DIY Christmas Ornaments Made To Fit Your Style

How many of you love going to stores and just bee-lining to the Christmas decor? How many of you think the ornaments being sold are too expensive? (I mean, the holidays are tough already to be breaking the bank, am I right?) And finally, how many of you can’t find ornaments that fit your style?

Well, I’m going to show you a few ornaments I made with the Silhouette CAMEO® 3 and the Silhouette Curio™, which definitely fit my modern bohemian style.

Vellum And Cardstock Feather Ornaments


How cute are these feathers? I picked up this printed vellum at a local craft store because it looked like a feather of some exotic bird.

For these feather ornaments I used Design ID #47866, printed vellum, Silhouette Adhesive Cardstock in white, and my new and amazing Silhouette CAMEO® 3. First I cut the base/outline of the feather with the vellum and then I placed the detailed cut cardstock on the top. Super easy—those are 5 minute ornaments right there!

Merry Vibes 3D Star Ornaments


Merry Vibes indeed. These adorable 3D stars were made with Silhouette Adhesive Cardstock in white and a Silhouette Sketch Pen in gold.

As you can see, with one star I used a sketch pen to make it more personalized, and to the other star I glued Epsom salt to look like snow. Although these are ornaments, I believe they would make a great garland as well. Maybe I’ll make that next year.

You can make this star with Design ID #104791. And you can adjust the design to make them different sizes.

Wild & Free Sketch and Wood Ornaments



For these wooden ornaments, I used my Silhouette Curio™.

I took a thick piece of plywood and measured it to the size of my cutting mat. Remember, the Curio won’t cut plywood, but you can definitely write on them just like I did here with Design ID #76452 using the Silhouette Sketch Pens. And then I cut the plywood into shapes with my scroll saw. This is a great way to customize ornaments to your style.

For more ideas on how to use the Silhouette Curio™, see this post here.


At the end I hung all my ornaments onto this wonderfully odd branch. And yes, I cut out those leaves on the branch with my CAMEO.

I hope I gave you some inspiration on what you can create to fit your style for the holidays. Merry Vibes, people.

  1. I know that you are sharing what you did with the silhouette but I’d love to know how you made that little macrame piece. It goes perfectly with the feathers.

    1. Thank you, Sara. I actually took a local crafting workshop. But before that I learned also the basics of macrame on YouTube. So that will help you get started.

  2. Gorgeous 🙂

    1. Thank you, Janet! 🙂
