DIY Christmas Ornament - #christmasornament

So please don't think I am too crazy when you see this.. I promise it looks lovely in the end. I love to upcycle and reuse things I already have. Unfortunately some of our Christmas ornaments have faded or simply are a bit old. Instead of throwing them out, try to think of some clever ways to reuse them..Here is what I did
I really wanted to give my old baubles some texture so added some rice..
I put a layer of PVA glue (or Elmers glue in USA) over the bauble . I used PVA instead of mod podge as I thought it is thicker so the rice would stick nicer to it.
sprinkle rice over the bauble, then seal with a layer of PVA and let dry. I repeated the step twice to make sure it is all covered. Then simply spray painted in gold, sprinkled some glitter and sealed with acrylic spray.
Hope you like the result!!

    I lost everything in my home last year right before Christmas..its so difficult.

    I love this idea. And in the future I will keep this in mind.

    I love decorating for Christmas. I put up trees in every room almost. Each one had a different theme. I would add to my inventory after Christmas when things were on Sale.

    This is a great idea, I will keep in mind for the future.

    Thanks for sharing
