Holiday craft: Vintage-inspired Christmas ornaments

Six ingenious ways to bedeck, bedazzle and bewitch traditional store-bought tree ornaments into one-of-a-kind family heirlooms.

Whether adorned with iconic festive images or personalized with names, these beautiful Christmas ornaments made with simple freehand drawings offer character and charm.

Personalized shimmery Christmas ornaments

  • Solid-coloured ornaments
  • White paint pen
  • White craft glue
  • Fine paintbrush
  • Opaque white glitter (we used Martha Stewart Crafts Fine Glitter in Carrara Marble)

1 Draw a design on the ornament with a paint pen. Allow to fully dry.
2 Brush craft glue over the design using a fine paintbrush.
3 Sprinkle the glitter evenly over the design. Once dry, gently shake off the excess glitter.
