DIY THESE MODERN COLOUR BLOCK CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Happy Wednesday ya’ll! We’ve got a super easy (and super cute) festive DIY for you today! If like me, you enjoy getting stuck in to Christmas crafts to make yourself feel more festive then why not give these painted polka dot baubles a go this weekend? Decorating your own tree decs is a sure fire way to add a little YOU to your tree too! And wouldn’t they just made adorable gifts? Here’s how to make them…
YOU WILL NEED:
- Plain baubles (We got ours from amazon)
- Spray paint (We used a selection of 6 different paints from Rustoleum including Hot pink, light pink, blue, purple, yellow & orange)
- Masking tape
- A box or surface that the toothpicks can stick into (I used potatoes for this!)
- A black sharpie
Start by masking off half of one of your baubles, I masked off the bottom half of my first one (making sure to keep the line as straight as possible), then for the next bauble I masked the top half, and then on the next masked vertically down the bauble. Keep doing this until all of your baubles are masked off in different sections so you get a good variety!
Now it’s time to spray paint the baubles! I was finding this part tricky because of the baubles being balls and knowing they would just roll everywhere and ruin the paint the moment I put them down. So, to combat this I got some toothpicks, stuck them in 6 separate potatoes (ha) (a potato for each spray paint colour) and then I popped the baubles on the cocktail sticks a good distance away from each other.
Spray paint a thin layer of paint on each of the baubles and allow to fully dry, then repeat the process to ensure you get a nice good quality coating of paint on each of them.
Once the second coat of paint is dry it’s time to peel away the masking tape and reveal your two tone baubles!
Finally, use a black sharpie to draw polka dots on the white parts of the baubles then allow to dry! Job done!
SO CUTE and easy right?! I’m going to put them straight on the tree! For more Christmas DIYs click here!
