DIY Personalized Ornaments

Time to get your craft on, y’all! Ok, so sometimes I love long step-by-step craft projects and feel really proud after I’ve finished. But sometimes I like a quick done-in-two-seconds style craft that turns out crazy cute and makes the perfect gift.

If you don’t think you’re “crafty”, you can do this! Seriously, it’s embarrassing how easy it is.

Without further ado, DIY personalized ornaments to add a little fun to your Christmas trees! I loved creating my daughter’s name on one and “yay” on the other! I also had fun with a 2014 ornament in silver and a monogrammed one too.

  • Clear ornaments: You can find these in glass or plastic in a variety of sizes at craft stores during the holiday season.
  • Sticker letters: I was so impressed at the selection of sticker letters from various fonts to colors and metallics too! Hello gold!
  • Glitter or confetti: If you want to fill the inside of your ornament with a little sparkle! Optional! You could even fill the ornaments with little candies too.
  • Ribbon: Tie a festive ribbon on top!


1. Simply stick your letters on in the words or phrases you’d like! Try names, monograms, memorable dates, etc!
2. Use a funnel to fill with glitter or confetti!
3. Tie on a festive bow and hang on the tree or give as a sweet gift.
4. See, I told you it was easy :)

  1. Hey! LOVE this color combo! Where did you find that exact ribbon, would love the source. Thanks!

    1. Hi Lindsay! It’s from!

      1. Hi Courtney! Didn’t see a response on the question of how well the stickers hold up. Did you have problems with them peeling off?

        1. When I was repositioning them to get the letters where I wanted them, I did not have trouble peeling them off. But once I got them where I wanted them, I’ve left them. So I haven’t tried to take them back off a year later, for example. I imagine you could try soaking or using goo gone if you really need them off after a bit of time.

  2. Awesome idea Courtney!!!! Thanks for sharing…. Happy Holidays!

  3. This is a wonderful idea. Going to do this for a friend who just lost her little darling baby girl.

  4. Beautiful! Where did you get the gold letters/numbers?

  5. Elena Larin says:

    Did you use glass or plastic ornaments? Where did you get them?

    1. I used glass (but you can also buy plastic) and you can find them at any craft store. Michaels, JoAnns,Hobby Lobby, etc!

  6. Love these ! I was wondering what size ribbon you used 5/8′ and if the stickers were scrap booking stickers ? Thanks

    1. Hi Sarah! I used a 5/8″ on the gold and a 1/2″ on the black/white stripe! Any ribbon size would work :) The stickers were indeed found near scrapbooking, I think they’re general use “craft” stickers but scrapbook stickers are perfect!

  7. Kimberley says:

    I love these and rhey look elegant and festive!
    My only concern is how the would hold up in storage. I livw in Florida, hot hot hot. Any thoughts on long term, do you think the stickers will peel up?

  8. Super cute…What do you think about a layer of mod podge or something to seal the stickers?

  9. Love these! Clicked on your tutorial because I saw the name on the ornament. My daughter’s name is Blakely too! Not often you see that name. :)

    1. That’s SO fun! It’s such a beautiful name! :)

  10. says:

    Hi, I used glitter in the baubles but when I’ve put it in its all stuck around the inside of the glass, how did your not?!


    1. Hi Rosie! This was a couple of years ago so if I remember correctly, I filled it and then immediately hung it so as not to have it tip to any side. It might have stuck had I let it do that. I’m not sure, it also just may have something to do with the type of ornament. Perhaps glass vs. plastic makes a difference.

  11. Some may have asked this but I didn’t notice. How did you space the letters perfectly in the name? The line is straight and each letter perfect?

    1. This might have just been luck! If one didn’t lay write, I would carefully peel if off to reposition!

  12. Blakely Meek says:

    Oh my gosh! My name is Blakely and I thought that there’s no way that there’s someone on here using my name! I love this! Super creative

    1. Aw yay! It’s my daughter’s name. I LOVE IT!

  13. I had no idea this was your post! I pinned these on Pinterest a few years ago and made them for my bffs for Christmas. It goes without saying but they loved them!! :)

  14. Thanks for this blog, really interesting and helpful for all, thank you so much for sharing this article.

  15. Simply stick your letters on in the words or phrases you’d like! Try names, monograms, memorable dates, etc

  16. There are so many beauties in this life, thanks to the hands made
