Supplies you’ll need to make your own DIY Christmas Ornaments:

- Holiday Joy Tree Ornament Blanks (Set of 3)

For this project, I used the pictured ribbon as my color inspiration. That’s the best part of making your own ornaments, you can use the colors that fit best with your Christmas décor!
I started by painting the tree surfaces black. A makeup sponge works well for painting small surfaces, so that’s what I used for this project.
Once the base color was dry, it was time to add stencil details. I used the Holiday Joy Stencil from Bells and Whistles. Both ornament shapes were created to perfectly fit this stencil.
Next, use a makeup sponge to add the gold and white tree details to the tree cutouts.
Once the tree stencils had been applied, I used a toothbrush to splatter coordinating paint colors over the entire surface.
To finish them off, I added twine for hanging. I also added beads to mine. And you know me, I painted my white beads gold to coordinate – cuz I’m a lil’ extra!
Next up are the round ornaments!
I painted these using the same black, white and gold color scheme.
Simply add your base coat color and go in with coordinating colors for the stencil details.
This one has a white base coat with black and gold details.
This next one has a gold base coat with white and black details.
Here are all of my finished ornaments!
PRO TIP: Use these handy loop needle threaders to add beads to your twine. You can get them HERE.

Have fun making and gifting these to all of your friends and family this year!
