For this custom holiday ornament project, we’re featuring Christmas tree ornaments, but you can easily modify this technique for any ornament shapes you like!
To get started on your paper maché tree custom holiday ornament, first basecoat it with white acrylic paint.
While the paint is drying, use scissors or a circle punch to cut out circles from green tissue papers.
Working in sections at a time, use your foam brush to brush a layer of Decoupage onto the ornament. While the adhesive is still wet, press and smooth tissue paper circles onto the section with glue.
Continue brushing on Decoupage and layering green tissue paper circles, layering different shades of green for an ombre effect. Once you’ve covered your custom holiday ornament in tissue papers, brush another coat of Decoupage over the ornament to seal. Let dry completely.
This is such an easy way to create custom holiday ornaments using just a few crafty supplies and Aleene’s Premium Decoupage! What ornaments are you crafting up this season with Aleene’s Glues? Tag us on social @aleenesdiy and share with us!
