Happy Fri – YAY! It’s been a super busy week, however I’ve taken a few minutes to be a little creative. I’m making DIY Christmas ornaments. Or rather painting ornaments. I found this 12 pack of ornaments at my local Dollar Tree and thought it would be a fun, quick craft.
Base coat the ornaments.
I used spray paint on the ornaments for the base coat.
Gold for the reindeer and snowflakes.
Silver for the stars and white for the snowmen.
Not only will be the base coat give color but these ornaments are very porous.
You will use less of the acrylic paint.
The ornaments were pretty with just the base paints, however we all know I like a little “extra”.
On the snowflakes and the stars I gave the raised area an even coat of Mod Podge.
Add glitter to the top.
Aren’t they pretty?
TIP: I like using the ultra fine Holographic glitter.
It is shiny and just has a little extra sparkle.
I repeated this step on the stars and on the reindeer antlers.
For the snowman I just used acrylic paints to give the snowman color and personality.
The reindeers body received a couple of coats of brown paint on the body.
However, I thought that they looked great just left gold!
The great part about these ornaments is that there are tiny grooves in them that helps you stay in the lines as you paint!
Which makes this the perfect project for all ages.
I can see these ornaments on a tree, on a garland on the mantle or even used as gift tags for presents.
Plus, at $3.00 plus tax for 12 ornaments, it’s a bargain.
They were so fun and easy to makeI think I’ll be buying another set of these DIY Christmas ornaments for the littles to decorate and take home.
Until next time…
