How was your weekend? Mine was filled with projects, my favorite kind of weekend. I worked on some much needed de-cluttering, and did some crafting.
These DIY Snowflake ornaments were easy to make, and even easier to coordinate with our changed up color scheme.
I started with plain wood snowflakes from Michael’s. They were 50% off this week, so I paid about 60 cents each.
First I painted them with leftover chalk paint. Riveria by Maison Blanche. I’ve used this color throughout my house, so using it for Christmas decor will help everything coordinate.
I didn’t want aqua snowflakes, cuz you know, snowflakes aren’t aqua. Bummer. That would be SO cool.
So I gave them a second coat of chalk paint. A light coat, so the aqua would show through. Oyster, also by Maison Blanche. Also a color used throughout my house.
When the paint was dry, I brushed on a coat of Mod Podge, and then a sprinkling of glitter.
Glitter is very difficult to photograph, did you know that?
I am really excited to hang these on our yet to be cut down tree. I love the look of large graphically shaped ornaments, they make such a statement, and the white will contrast well with the evergreen leaves.
There are so many choices of unfinished ornaments at craft stores, it’s easy to use leftover paint from your home to create beautiful ornaments that fit your decor perfectly.
Have a great Monday!!
