Make these gorgeous DIY Christmas Scroll Ornaments this season. Super simple way to bring the focus back on why we celebrate this season.
Hello my friends! I am so glad you are here today. I am partnering with DecoArt paint for a beautiful project to enhance your tree. These DIY Christmas scroll ornaments have been an idea on my mind for a couple of years now and now feels like the perfect time to create them.
I don’t know about you but our year has been quite a roller coaster ride, you know the coaster – the one that is ridiculously tall that it seems to touch the clouds and shakes as the cars run through the loops. The one that you stare at in disbelief, “You got to be kidding, I’m riding that?” you think to yourself as you get on board. Yes, yes you are. At some point in the ride terror turns to the bravery and you decide to just go with it and find the joy in the hills and valleys.
I won’t bore you with details because we probably could sit over a pot of coffee and share for hours. You on your roller coaster of life and me on mine. Through it all, I am learning and reestablishing what is truly important in life. Hence, these Christmas scroll ornaments. This year I want our last family Christmas in this home to be precious and on focus.
Oh, did I tell you we are moving?
Part of my coaster ride. I will share the story in-depth one of these days with you, it’s definitely a “feed the soul kind” of story.

I wanted a way to dress my tree with scripture but didn’t want to spend a lot of money and I am really keeping the decor to a minimum since we will be on the market. If you decide to make these for yourself – I will include the pdf of the scriptures I used to make creation a little easier. Make sure you read through the entire post – because I will add it to the end.
DIY Christmas Scroll Ornaments
- Wooden dowels .375in x 12 in (you will be cutting these is half)
- Dowel caps 3/8in hole 1-inch diameter
- Mini tassels (I chose gold)
- Narrow ribbon 1/2 wide
- DecoArt acrylic paint – your favorite colors
- Cardstock (to print the scriptures)
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue
- Paper cutter or scissors
Step 1- Print
Print the scriptures on cardstock. I centered the scripture on the cardstock page then I cut it with a paper cutter to a 4-inch width. Using the entire length of the 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper so I would have plenty of space to roll the dowl onto the paper. I will explain more later. Click HERE if you would like to use my document.
Step 2 – Cut the Dowels, paint and hot glue
Cut the dowels in half using a saw and miter box or a chop saw. Paint the dowel in your favorite DecoArt color. Hot glue the top end of the cardstock onto the dowel. Run another bead of hot glue and roll the paper again forward. Repeat for bottom except- roll the paper backward.
Step 3 – Cut Ribbon, add dowel caps
We will use the ribbon as a hanger. Using your hot glue gun, dab a little glue on each end of your top dowel. Attach your ribbon to the top dowel ends. Slide the little tassel on each end of the top dowel.
Drop a little glue in the dowel cap hole and attach it to the end of the dowel (top and bottom dowel).
Step 4 – Add a little greenery
This step is totally optional but you can add a little bit of greenery to the top or bottom of your Christmas scroll ornament.
How sweet is this? I am really looking forward to hanging these on my tree. Christmas begins in the heart and I think these will help remind us of that.
