Love this idea and will be using it for chrismas design this year. Wish i had the pictures in Color and not Black and White but cant find them in color. Do you have a color version?
