I grew up getting new ornaments every year. So when I got married I had 22 ornaments to take with me! It was a great way to get out tree started on the right foot. I have been making homemade ornaments with a star (one year snowflake) theme for the past couple of years! Here is my this years homemade star ornament!
I started with these amazing glass stars from Ikea (they also have hearts and angels), a spray bottle of water and Looking Glass (Mirror-like paint) from Krylon!
I left the stars in the cases they came in, with the ribbons tucked underneath. First spray it with water! The more you spray the bigger the droplets so it’s all up to you, and what kind of style your looking for.
Then spray a few layers of the looking glass spray RIGHT on top of the water! If you want a more swirly effect you can move your ornaments around at this point. I like the droplet look so I left it like this. Although I wish I had swirled one so I could show you.
And here is the front! Quick and easy!!! I made 12 and they took all of 3 mins MAYBE (that includes shaking the can for a full 2 mins).Ashlee Marie by Email
