Make a fun and glittery winter wonderland wooden Christmas ornament with this easy tutorial.

Themed Christmas trees are kinda my jam. In the past, I’ve decorated a rustic tree, red and white themed tree and even a coastal tree but this year I decided to go with a winter wonderland-themed tree. Sparkly, glittery and gorgeous. And since every winter wonderland tree needs a sparkly ornament, today I’m sharing an easy tutorial for a winter wonderland themed wooden Christmas ornament.

  1. Download the SVG file – It is available in my resource library, free for email subscribers
  2. Cut out your SVG file – I recommend using Oracal 651 vinyl. If you want to cut the SVG file in a few different colors as I have, you can follow this tutorial on how to cut by color. Make sure to measure your sign and size your file(s) to fit before you cut your file(s)
  3. Weed the SVG files – Once your design is finished cutting, weed the excess vinyl using a weeding hook.
  4. Apply transfer tape – Once your file is weeded, line up all your pieces on one piece of transfer tape by layering vinyl using this method.
  5. Paint your sign – Paint the inside of your sign white and the edges gold. After painting, let your sign fully dry. Don’t jump the gun on this one. I know it’s tempting to apply the vinyl but if your sign isn’t fully dry, the transfer tape will pull up the paint.
  6. Apply washi tape to the edges of your sign (optional)
  7. Apply the SVG file with the transfer tape – Once your sign is fully dry, (seriously…you need to wait until it is FULLY dry or you will have a mess), apply the file to your ornament. See this post if you need a tutorial on how to use transfer tape with vinyl.
  8. Attach a hanger – Make a loop with some bakers twine and adhere it to the back of the ornament with hot glue.
