My tree all the past years has been lime green and orange....yes I know odd colors but I get them at an after Christmas sale for so cheap. I decided this year I wanted a Green and Red tree.... my orange ornaments are big ones....So I decided to spray paint them, glitter them and add rhinestones!! You could really do this to any ornament as long as it has a smooth surface so the glitter and paint will stick!!
here is before....
I just used a spray paint that will stick to plastic
Once the spray paint dried I sprayed the ornament with a spray adhesive and sprinkled my glitter. For glitter I found that the brand Sugar Coating worked the best. Once the glitter was all over I sprayed it again with the spray adhesive to hold the glitter on a little better.
I then added my rhinestones. The believe above I purchased at a scrapbook store and for the star i just put them on like that myself!!!
For this fun one I got double sided adhesive tape...again from the scrapbook store and added white glitter. I love how much it added...and it is different!!
