Cedar Ring Ornament DIY

Cedar Ring Ornament

Happy December Crafters!

Making Christmas ornaments has become an annual tradition in my home.  Last year I made 5 minute yarn snowballs and sweater stamped socks and mittens to hang on our tree.  This year when I spotted cedar rings at the hardware store I knew I wanted to use them to make ornaments.

They’re meant to slip over hangers in a closet but they have a fresh woodsy smell and are the perfect size and shape for hanging on a tree or using as a plate topper/favor at holiday meals.
