Happy Monday, I’m back with another simple and fun Christmas ornament idea. I love the way these glittered ornaments turned out and they couldn’t be simpler.
I’ve been thinking about the tradition of gold coins at Christmas this tradition stems from the gift of gold given to the Christ child from the wise men. I wanted to create a nod to that tradition and thought of these wonderful gold and glitter circles. The snowflakes were just too cute to pass up so I ended up making both. I live mixing and matching different colored ornaments and both expensive and DIY stuff together to make a one of a kind tree filled with Christmas memories.
- Unfinished wood circles and (I found mine at Michaels)
- Craft Paint
- Elmer’s Glue
To make the golden coins paint your circle with gold paint. Mine took a few coats to get nice even coverage. Before the last coat I took very fine sand paper and sanded the entire ornament smooth. Once dry I covered one side in glue and sprinkled with glitter set aside to dry and shook off the excess. Finally add a string to the top of the ornaments and hang.
Finally string them up with festive ribbon and hang from the tree.
