1 - glitter monogram ornaments

For day 1 of the 12 days of Christmas crafts, here's one of the easiest Pottery Barn knockoffs ever: glitter edged monogram ornaments.

  • White cardstock/paper
  • Scalloped-edge scissors
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Grommets
  • Ribbon
  • Circle cutter (optional, but makes things easier!)
Start by printing out some letters for monograms, leaving enough space to cut a circle around the letter. Then cut some larger circles from cardstock with the scalloped scissors; the inside of this larger circle should fit your monogram circle.

Put glue around the scalloped edge, sprinkle with glitter, and shake off excess. Paste the monogrammed circle inside.

Punch a hole to add the grommet, string some ribbon through, and hang! These could also form a fun banner or garland, depending on how you string them up:

Pottery Barn has some other variations with music sheets and patterned backgrounds - you could cut a circle from any Christmas themed paper and paste it inside to get this type of look.


  1. Ooh, how cute, it would be cute to put pets' photos on there too, hehe. :)

  2. Oh, so cute. Where is all your snow?!? :)
