DIY Holiday Ornaments Turned Accessories: Headband

DIY Ornament turned into Headband

For this DIY we used the beautiful jewel encrusted ornament designed by Chan Luu. Our clever team used this ornament to create an adorable headband in just a few easy steps! All you need is a plain old headband and some fabric glue.

Untie the ornament from its hook, and then bit by bit, use the fabric glue to adhere it to the headband. We used clips (pictured below) to hold the ribbon in place as it dried.


That’s it! I love how the hanging chains give this a delicate feel:

DIY Holiday Ornaments turned Accessories

Have you guys seen our beautiful collection of holiday ornaments? We have chosen some of our favorite jewelry designers to collaborate with, interpreting their aesthetic and materials into ornaments that can be hung on a tree! The ornaments are lovely, and the best part is – all of them can be turned into accessories that you can wear and enjoy all year round :) Our team helped put together some awesome tutorials on how to do this – first, we’ll show you how to turn the ornaments into earrings or necklaces!

DIY ornaments turned into earrings

What you need:

A pair of pliers and two earring hooks – you can find these online at places like amazon or at your local craft store.

We used the Zodiac Coin Ornament – I love that these have little fortunes on the back :)


Using your pliers, remove the large hook that comes on the ornament.


Replace the large hooks with the earring hooks, using the pliers to pinch them shut.


You now have a new pair of earrings :) It would be really cute to mix your own zodiac sign on one ear and a loved one or best friend’s sign on the other!

DIY ornaments turned into necklaces


This one is really simple – all you need is a chain of your choosing, and, depending on which ornament you use, you might need the pliers.

We used the Crystal Claw Ornament:



Remove the ribbon the ornament comes with.


And add the chain! Easy peasy.


These ornaments would make great earrings OR necklaces:

Dalila Turquoise Ornament


Aiyanna Dream Catcher Ornament
