How to make gorgeous greenery-themed ornaments for Christmas!
Hey guys, welcome to day 2 of the week of Christmas ornaments DIYs. In the spirit of easy DIYs, today I’m making DIY winter scene ornaments using some things you can find in your backyard and a few other craft supplies. This would also be a great thing to do with kids who like to hunt around outdoors. And, of course, it’s thrifty, which I love.
Here’s what I used…
- Clear plastic ball ornaments, the kind that can split in half
- DecoArt Snow Tex
- Greenery (pine needles, eucalyptus), twigs, small pine cones
- Small paint brush
And here’s how I made simple greenery-themed ornaments!
Step 1: Cover the inside of one half of your ornament with a solid color. This helps the scene stand out when the ornament is hung on the tree. I used a white faux snow that can be painted on and then sprinkled just a tiny bit of very fine white glitter in.
For some of the ornaments, I put the faux snow on the back half. For others, I did snow on the bottom half of each side.
Step 3: Close the two sides and hang.
