DIY Wood Christmas Ornaments
Using the sphere and semi-sphere from the wooden geometric blocks set (these are the cheapest blocks that I have found in-store OR online) separate the sphere and semi-sphere from the set.
Begin by taping half of the ornament. Then, apply another layer leaving a quarter of the wood exposed as pictured above. Using a foam brush, begin painting in the opposite direction of the tape. This will help leave a clean line by preventing the paint from getting under the tape.
Once dry, paint the other half with a contrasting color.
Remove the ornament cap from an existing ornament. Alternatively, you can use eyehooks and twist them into the top of your wooden ornament.
If using ornament caps, use a hot glue gun and adhere them to your ornament.
Tape your second ornament in half and paint the entire half in a color of your choice. I used metallic silver.
And there you go! What do you think? Would you try these DIY Wooden Christmas Ornaments? As always, if you try any of my Christmas DIY under $20 tips please send me photos!
