The supplies you’ll need to create your own set of ornaments includes:
- Wooden Ornaments
- Chalk Couture Pumpkin Patterns Transfer
- Bright White Chalkology Paste
- Extra Fine Glitter
- Dixie Belle Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel Stain
- Small Paint Brush
- Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Cotton
For the first ornament in my set, I used the pattern pictured below. Notice that I first stained this one using Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel.
Also keep in mind that I taped off part of the top portion of the ornament so that I could add a solid coat of paint to it once my pattern had been applied.
To begin, place the transfer on the ornament surface.
Then, add a coat of the Bright White Chalkology Pasted using a small squeegee.
Apply a thin layer of the chalkology paste across the entire surface that you want covered with the pattern. Be sure to remove any excess paste and add it back to your jar for later use.
Once you are finished applying the paste, remove then transfer and cover the wet surface with a thick layer of extra fine glitter.
Once the surface has been covered with a layer of glitter, press the glitter into the paint to ensure even coverage. Then tap away the extra glitter to reveal the finished product.
Next, I chalked on a wooden ornament that I painted white.
I repeated the chalking process explained above and again added a layer of glitter to the wet paste.
This technique creates a pretty white-on-white look.
To finalize all of my ornaments, I painted the top portions that I had taped off with some Cotton Dixie Belle Chalk Paint. Then, I added a layer of glitter to the very top circle for extra sparkle.
You can also add other fun touches like painting the the bottom tip and adding a glitter accent.
As you can see, I was able to re-use the Pumpkin Patterns Transfers to create a lovely set of wood Christmas ornaments for my tree.
