Making Christmas Ornaments & A Confession

Paint Stick ornaments.. These were so fun and easy
to make. Last year, I found these on this blog.
She  made these free printables to use. And her instructions
are  so easy to follow..  
Keep reading my confession will follow in the end. smile

 I love the  truck/car and Christmas tree stuff. Carolyn at :

Carolyn, made some of these  mason jar ring ornaments , 
using  paper  from Hobby Lobby.. They were so cute.. I am
not finished with these..[waiting on it to warm up, so 
I can paint my jar rings. eeeeeh]. I also decided to  do
a paint stick one too. Fun and Cute.
ps. Thank you Carolyn for  reminding me  where to find
the  instructions for the paint stick ornaments..  You are 
where I first saw the ornaments.. They were so pretty on
your tree.

Confession time...
In Early December- 2015, I saw these adorable paint stick
ornaments.. I rushed out to Lowes to  buy the sticks and paint
to make them. Came home , was oh so sweet to hubby.. 
and got him to cut the sticks and drill holes in them.. He
got them done really quick [see, he knew I was in a hurry.
 So, I could get them on the tree...Welllllllll.. I procrastinated.
 I painted them. [the first step for me, Kenny had done the
other steps.]  I put them in a basket, out of sight and out
of mind.. Forgot them......... oh no. 
 I pulled them out , determined to  finish them up in 2017..
I couldn't find the blog  of the lady  who gave the 
instructions.. [I had forgotten that Carolyn made them? --
old age for sure].   Then Carolyn emailed me with the blog
sight... [she is so sweet].
And i finally finished them... [A little too late for Christmas
2016...--- But you be looking for them to be shining
on my 2017 Christmas tree..

My prayer is that you all have a very blessed and Merry


  1. Oh i love this idea Judy and I too want to make Paint stick ornaments! It's doesn't matter it took you awhile. They will look lovely next year on your tree!

    1. Thank you Vickie.. They were so simple.. I can see me making more, when I get some more paint sticks..

  2. They're beautiful and will look just as nice in the last few days leading up to Christmas! :)

    1. Thank you Nakisha.. Hope you and family have a wonderful Christmas and you enjoy your Christmas sewcation..

  3. They are lovely, Judy! I would go ahead and add them to the tree, this year! There's still a couple of days till Christmas, after all!

    1. Thank you Bless.. I had fun doing them..[even though it took me so long, ha]

  4. So glad I was able to help you find the source, Judy! Yours turned out beautifully! And it was so nice of Janet to provide the free printable and the instructions. I noticed she just added additional paint stick printables with all the names of Christ in Spanish. So nice! Wishing you an awesome Christmas with your family!

    1. Thank you Carolyn. I appreciate you.
      I too, saw the new printables that Janet posted for the paint sticks.. What an awesome idea.
      Pray you and your family have a blessed and Merry Christmas too.

  5. Oh, they are so pretty! You did a great job! The others will give you something to look forward to for next year, Lord willing! God bless you and your family with a wonderfully blessed Merry Christmas!

    1. Thankyou Cheryl.. I enjoyed making them.. And look forward to finishing the others.. Hope you and your family have a blessed and Merry Christmas.

  6. They are definitely pretty, Judy. You did an amazing job. Have a wonderful Christmas!

    1. THank you so much... I enjoyed making them... Hope you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

  7. I guess you know you're not the only one who does that kind of thing......I guess it will be a bunch of surprises for me when I finally get through the remaining bins from our move. Here's hoping I get the willpower to get right at it now that Christmas is over.

    The ornaments did turn out beautifully.

    1. Thank you Becky.
      I think a lot of us have that procrastination Moving is so hard. We just moved in May [after living in our other house for 30+ years].Wow.. was it a job .. And we are still looking for stuff . ha

  8. I love your decorations, so glad you were able to finish them, even if slightly late. I have done that also where each year I'll pull something out and this will be the year I will finish it but then time gets away. At least you succeeded! Have a wonderful New Years! Kelly.

    1. Thank you Kelly.. Proud I am not the only one.ha
      Happy New Year to you and your family..

  9. Oh my goodness, dear Judy...we are more alike than you know! This is exactly something I would have done (and have done!)! These are so adorable...I will have to try some of these! I hate to admit how many projects I have all the supplies for...but haven't done yet! (smile)

    1. Yep... I think we are sisters in more ways than
      These were so easy, and turned out so cute.. what a shame, I procrastinated and took so long to do them.. I want to make some more this year/ Let me know , if you make them, I would love to see them.
