Lodge Ornaments

I love making new ornaments every year.

We add to our collection each year–some are purchased from Hallmark, some from craft shows, others are made by the kids and then I love making some each year (some with the kids some on my own).

Last year I had picked up some greenery cuttings. They had some dead trees in the pile and I was able to get them — FREE– and use them for my project this year.

We cut the pieces last year so they could cure.  I also wanted the sap to dry up.

If you have a real tree, I  think this is a great way to save a piece of your Christmas tree each year and make it into an ornament.

I gathered my supplies and went to work.


  • You will need some wood
  • We cut our pieces on our Dewalt Compound Saw from Rockler.
  • We sanded over the front and back of each disc to give it a smoother finish, still leaving it rustic just not so rough.
  • We used the Canvas Corp hooks (I love the dark coloring for this project)
  • ribbon (I went with a traditional red plaid)
  • I used red and white Bakers Twine
  • A thin point Sharpie

Start off by screwing in the hook.

We are making several of these.

You add the date, ribbon and add the bakers twine for hanging it.

Each one is so unique and different.  I love them all.

We made one for each of the kids.

When my kids get married they will have a great supply of ornaments to take with them as they begin their new life.

We make one for ourselves as well so we will have one to remember all of the fun memories from each year.

I also made this cute sign.  I love the tags so much I am going to make some into ornaments.  It goes along with the lodge style ornaments.
