DIY boho christmas ornaments

Friday, December 2, 2016

As I was putting up my Christmas tree this year I felt like it needed some type of black ornament to balance out all of the silver and gold.  The tree was leaning a little more boho this year with the addition of some wooden bead garland, so I ran with it and pulled together these easy tassel ornaments.


  • black yarn
  • 1" round wood beads (I used these from Hobby Lobby)
  • 3/4" round wood beads (I used these from Hobby Lobby)
  • scissors
  • thin piece of wire

STEP  ONE:  Loosely wrap the yarn around the base of your fingers 25 times.

STEP TWO:  Gently pull the yarn off your hand and run a 12" long piece of yard through the top loops and knot in place.

STEP THREE:  Cut the bottom loops.

STEP FOUR:  Tie a 6" piece of yarn near the top of the tassel and knot in place.  Cut any excess yarn from the knot and even out the bottom of the tassel.

STEP FIVE:  String the wooden beads onto the top of the tassel.  Make it easier by using a thin piece of wire to thread the yarn through the beads.

STEP SIX:  Knot the top of the strings to use for hanging the ornament.


layered door mats

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving!  Ours was nice and easy at home this year.  Just us and the kids.  I still made the table a little fancy even though it was low key.  My husband surprised Izzy and I with flowers the day before so they were the perfect centerpiece.  This is from my Instagram.  

It has my new favorite table cloth and pattern in it.  You may have also seen that pattern in the post following.  

By the way, if you're not following me on Instagram yet I'd love to have you!  There is a lot that I share there that doesn't make it to the blog, and you'll usually always see what I'm currently working on there first.  

So, the rug.  That's what I've brought you here today for.  I've been wanting to add a little 2x3 rug under our door mat and finally found the perfect black and white gingham rug.  Which, I don't know if I'm using the correct term.  Is it gingham or buffalo plaid??

Either way I don't care, I'm in love!  Door mats don't usually get much attention, but now it is hard to not notice.  There are so many great combinations you could create.  You really can't go wrong!  Most door mats are 1'6"x2'6" (18"x30") so a 2'x3' rug works perfectly underneath.  I've pulled together some different looks for you, and even a couple of Christmasy ones.  My set up is the top left.  The gray squares on the white stripes aren't quite as dark as they appear in the product image, but it still works great since most of it is covered by the coir door mat.  

Which one is your favorite?  I think I want to pick up the Christmas car.  Especially since it's only $12.99!
