You might have noticed that I’ve been doing a lot of DIY Christmas projects this year. Our budget is a little tight, but I don’t want that to keep me from updating our decor or changing things up a little this year. The other day I shared a sneak peek on Instagram of some cute mountains and dala horses. Today, I’m sharing one of those projects with you. And yes, it’s another super simple and cheap DIY: Felt Dala Horse Ornaments and Gift Tags! Yay!
Metal Ornament Hooks
Begin by tracing out your dala horse by hand or using an existing item, like an ornament. I enlarged our dala horses a bit, but still used the ornament as a guide. Carefully cut out your dala horses.
Simply poke the metal ornament hooks through the felt and hang to enjoy. For your gift tags, simply tape the hook to the wrapping paper. Easy!
Dala horses are not only trending, but they are significant to my husband. He has always been proud of his Swedish roots and had always collected dala horses over the years.
He once tried to convince me that we should buy a child sized dala horse at a flea market years ago. I refused at the time, but that would have been cool now…of course. It’s fun to see how popular they’ve become over the years!
