Homemade Painted Christmas Decorations

9 Dec

The Christmas season is here! I love the way that each household has a slightly different way of celebrating the holidays.  From baking to caroling to watching Christmas movies, everyone has their own special way of enjoying the season.  Is crafting one of your favorite ways to celebrate?  If so, here are a few ways you can bliss out in the next two weeks.

2. Found objects: Find some antique spoons at a local antique store, or even some plain glass ornaments and add your own winter scenes.










3. Unpainted figurines.  Visit your local craft store to find a figurine that matches your home decor, and enjoy painting it with the combination of colors that you love!

4. Think practically.  Would a crate by the fireplace for wood help add a touch of beauty to your living room? What area of your home could use a bit of organization? Identify how you could be crafty and add a practical touch to your home or as a gift to someone you love. (We found this crate at Michaels.com).




We’d love to put some paints in the mail to you today, or you can look for your local Old Village Paint store with the link below.  Merry Christmas! Grab your supplies and get crafty.
