Every year I try to do some DIY ornaments. Last year I did the marbled ornaments. This year I did what I am calling a snow splatter ornament and it was super easy. These ornaments help add a little texture and interest to my all white tree. Here are the steps.
Step One: Gather Supplies
For this DIY, I used the clear plastic craft ornaments that you can find at Michaels and other stores, white paint, liquid matte medium, a spray bottle, and an empty box.
Step 2: Mix It Up
For this step, I mixed everything up in a cup and then poured it into an empty spray bottle. I mixed white paint, a little matte medium, and a little water until I had a consistency that would pour, but wasn’t runny. This is the tricky party. You need your paint to be liquid enough to go through a spray bottle, but not liquid enough to run off the ornament after you spray it.
Step 3: Spray The Ornaments
I simply held the ornament down in an empty box with one hand and sprayed paint on it with my other hand. The box just collects all the over spray. I used a pretty big box so I could hold the spray bottle a good distance away from the ornament because I wanted the paint to look splattered.
Step 4: Dry The Ornaments
I had this ornament tree I wasn’t using, so I hung my wet ornaments on it to dry. That way I didn’t have to lay them down. I did as many as would fit on the ornament tree and let them dry and then I did another batch.
Step 5: Hang The Ornaments
Finally, I hung these ornament on the tree. I think they added texture and interest to my white tree. What do you think?
