Today, I’m hosting a fun DIY Ornament Challenge! Don’t forget to check out the other bloggers, at the end of my blog!!
DIY Christmas Ornaments have commenced! It is something I look forward to every year and I think I may just make this an annual Christmas tradition on my blog!
Over the years, I have made DIY ornaments, almost every Christmas! Sharing my first DIY ornament below as a child and also sharing my DIY ornaments that I’ve made throughout the years with all four of my daughters.
I think my love of diy actually started with my mom. I always remember opening her linen closet and just looking at all of her DIY craft supplies! One year for my birthday, I had a few friends over and we made DIY stained glass ornaments. Still hang those two ornaments on my tree, every year.
I started making ornaments to be frugal in the first years of our marriage. I enjoyed it so much, I continued almost every year, for the past 25 Christmases!
This year, I decided that my youngest two daughter’s Christmas tree ornaments needed to coordinate with their room more, so…I decided to test a couple ornaments with my diy baking soda paint!
I started off with some vintage ornaments that I purchased from my friend, Sarah, who owns a small shop, Sweet Cards Shop.
I decided to use Sherwin Williams Orchid to paint on the ornaments as the base coat.
Next, while the ornament was still wet, I added baking soda, sprinkling it on and kind of tapping the paint brush around with the baking soda. If the bright pink started showing through, I just dabbed on a bit more paint! If it doesn’t look good, just wipe it off and try again!
Next, I used some leftover gold craft paint, that I had left over from our Barndominium Dollhouse, to paint the ornament cap.
Hang with a vintage ribbon like me or a velvet ribbon would be pretty too! So simple and fun to add to your Christmas tree this year! Customize your color, based on the colors you are using for Christmas this year! I bet you have left over paint that you can use too! I chose this color because I wanted it to coordinate with their room!
I hope y’all enjoyed our DIY Ornament Challenge this year! Please check out my blogging friends to see the Christmas ornaments they have created to share with y’all!
