Custom Made Christmas Ornaments in 3 Easy Steps

a simple way to add colour to your Christmas tree

Have you been looking for Christmas ornaments in a certain colour or shade but can't find them anywhere? I had the same problem when searching for red and pink ornaments recently. Instead of giving up, I decided to paint my own. You won't believe how easy it is, or how great they will look!

Magazine Makeover - Turn A Magazine Into A Christmas Tree In Just Minutes


All you need are:

clear glass or plastic ornaments from Michaels
paint {I used Benjamin Moore paint, but craft paint will work too}
ribbon and stickers {optional}
egg cartons for drying

Make sure you completely coat the inside of each ornament with paint before setting upside down to dry. Allow them to dry overnight. If there are any spots that the paint missed, simply pour more paint. Once dry, feel free to add ribbon or stickers for a little fun detail. 

Amazing Christmas Tree Alternatives

I love this red, white, and pink combination. What are the colours you use to decorate for the holidays?

I created these ornaments for a holiday themed segment for Cityline. I shared tips on how to modernize traditional Christmas colour schemes and tons of holiday DIY decor ideas.
