By now you know just how much I love making handmade ornaments each year for my tree. Since I usually pick a new theme or color palette each year hand making some of the ornaments really helps to save money and add the custom look I want. These DIY Black & White Geometric Ornaments are some of my latest.
geometric shaped paper mache ornaments
white acrylic paint
black acrylic paint or black permanent marker (you choose which to use)
foam paint brush
small detail paint brush
wood beads (optional)
copper spray paint (optional)
copper wire or thread (optional)
If you decide that the fine detailing painting just isn’t your thing, you can use a black permanent marker and just carefully draw the lines. Whatever way you choose to do it will be perfect.
I cut the original gold thread hangers that came on these paper mache ornaments and instead I used some copper wire I had on hand to create some new hangers. Just hot glue them into the tops of each ornament.
