I wanted to come up with a new pretty idea for my tree this year and I came up with a few! I will share the others in the weeks to follow.
This ornament is so simple and involves just a few supplies.
DIY Marble Christmas Ornament
- Marble paper cocktail napkins
- Gold leaf pen or Gold leaf liquid
- Sponge brush for application
- Clear craft Christmas ornament
- Disposable small bowls
- Skewer and foam block (this will help during the drying process
- Craft acrylic paint – white, metallic charcoal, and metallic pewter
Lay napkin flat. Then carefully peel the backing off the napkin.
Cut the marble paper napkins into 2-inch strips.
Apply Decoupage medium to craft ornament.
*Use thin even layers of decoupage. Mine got a little thick and I smoothed it out.
Carefully lay marble strips onto the ornament. Gently smooth
Allow to dry and then apply a second coat of decoupage medium. Allow to completely dry.
Gild your marble ornament for a little more glamor. Add a little paint to enhance the marbling. I added matte charcoal metallic and a pewter metallic to give my ornaments flare.
Don’t forget to paint the hanger part of the ornament!
Hang your beauty! I used ribbon to hang my ornaments to show them off. Aren’t they so pretty?
I am so happy with the way they turned out! They are going to be beautiful on the tree this year. Now, get ready for more DIY ornament inspiration from my friends with the Festive Christmas Ideas tour.
