How to Decoupauge Wood Ornaments With Festive Napkins
I have been wanting to make some new ornaments this year. I have seen all the decoupage projects out there and decided to give it a try. This decoupage wood ornament craft was one of the most fun projects I have done in a while.
Tools and materials:
- Wood ornaments
- White paint
- Crushed glass
- 2-Ply napkins
- Sanding brush
- Distressing ink pad
1. Paint the ornaments white
I bought my wood ornaments at Hobby Lobby and they were a pack of six for 2.99 with another 60% off. I painted each ornament white with craft paint.
2. Add crushed glass to the tops
For the ornament tops, I used crushed glass from Amazon. I wanted to add dimension so I added the glass to the tops of the ornaments to appear like they are vintage.
I applied glue onto each ornament top and then put some of the glass glitter onto them. I used regular school glue but you can use Modge Podge if you prefer.
3. Decoupage the designs onto the ornaments
There are so many beautiful napkins available. I picked up some at the dollar store and Marshall's. Make sure you pick up 2-ply napkins to use because you are going to peel a layer off.
I applied a layer of glue and spread it around with a small paintbrush. Then I cut the section of napkin I wanted and put it onto the ornament and applied another layer of glue to the top.
I brushed all of the bubbles out.
Then use a sanding sponge around the edge it will remove all the excess paper from the ornament.
When they dried I used my distressing ink pad around the edges of each ornament to give them dimension.
5. Add glitter and ribbon
I added glitter onto the tops of each ornament after they dried. Then I exchanged the ribbon that was on the ornament with some homespun ribbon I had.

These decoupage wooden ornaments turned out so pretty. I am going to use them as favors at my cookie exchange.
Love how they look against the flocked tree.
