So, I’m starting to realize I have a crafting obsession with rhinestones. 😳 They’re just so much fun! In this post I’m going to show you how to make these little letter ornaments. They’re a fun way to personalize your tree, which makes them great gifts for your friends and family as well!
Unfortunately, I had already made these ornaments last year, so I won’t be able to show you photos of each step, but I will let you know everything you need to make these ornaments and give you step-by-step instructions.

What you will need:
These ornaments are super easy and you can pretty much mix and match how you’d like to decorate them. My ‘adhesive‘ is technically an acrylic gloss, but it works really well at sealing ornaments. The string I used is embroidery floss but you can use any string you’d like.
Step 1: Cover the letter with adhesive using the paint brush. You can just add it to the front of the ornament if you don’t mind a plain back on the ornament.
Step 2: Dust the ornament with glitter while the adhesive is still wet, then shake off any excess.
Step 3: Glue on the rhinestones with a good sized dab of glue for each.
Step 4: Once the adhesive is dry, tie on the string. With these I did what is called a “Lark’s Head” knot (as I was told by Google 😉), so that the ornaments hang straight forward instead of going to the side.
Step 5: Now all that’s left is to tie off the string! Make sure you put adhesive on the knot when you tie off the string so that it doesn’t come loose while hanging in the tree.
