Ashton is redecorating her room with a nautical theme & wanted her tree to match. We still need to paint the pink wall behind the tree (can’t wait until it’s done so we can reveal – it’s my favorite room now or will be when the pink is gone). My goal as always was to spend little to no money on her ornaments so we set out to see what we could come up with around the house.
We found inspiration for the life ring ornaments here.
I couldn’t find any small styrofoam rings but I found some unfinished wood curtain rings in a box in my craft room – even better – they were FREE (although I’m sure I paid something for them when I bought them – probably clearance though because that’s the way I roll).
To make the ornaments, I took the hardware off the rings, painted the m white with acrylic paint, cut natural jute rope a little larger than the ring, and navy duck tape then assembled by taping the jute to the ring.
