Hi everyone !! This is day three of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge. Today’s project is a lovely Christmas tree ornament for your tree.
As you know I love to upcycle and reuse things I already have. Unfortunately some of our Christmas ornaments have faded or simply are a bit old. Instead of throwing them out, try to think of some clever ways to reuse them..
Here is what I did….
I took these old golden Christmas ornaments and decided to make them new again! I used some PVA glue to cover the bauble.
I then sprinkled some rice over to cover it all. YES you read it right.. I put rice on a Christmas ornament, but please BEAR WITH ME… I promise the end result is worth it…
I had to put a layer of PVA to seal it and then repeat the step to make sure the area was fully covered.
When it was drying it reminded me of Raffaelo sweets! 🙂
I then simply spray painted the bauble with gold spray paint (everything looks better in gold – its a FACT! 🙂 ) and added some sparkle by sprinkling some gold and irridescent glitter. To seal it I used some clear Acrylic spray.
What do you think?? Such a simple idea but the baubles are as new and even more beautiful than they originally were, don’t you think??
On the…. 3rd Day of Christmas Evija made….. CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS!!!!!
I am also taking part in the Preloved Thrifty Christmas Competition!
