One thing I have learned throughout the years is that people love to know what to use and how to make it. I love putting together the lists and instructions, but I absolutely love showing how I make stuff. I knew I wanted to make something for Christmas when I was asked to present at the 2020 Christmas Craftathon™️

I have been making all my 2020 Christmas ornaments this year! In this post, I am going to show you how much fun it is to make “the Christmas ornament” of 2020.

Let’s make ornaments!
To make these adorable DIY ornaments, you’re going to start by hot-gluing a Dollar Tree mini Christmas Tree to a Dollar Tree woodblock. Next, hot glue the bottom of the woodblock to the inside bottom of the shaker. I had to use tweezers to drop the mini Christmas tree into the shaker and place it.
Once your mini Christmas Trees are secured in place and the hot glue has dried, you’re going to pour the faux snow into the shakers. I added enough to cover the woodblocks, but you can add more or less. If you’re making this DIY Christmas craft with your kids, this step can be a little messy!
Time to decorate
I decorated each of the salt and pepper shakers differently. For one, I used black baker’s twine and for the other I used red baker’s twine. Cut a piece of each and thread them throught the holes in the lids of the shakers. These will be the ornaments’ hangers.
For the ornament with red baker’s twine, I tore the strip of buffalo check fabric to give it frayed edges. I wrapped a strip of Dollar Tree red buffalo check fabric around the top of the shaker, right below where the lid screws back on.
Tie it off like a scarf and hot glue some of the Christmas berries from the Christmas floral pick.
If you don’t have the Dollar Tree red buffalo check fabric, you can substitue ribbon in its place.
The second Christmas ornament
For the second salt and pepper shaker ornament, I used black baker’s twine and made a small loop bow. Instead of using the berries from the Christmas floral pick, I hotglue some of the leaves onto the top of the shaker just underneath where the lid screws on.
Hot glue your baker’s twine loop bow on top of the Christmas floral pick leaves.
Screw the caps onto both the shakers and you’re ready to hang these easy DIY Christmas ornaments on your tree!
I hope you’ve enjoyed learning how to make these easy Christmas Salt and Pepper Shaker DIY Ornaments as much as I have and decide to make them yourself! If you do, I would love to see how they turn out.
