How To Make Hand Painted Ornaments With Custom Colors!
Christmas is here in the blogging world friends! I am so excited to start sharing Christmas ideas with you… Today’s is a very easy tutorial on how to do hand painted ornaments with custom colors. When Christmas decorating begins, I always have an idea of what colors I want to work with… But then I find it a challenge to get the exact color I want or in within my budget. So this project comes in very handy! I am joining Kristen from Ella Claire & Co. for today’s post as part of the Seasons of Home series. I love this series so much!
I am really happy to see more stores carrying customizable ornaments these days. I feel like you can find them almost anywhere and they are so affordable! I was able to get these cardboard bulbs for a dollar each and I already had the paint on end.
This may be the easiest tutorial or idea I have shared here… But I just played around with colors until I found the tone I was wanting color wise. Many times I added a little black or brown to the color to make it more muted or a richer tone. And that is it! So easy. I really think the organic look of these is special.
I will not add a ton of color to our tree, but I do like to have some good pops of color here and there!
I wasn’t sure if metallic paint would do well on the cardboard, but it did great!
I am so pleased with these and can’t wait to show you them hanging on our tree!
I am going to start decorating this week and can’t wait to see how it comes all together.
I hope this budget friendly project inspires you to this holiday season!
