We've got the simplest of all DIY Christmas ornaments for you today! I wanted to give you guys a quick and stressless idea that you could do on Thanksgiving day while you snack on leftovers and the game is on, or if you need a fun activity to keep the kiddos busy or to help turn the awkward family gathering into something fun and less awkward. Some of my favorite memories are sitting around with friends at our gatherings and making stuff. Conversation just seems to flow easier and you can learn all sorts of stuff about people when your hands have something to do.

Instructions:

I chose to stick with a color scheme for our ornaments to keep the look cohesive and also because I wanted to buy all of the colors but knew I couldn't so a color scheme helped me narrow down my choices.

Simply squirt a little bit of each paint color onto a paper plate or small palette if you want to get fancy. 

After dipping your brush into the paint, simply make brush strokes on your ornament. The simple brush stroke ornaments were my favorite, but we did mix it up a bit by painting some curves and dashes and dots just for fun.

It's that simple, folks. We hung them to dry from the chandelier in our dining room, and afterwards attached ribbon for hanging on the tree, which hopefully we'll be putting up this weekend! 

Tag me on Instagram and let me know if you make your own ornaments! I would love to see your creations!
