How to repurpose wood curtain rod finials with paint to make them into pretty Christmas ornaments.
If you are a DIY decorator you may have a pair of wood curtain rod finials laying around your basement from an old window treatment. If you have a set that you are not using, they make decorative Christmas ornaments to hang on your tree.
When wrapped in a pretty box they would also make a great hostess gift. If you don’t have any – check out Lowes, Target, and Walmart. Just make sure they are not too heavy. I found my pair at a yard sale this summer.
How to Make a Christmas Tree Ornament Made From a Curtain Rod Finial
- Remove the screw with a pair of needle-nose pliers and replace it with a screw-eye style hook.
You can leave the finials in their original state or paint them. I sprayed one with white gloss and antiqued the other one with gold paint and a tiny bit of glaze.
I let it dry for about 10 minutes and then wiped it off. The paint stays in the crevices and ages the body of the finial. You can spray the eye hook to match the finial. I tied a small piece of ribbon around the top and hung it on the tree with a decorative ornament hanger that I found at The Dollar Tree.
Simple, pretty, and the perfect ornament for a DIY decorator’s Christmas tree.
