Hi guys! It’s Meg from GreenWith Decor. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Now we can safely decorate for Christmas! I’ve started some Christmas shopping and small projects here and there, but we haven’t gone into full-on decorating mode yet. That changes today. I’m excited to get everything out this weekend!
I have an easy DIY ornament to share today that’s perfect for your favorite baseball or basketball lover.
Here’s what you need for this project:
- Clear ornaments
- Drop cloth
- White spray paint
- Orange spray paint
- Red permanent marker
- Black permanent marker
I love spray paint. I use it on everything from old spaghetti jars to dressers. It’s such an easy way to transform the look of pretty much anything.
Take the ornament toppers out and set aside.
Use white paint for baseballs and orange paint for basketballs. I put gloves on so my fingers wouldn’t get soaked in spray paint.
Spray one side, then let it dry, placing the non-painted side down so you don’t mess up the paint.
Paint the other side, again putting the non-recently painted side down.
Use your judgment if you need a second coat of paint. Again, spray one half of the ornament at a time so each can dry without getting smudged.
Using a red permanent marker, draw the baseball stitches on the white ornament. This is the hardest part of the whole project just because you have to keep your hands steady while you’re drawing on a circle object!
Use a black permanent marker to make the marks on the orange ornament for the look of a basketball.
Put the ornament toppers back in the ornaments.
Hang up and enjoy! Or wrap up and give to your favorite sports lover for Christmas.
