DIY Color Blocked Ornaments + Giveaway
I may have went a little holiday crazy last week and bought about 60 white ornaments. I know, it’s ridiculous, but I’m happy to say that for today and tomorrow I’ll be teaming up with Montana (you may remember them from this, this, and this project from a bit back) to show you how to decorate plain ornaments to make your tree pop! First up, easy color blocking you can do in about 15 minutes:
Montana will also be giving THREE readers all the paint supplies you’ll need to complete this and tomorrow’s project (6 cans of paint + 6 markers!), so keep reading to enter the giveaway below!
Take the caps off your ornaments and insert a bamboo skewer. This will help keep your hands free while you spray paint the bulbs one solid color all the way around. The GOLD colors are so rich and smooth that you don’t really have to worry about the colors bleeding or not showing up when layered.
Spin the bulb slowly as you paint. Instead of creating a harsh line with tape, I mimicked the technique from my 10 minute vase project and let the paint naturally speckle up the sides of the ornaments. You may want to wear gloves for this step because it will get on your hand!
They almost looks like candy, don’t you think? Now for the extra fun part– the Giveaway! Open from now until December 10th at 5:00pm PST. Open to US & Canada residents. You can enter multiple times, so be sure to come back tomorrow! Best of luck :)
