Forget about spending a fortune on ornaments – we’re getting super creative this year. Give your Christmas tree a farmhouse-style makeover by adding in a couple of bead ornaments!

You can even add a personal touch to the ornaments by printing out a custom message to display on it. To make sure you cut out the perfect circles out of the foam board, I suggest using a rotary cutter like the one you here.

Having a good quality hot glue gun is a must here too!

The set you can find here keeps everything neat and tidy for your craft sessions. Also, this craft requires a little bit of ribbon, so feel free to stock up on that for your future projects here.
