DIY Holiday Ornament Display #DIHWorkshop


I told you we had 3 Holiday crafts, thanks to Home Depot. Well, here is our 3rd! A DIY Holiday Ornament Display. We created our own design and used our favorite holiday colors. (Which went with the other 2 crafts). 

This craft is very easy for any age level and fun for the whole family to create. Remember these DIY/DIH Home Depot Workshops are designed to provide a mix of associate led demonstration and some hands-on learning. Then you can grab the materials sheet, and purchase the items to make your own project. (For more information, contact your local Home Depot store.)

DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments

For materials you will need:

  • 1 – 1 ? x 8 ? x 12 ? Common Board
  • 1 – 1 ? x 6 ? x 8 ? Common Board
  • 1 – 1 ? x 4 ? x 6 ? Common Board
  • 1 – Box #8 x 11?4 Phillips Square Drive Flat-Head Full Thread Zinc Coated Multi-Material Screw
  • 1 – 27 Count Multi-Pack Ornaments


For tools, you will need some type of saw that you are comfortable with (we used a miter saw), a glue gun & sticks, a tape measure and a drill. Optional items are a sand block and paint or stain. 

To start, you will want to measure and mark (3) 48-inch sections from the 1x8x12 board, and (2) 48-inch sections from the 1x6x8 board. For this, I asked the worker in Home Depot to help me. He was more than willing, so if you have a smaller vehicle or maybe a little timid on cutting, just ask for help.

Now you will lay all 5 of the 48-inch boards next to each other, side by side, alternating the 6-inch and 4-inch wide boards. Center one 30-inch board horizontally across the five 48-inch boards about 3 1? 2  inches down from the top, and secure using two wood screws in each board. Repeat on the bottom with the remaining 30-inch board.

You are all done! Now you can paint or stain the wood. I tried to be creative and use painters tape and stripes. Clearly, I am a better idea person than a painter ha.  We decided to stick with the Christmas theme colors we had chosen for the Centerpiece & Stocking Post, which was  Behr Marquee Copper Moon(sample size) , Behr Marquee January Garnet and Rust-Oleum Gold Glitter Spray Paint. I found cheap plastic bulbs in the same colors, plus a pack of battery operated lights. A little glue and we have a beautiful holiday decoration. (The presents are just a wrapped empty box and the battery pack for the lights). We used pine cones from outside for our trunk.

That is it, I hope you enjoy creating your own Holiday Ornament Display! If you need a printable version, just click the photo below to open a PDF.
