DIY Pier Post Nautical Ornament

We are back today sharing a DIY pier post nautical Christmas ornament. You know that we love a beachy, coastal Christmas tree. This simple wooden ornament is the perfect nautical touch for a beachy tree or anyone’s traditional tree as well. 

It’s also a really simple ornament to make. It is made from a wooden dowel, but only uses a few inches of dowel for each ornament. So, get yourself a three foot long dowel and make a bunch!

They could look great all over a tree or make great gifts. How cute would this ornament be tied to the top of a wrapped gift?! I love ornaments tied alongside bows and think that this one would be a big hit!
