EASILY MAKE THESE TIN TILE ORNAMENTS USING A DOLLAR TREE STAPLE

Crafting with Dollar Tree’s faux tin adhesive wall tile has quickly become one of my favorite supplies to craft with.

So far I’ve made a faux tile pumpkin sign and a tin can Christmas tree hack. For this project, we’re going back to basics and making some super cute and super easy Christmas tree ornaments.

WHY I LOVE THIS PROJECT

The self-adhesive faux tin wall tile has proven to be incredibly versatile to work with and just as fun. Not to mention, it is an inexpensive supply that can make some high-end-looking decor.

Just a few sheets can go a long way. With these ornaments, I was able to fit 4 (or more) ornaments on one, making it feasible to decorate a tree with just a few sheets.

TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE TIN TILE ORNAMENTS

Follow this quick video, or read the step-by-step directions below:

  1. Cut out the ornament outlines from the free printable provided.
  2. Remove the adhesive backing from the faux tin sheet.
  3. Place an ornament outline on the back and trace. Repeat until you’ve traced as many ornament shapes that will fit.
  4. Once you’ve filled the back with shapes, cut them out.

  5. Place the ornaments on a paint-safe surface and begin brushing them with a layer of white chalk paint. Use a pouncing or stippling motion to prevent brush strokes. Set the ornaments aside to dry.
  6. Once the ornaments have dried, use black and tan paint to add a distressed look. Continue until you get your desired look.

  7. Once the paint has dried, hole punch each ornament in the top middle or side.
  8. When decorating, you can get as creative as you’d like. I used burlap and buffalo check ribbon. Check the video for detailed instructions of what I did.
  9. Create a twine tie for hanging the ornament on your Christmas tree.

** TIP: When cutting out the ornament shapes, it’s best to cut right inside the permanent black line.

***NOTE: The printable provided is not mandatory for this craft project. You can use whatever shapes you’d like.

OPTIONAL: I painted the front and back of each ornament. This is optional as only one side will most likely be seen once the ornaments are hung on your tree.
