I don’t know about you, but I have had the same Christmas decorations for ten years probably. Each year, I try to change them up a little by decorating in different ways.  This year, I wanted a more rustic feel. I added burlap ribbon to my garland on my staircase and mantel as well as to my tree. I also decorated with some other natural elements like pine cones. I also made some new ornaments and wanted to share these adorable Winter Woodlands DIY Ornaments I made in a jiffy.


  • Glass Ornaments with Front Opening
  • Craft Essentials Wood Slices
  • Decorative accents Bird’s Nest
  • Touch of Nature Bird’s Eggs and Butterflies
  • Moss
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks (Affiliate Link)
  • Scissors
  • Twine

I purchased all the materials at Jo-Ann. Most of the materials can be found near the floral department.

These are the glass ornaments I found. They have a fairly large opening that the wood slices and bird’s nest fit in perfectly.

Winter Woodland How To

Carefully using a hot glue gun, I glued the moss down first and then glued the wood slices in two of them and the bird’s nest in the third inside as well. I glued down the eggs in the nest, the single butterfly for the center ornament, and for the wired butterflies I put just a dab of hot glue at the end of the wire and it stuck to the wood slice perfectly.

I removed the existing red ribbon and replaced it with twine. Here are a few photos.
