DIY texture-painted ornaments
Welcome to day 5! Sick of my emails yet? I hope not 🙂 Today I’m sharing a DIY that, to be totally honest, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I love experimenting with new products and techniques, but I’d never worked with DecoArt’s Texture line before.
Turns out it’s pretty forgiving and easy to work with. It’s a high-viscosity, heavy-bodied formula that comes in satin and metallic finishes. I’m working with two metallic colors today, Champagne and Zinc.
What do you think? Pretty cool. DecoArt will be running a special on this paint the weekend of the 24th and the 25th, so definitely mark your calendar to check out the DecoArt’s Texture line then!
Here’s what I used—
- Clear plastic ball ornaments
- DecoArt’s Texture line paint
- Small paint brush
- Paper towels
- Disposable gloves
And here’s how I made DIY texture-painted ornaments!
Step 1: Grab a clear ornament and your texture paint. This paint is thick, so don’t be shy slopping it onto your ornament. Once you get it on, you can work with it a bit to give it some texture.
Step 2: Swish it around to make different patterns. Some I made swirl patterns, while others I did one direction all the way around the ornament. On one, I also grabbed some FrogTape to do a textured dipped effect on the bottom of the ornament.
Step 3: Hang carefully to dry!
What do you think? Pretty cool effect! I was really pleased with how hard the paint dried, too. If you want to add more protection, you can spray the ornaments down with a clear sealer.
