The holidays are such a busy time of the year and, of course, not everyone can devote as much time as they’d like to making handmade holiday crafts. Which is why these DIY color-block ornaments are such a great idea—they’re so quick and easy to make, you’ll be able to finish them while the cookies are baking or in time for your in-laws’ arrival. Plus, they’re perfect for gift tags or place cards, too!
Click through for the easy DIY instructions…
• Plain ornaments of your choice (I used these)
• Painter’s tape
• Foam paint brushes
• Craft paint in the colors of your choice
1. Take a thin strip of painter’s tape and tape off a line through the ornament to separate the different colors.
2. Paint each section of the ornament a different coordinating color and let it dry; once dry, remove the tape.
You can add as many or as few colors, stripes, or patterns as you’d like. Of course, sometimes the simplest designs wound up being the most striking. All you need to do is all a length of baker’s twine and hang your ornaments from the tree!
