Painted Ornaments

These painted ornaments are the perfect holiday craft. They are super easy, so you can mindlessly paint while you watch Elf. You get to work with your hands and choose fun paint colors but you only have to put in a little effort for a great result.

Materials Needed: Thick acrylic paint, paper mache ornaments, Paint brushes, Paper plate (for palate)

All photography by Paul Ferney for Oh Happy Day
Art Directed by Jordan Ferney
Crafting by Caitlin Barker + Irene Yu

    This is great too because if you change your color scheme every year you can just repaint. Cheers – CT

    Super modern + super chic! And a project that anyone regardless of artistic skill can pull off. Reminds of the Themis Mobiles from Artecnica. Thanks for sharing!
