Felt like having a White Christmas this year, so I went kinda overboard with decorations :P
Bought a new warm white Christmas lights, some new white and red ornaments for the Xmas tree and bought some Christmas ornament crafts from Riot Art & Craft store to decorate around the house! (the paper ornaments weren't expensive, they were only 2-3 dollars each!)
Initially, I bought them just to paint them in white. Just for the fun of it really because I haven't been painting for a long long time. Bought some round ones, star shape, tear shape and a reindeer! Picture above was me painting the reindeer in white last week! I uses Jo Sonja White paint on them.
Tadaa!! All white!
Honestly, after painting them.. I don't really like the outcome of it because it looks patchy and it kinda brings the look down a bit.. I want it to look classier.. think of it for a while and I thought hey! I can cover them with white sand or something!
Okay.. where can I can white sand?? Any beach here in Perth has white sand? haha It is going to be so difficult.. hahahaha so I changed my plan to have the glitters instead. Probably a cheaper option too! :P
Sticking the glitters together :)
It's pretty easy thing to do, probably it's just a bit messy. Just get some craft glue, brush & cover all over it then dab the glitters to it. Then hang and let it dry.
Tadaa!! All done! All painted and covered with glitters!
Can't really tell a difference in the photo but in real life, it looks much better!!
But then I thought.. I can do more to it.. it looks quite plain.. they need some colours don't you think?
So I went to my crafts bag (Yeap, my bag full of art stuff that I have since young) and dug out some ribbons!
I think ribbons is the best way to give the ornament a little lift!
A scarf for the reindeer!
Some ribbons on the others! I even have feathers on one of them!
Yay!! All done!!!
My favourite is the one with the feather and candy cane! But my friend seems to like the round one with the blue ribbon :D
Can't wait til Christmas!!! I think I'm gonna play Christmas songs everyday from now.. :D
Have you decorated your Christmas Tree yet? :)
