Christmas is almost here. Have you decorated a tree this year? I'm sure it looks beautiful!
Mine does too as I became an avid collector of ornaments and a maker (some times) and I'm a fan of all the sparkles, lights and glitz. Every year my tree is bursting with ornaments, so I'm thinking soon I will have to rotate. This year I stumbled upon an inexpensive, unique and super easy DIY project to utilize old unwanted stamps and old ugly ornaments... I just felt too sad to throw both away so I gave them a second life.
You will need:
1. Old ugly glass ornament
2. Vintage used stamps
3. Small foam brush
4. Mod Podge High gloss finish
Step 1. Remove the metal part from the ornament. Apply a small amount of Mod Podge onto the surface starting from the top.
Step 2. Start gluing stamps one by one, pressing them to the surface with fingers. Make sure there're no creases. Work your way to cover entire ornament with stamps, overlapping the edges.
Step 3. Once all stamps are in place, set the ornament on sturdy object and apply a second coat of Mod Podge covering the entire ornament. You are DONE. Let dry for 2 hours. Reattach the metal piece. The new upcycled ornament is ready to adorn your tree!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
