This concha ornament DIY is a quick, cute project to add some sweetness to your Christmas tree!
I’m dreaming of a sweet Christmas! So far I’ve made lollipop ornaments and cotton candy ornaments. Now my sweet tooth has turned to conchas! If you’re not familiar with this pan dulce, it is a Mexican sweet bread that is very popular locally. The round bread has a white sugary topping that resembles a sea shell, which is where the name comes from. Concha means “shell” in Spanish. This popular treat is perfect for a round ornament DIY project!
Supplies Used for this Concha Ornament DIY
This was a quick craft I made late on a Friday night, so there aren’t any step out pictures. It’s really easy to make though! First I opened the craft ornaments and painted each half with white craft paint. Set it aside to dry completely.
I created the cut file that you can use and resize as needed to fit your ornament. Cut the concha from the vinyl. Weed the vinyl, then use transfer tape to move the design to the ornament. The curved surface can be a little tricky, so adjust the pieces as needed.
Put the ornament halves together. Add a bit of string to the ornament and hang it up to enjoy!
