These or­na­ments from Holly Lefevre at 504 Main are sim­ply a joy to make! Stain two un­fin­ished wood or­na­ments and let dry. Pur­chase “J” and “Y” re­mov­able ad­he­sive let­ters or cre­ate your own sten­cil us­ing a die-cut­ting ma­chine. For the white or­na­ment, press the let­ters onto the stained wood, leav­ing space in the mid­dle for a mini wreath. Paint the front white and let dry. Re­move the ad­he­sive let­ters to re­veal the stained wood. For the red or­na­ment, paint the stained or­na­ment white and let dry. Ap­ply your let­ters, and then go over with red paint. When dry, re­move the let­ters to re­veal the white paint. Sand the edges and front of the or­na­ments for a dis­tressed look. Wipe clean with tack cloth and then glue a mini wreath be­tween the let­ters. Add red-and-white baker’s twine for a hanger.
