DIY Monogram Ornament

December 19th, 2012

Would you believe I’ve never done a DIY ornament post? So weird! This is an easy one, and it would make a cute gift. All you need is a boring ornament you want to monogram-ize, puffy paint, and spray paint.

If you choose a matte finish ornament like I did, you can draw your design straight on with a pencil before applying the puffy paint (and erase if you mess up). If your ornament has a glossy finish, try using a sharpie or dry erase marker to pre-draw the design. Next apply the puffy paint. Be careful not to smudge it!

Let the paint dry.

Then remove the metal top of the ornament, apply a coat or two of spray paint, let it dry, and put the top back on. Done!

You could even skip the monogram and just cover the ornament with dots or another pattern.
