Easy to make Christmas Ornaments

supplies needed:

  • A section of a faux evergreen garland
  • Gold spray paint
  • Gold glitter
  • Small gold beads

1. Snip three sections of greenery from a fake evergreen garland and twist the ends together to make a circle.

2. Spray the greenery heavily until it is totally covered with gold spray paint. I used Rust-Oleum’s Metallic line. It produces a very bright gold finish on any surface.

3. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle gold glitter over the entire thing and let dry.

4. Once dry, hot-glued gold beads to resemble ornaments and then tie a ribbon onto it to hang. 

I am going to use it for a Christmas tree ornament, but you can also use it to hang from a cabinet or doorknob, or an embellishment for a present depending on the size you make.

    Best wishes,

  6. Hi Diane, I went to FIDM in Los Angeles and studied a bit of visual merchandising, but I majored in the business part. I worked in retail and never made it into buying (that was my goal) but I can remember listening to Christmas music forever. I don’t want to hear any thing Christmas till close to Thanksgiving. My mom didn’t decorate till Christmas Eve while we took naps cause we would celebrate that night since we’re Swedish. Now she decorates after Santa Lucia Day because she and her Lodge share a Christmas tree. They put it in their truck with flags and straw ornaments and everything. She is 80 so I think it’s wonderful that she is so involved with her Lodge and stuff.

    Anyways, I read your blog almost every day and I hope the next few months go smoothly for you.


    1. Hi Katherine-

      Thanks for leaving such a wonderful comment. I love to hear all about my readers. When I was a kid my parents did not decorate the house until Christmas Eve after my brother and sister’s, and I went to bed. When we awoke on Christmas Morning – usually by 6AM or earlier – the tree would be up, the house transformed and lots of presents under the tree. It was magical. My parents stayed up all night getting it completed. When we became teenager’s and no longer believed in Santa the decorating started earlier. Still it was fun coming home from school and seeing the house all decorated. It really amped up our our excitement for Christmas.

  7. I’m so happy to have you back!!! Your bows are beautiful as always! :)
    I wish I could help you with Christmas I’d much rather do that then all the “stuff” I have to get done! lol

    1. I wish you could come and help me. It would be nice to have 2 extra hands and a buddy to work with. Good luck with your to-do list.

    2. I might just grab you to help me heft the trees onto the cosmetic ledges if Mike is not around.

  8. So cute….but I am soooo not ready to even start thinking about Christmas:):):) I am just wishing winter never had to happen!

  9. I think Im going to make some of these this year! I wouldnt have ever thought about spray painting them; thanks for the idea!

  10. Thanks for the explanation about decorating so early. The trees look beautiful. I love the gold wreath you made. I’ll have to check out the bow making tutorial because I cannot make bows! I don’t mind seeing the holiday stuff now, because I don’t really “see” it, if that makes sense. I just ignore it until the first of November. I don’t know how you keep the holiday spirit fresh for so long.

  11. Looks great Diane! I always love going into Elder Beerman and getting festive! Great little wreaths and this is something I could do, so thank you!

  12. Well, THAT explains why Christmas decorating shows up earlier and earlier in Bonton stores! After doing all the store displays, I can’t imagine how you find the energy to do your home decorating. I whine about having to drag up 6 Rubbermaid tubs of stuff from the basement!

    1. Hi Suzan-
      It does take some effort for me to enjoy decorating my own tree, but I love the holidays so I truly try to make the best effort I can. I have simplified the process and only put up the things I love or are nostalgic. Everything else stays in the storage boxes.

  13. I can’t look, I can’t look LOL I haven’t put out my fall stuff yet. I need to get planning like you do.

    1. Hi Stephanie-

      I only plan when I am at work because I have deadlines. I decorate my own house after Thanksgiving.
