Hey hey you guys! I am so proud of myself for getting this tutorial up for you today. The holidays are CRAZY, right? I made these about a month ago for my Christmas tree and I had good intentions of this being my next post after that, but then it was Thanksgiving and I almost gave up on actually happening. Anyway, I LOVE these gold scalloped ornaments so much that I really wanted to share how I made them for anyone else that might want to! It’s honestly SOOO easy!
Here is what you will need:
If your ornament is already white, congratulations! You don’t have to do the hard part. Haha. I couldn’t find white plastic ornaments and I really needed these to be shatterproof, so decided to buy clear plastic and paint the insides. If yours are clear too, proceed with the next steps:
- Remove the top and squeeze white acrylic paint into your ornament. Cover the opening with painter’s tape and SHAKE your ornament like crazy! (Do this outside or in a garage or something, and don’t wear clothes you care about. Splashing may occur.)
- Let white paint dry. This can take 1-3 days. I knoooowww.
- Tape scalloped FrogTape and straight painter’s tape onto your ornament. Paint the exposed part of your ornament (in between the painter’s tape.) I did three coats.
- Let paint dry thoroughly.
- When everything is dry, remove painter’s tape, replace the top to your ornament and hang on your tree!
See? It really is SO simple with the scallop tape. I have had this tape for years and I’m glad I found a reason to use it again!
I have been getting tons of compliments on these ornaments and people say they wouldn’t have thought they were DIY! (BEST COMPLIMENT EVER.)
