Don’t you just love the shimmer of glittery ornaments at Christmas time? I do! Yesterday while I had my Martha Stewart paints and brushes out I decided to do a glitzy makeover on a few Christmas ornaments I had saved (okay, hoarded) from last year.
First thing I did was cut the twine off of them and pour my paint into a little ceramic bowl.
I painted 3 coats of each color on my ornaments using a small brush. Just 3 quick, light coats on both sides.
After the silver and gold paint had dried, I then added a few layers of glitter paint. I tried two different methods of painting it on. With one I used a foam brush and dabbed the glitter paint on in layers, and the other I used a brush and painted it on.
Both ways worked great, and gave good coverage.
Now my cute birds will go perfectly with our tree decorations.
Disclosure: I received product from Martha Stewart and Plaid Crafts to review.
