DIY Painted Christmas Ornaments

While our Christmas tree this year is all metallic, I couldn't resist going big on color with these DIY painted ornaments! Of course, I still had to add a hint of metallic with the copper trim. ;)

These started out as brown paper mache ornaments I found for $1 a piece at Hobby Lobby. I loved the variety of shapes and the blank canvas they provided. They are also shatter-proof!

All they needed was a few shades of my favorite Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Craft Paint, and a little copper foil tape to make them shine!

How to Make DIY Painted Christmas Ornaments


1. Tape off the areas you want to paint and use a brush to apply the paint. If you have a steady hand, you can skip the tape! Take one section at a time, moving on to the next once it is dry.

2. Add copper foil tape to trim the ornament, using your finger to smooth it down flat. You're done!
