Christmas bauble makeover.

i was going through the decorations in readiness for the tree next week, and spotted some pretty scratched and chipped ones in the bottom. they were plastic so NEVER going to break and i hate throwing things out that are not broken. I decided to give them a makeover by covering them in tissue paper and painting them in a bit of a retro style. So with I used some DecoArt acrylic paint to make retro patterns. Then added a lovely thick coat of triple thick gloss glaze for a nice shine and for good measure added a little glamour dust glitter to make sure they have a bit of christmas sparkle.


  1. What a great idea, I might just look my decorations over and give them a lift, these look wonderful.

  2. Great idea Louise and I love the outcome of the makeover.

    Best wishes

  3. What's clever idea, most people would bin them!
