It’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted so many days in a row on the blog and I have to admit, I’m exhausted! But, it’s totally worth it because we’re up to day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments! Wow! This Gold Leaf Polka Dot Ornament was actually the first project I did for the series but I’ve spent two weeks trying to get a good picture of it-it was trickier than it looks!
For this ornament you’ll either need a plain white ornament or you can use a clear glass ornament and coat the inside with white craft paint like I did. The polka dots are painted on with a small paintbrush and Martha Stewart Gold Liquid Gilding-I love this stuff (but it stinks something awful!)
This is such a simple DIY ornament but it takes advantage of two of this year’s biggest trends-polka dots and gold!!
