DIY Filled Ornament Gift

Make your own diy filled ornament that is great for gift giving.

with Gwen Studios


Make a two-fold gift for holiday giving with this Christmas Ornament. It’s an ornament to hang on your tree and you fill it with a special treat. Anyone would love to receive this special gift. All the beautiful ribbons are from Gwen Studios and can be easily found at your local Walmart store.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.

This Christmas Tree ribbon is amazing, I have never seen anything like it. Gwen Studios has a variety of different patterns of die-cut ribbon available. It is cut really well but because of the small pieces, you may need to remove some from the design to gain the full effect.

Check out the display of Gwen Studios die-cut ribbons at Walmart. There are trees, snowflakes, gingerbread men, ornaments, deer, and more.

I ran both the tree and red ribbon through a Zyron sticker maker and stacked them together before I wrapped my ornament with them. Now I am adding the double bow and Christmas medallion to the ornament with a bit of Fabri-Tac glue.

Don’t forget to fill the ornament and attach the gift tag that coordinates. I filled mine with candies but bath salts or hot cocoa would be nice as well. Just personalize the filling to your recipient.

The complete video tutorial can be viewed below:

The filled and finished ornament is ready to gift. It would be great to make a few of these to have on hand for last-minute gift-giving.

Recipe Stack DIY – YouTube hop

Make a quick and easy homemade gift that keeps on giving.

I am participating in a YouTube hop with Taylor Made Cards 4 U. Using this Down on the Farm digital pack, inspired me to create a recipe stack. This quick printable and piecing idea would make for a fun house warming gift, hostess gift, wedding gift, bridal shower gift, and more. The best part about it is that it is expandable by utilizing a ring clip. (or whatever those things are called)


  • digital download
  • cardstock – white, yellow, scrap
  • color printer
  • printer paper
  • sticker paper
  • ring clip
  • adhesive
  • scissors
