{What You Do}

Start by cutting your painters tape into strips.

Wrap the tape around the ornaments creating different shapes and patterns. Make sure to smooth the edges down completely so there’s no seepage. (Sidenote: The word seepage is the opposite of a great word, and I encourage you to not use it in conversation today. Or better yet, use the word, and watch the person’s face crinkle-up.)

I found some reinforcement stickers in my (extremely organized) junk drawer, so I covered an ornament with those for a polka dot pattern.

The glitter spray is actually clear with specks of glitter in it…not the look I was going for. So I gave the ornaments a quick layer of gold paint, then followed it up with the glitter spray. It really takes gold to the next level of bling!

It’s hard to see in pictures, but there’s a lovely reflective quality to it…but no glitter mess! I think these resemble Kate Spade’s gorgeous ornaments…without Kate Spade’s price tag.

We hung them with black and white striped ribbon to coordinate with the rest of our color-blocked tree.

Are you crafting anything these days? Don’t you love pulling out the homemade ornaments every year?

Christmas has that effect on me….

Have a lovely day where ever you are
