DIY Christmas Ornaments

 
Coming up with a creative way to decorate your tree differently every year can be tricky. That is when I came up with the idea of creating your own Christmas ornaments that not only are fun but also add a personal touch. Creating the perfect  black ornament isn’t hard, all you need is a trusty can of black chalkboard paint and a few odds and ends to keep you’re working area clean.
 
Here is a full list of what you will need:

Chalkboard paint
Ornaments
Thread or string
Clothing hangers
Newspaper
Rubber gloves
Chalk 
 
 
Head to your local Canadian Tire and find the size of ornaments you prefer and a can of chalkboard spray paint. When picking out the oraments refrain from using any that have glitter or a lot of texture. You can also reuse old ornaments that you may have in storage.
 


 
Cover you work space with lots of newspaper. Make sure the space is well ventilated, this stuff is strong!


Insert a piece of thread or string where you will insert the hook to hang the ornament on your tree. You will later be hanging these to dry. Hold the tip of the ornament and begin lightly spraying each ornament. I would recommend wearing gloves; chalkboard paint is hard to remove from your hands. When each ornament is finished being sprayed, tie your thread or string to a hanger and hang the hanger in a safe place. Make sure to protect any surface below with a drop sheet or newspaper. When they are hanging they tend to drip.


I left these over night and they were dry in the  morning. Remove the tread or string and insert a ornament hanger. Time to begin writing fun sayings, initials, names or anything that will personalize your tree!
 


 Viola!
