Striped and dotted ornaments
I like to have Christmas trees in as many parts of my house as possible; nothing brings in the Christmas spirit like a tree. And multiple trees mean you can have theme trees, which is kind of fun.
So I wanted an all gold tree. I was sure I would find gold and white striped ornaments or polka dot ornaments. But, no. At least not within a ten mile radius of my house which is the distance I am willing to go.
So, what's a girl (woman) to do? Make your own.
This idea may have originated with Easter egg dyeing. Unfortunately, these dots do not stick as well as I would have liked.
The end result was not sharp, but a little soft.
See for yourself.
For the striped ones I put rubber bands around the white ornament, then spray painted them gold.
These turned out with a more crisp edge.
This tree sits in the library, where our bar is.
The pot is an old plastic one that I spray painted gold. i stock up on gold spray paint at this time of year.
I want to do a few more ornaments. Even though they are not perfect, I like the effect.
Do you change your Christmas decorating each year? What little changes do you make to update it?
