Hi there friends! It’s Rebecca from The Crafted Sparrow sharing a fun take on handmade ornaments. If you love to add a personal touch to your tree each year, or find fun ways to switch the theme up on a budget this project is for you.
I love making handmade ornaments each year for my tree. Year to year I have a new theme for my tree, so hand making some of the ornaments really helps to save money and add the custom look I want. These Black & White Geometric Ornaments are some of my latest.
geometric shaped paper mache ornaments
white acrylic paint
black acrylic paint
foam paint brush
small detail paint brush
copper spray paint (optional)
copper wire or thread (optional)
Start by giving each paper mache ornament a couple coats of white acrylic paint. Set aside and let dry.
Once dry use a small detail paint brush and black acrylic paint to follow the design lines from each ornament shape. Paint carefully to get steady lines. Set aside to dry.
I cut the original gold thread hangers that came on these paper mache ornaments since they didn’t match the theme I was going with, instead I used some copper wire I had on hand to create some new hangers. Just hot glue them into the tops of each ornament.
I also spray painted some wood beads in a couple of sizes. These will go on top and bottom of the ornaments with some hot glue to give it a finished look.
I love how easy these were to make and that I have custom ornaments for my tree without breaking the bank.
