Yes, it is September and Halloween is next month, but Christmas is in the stores and will be here before you know it!!!
Have you ever wanted a color theme Christmas Tree? Go to the store and find that it would cost $4 to $5 or more per ornament, return home and put up the same decorations from last year? You are not alone. At $4 that would be $200 plus tax for 50 ornaments... YIKES!
Last week I was at the craft store and found ornament blanks for sixty-nine cents that are usually used with acrylic paint. You heard right SIXTY-NINE CENTS and they weren't on sale! I thought I would try painting them with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers, with a touch of Terri Sprouls Ultra Fine Glitter.

Ornament Blanks - Craft store (Michael's)
Working on a craft sheet, I mixed Crystal Lacquer with Gold and Tanzanite mixers in separate pots. Then painted the base of the ornaments one color and the topper the opposite.
Yes, I painted the back side of the ornaments.
I am so happy with the results! I can make a theme color tree with 50 ornaments for $34.50 plus tax and a few supplies: Sakura Crystal Lacquer, Terri Sproul Mixers and Ultra Fine Glitter for less than half the price! If your store has one of the coupons that is 40% off the total sale that would be a really have a great deal.
These are now ready for a bow and a tree!
The possibilities are endless. Your creativity is only limited by your imagination...
Just imagine what you could do with
