Refresh your Christmas ornaments with COLORSHOT! Instead of spending big bucks on new holiday decorations this year, try upcycling last year’s décor with COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paints. This super simple tutorial from Kristie Lauren will show you how to give your ornaments a fresh coat of color to make a vibrant rainbow Christmas tree!
Protective surface cover
Gather ornaments for this project
Upcycling is a great way to decorate on a budget! Gather the old Christmas ornaments that you’ll be painting and carefully remove any caps and hooks. Use fine-grit sandpaper to roughen any shiny surfaces, then clean your ornaments to make sure they are clean and free of dust and debris.
Spray paint your ornaments.
Place the ornaments onto wooden dowels and move to a well-ventilated area for spray painting. If you don’t have the outdoor space for this project, be sure to lay down a protective surface cover to catch any overspray! Hold one end of the stick and begin spray painting your ornaments, rotating the dowel as needed to evenly cover the entire ornament. Apply several light coats of spray paint until you’re satisfied with the coverage and allow to dry completely.
Repeat to spray paint all of your ornaments.
Repeat step 2 with all of the colors of the rainbow! For this project, Kristie Lauren used Cosmo, Stiletto, Orange Slice, Emoji, With a Twist, Island Girl, and Aromatherapy on their old ornaments for a rainbow Christmas tree. Who knew budget décor could be so colorful?
Decorate your rainbow Christmas tree!
Once all of your spray painted rainbow Christmas tree ornaments are dry, replace the caps and hooks and begin hanging the ornaments on your tree. Christmas budget décor has never been more vibrant, thanks to COLORSHOT!
