Christmas tree ornament supplies

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!

Step 2

Basecoat ornament with paint

To get started on your paper maché tree custom holiday ornament, first basecoat it with white acrylic paint.

Step 3

Cut out green circles

While the paint is drying, use scissors or a circle punch to cut out circles from green tissue papers.

Step 4

Glue tissue paper circles onto ornament

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.

Step 5

Seal with another coat of Decoupage

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.
