Striped and dotted ornaments

I like to have Christmas trees in as many parts of my house as possible; nothing brings in the Christmas spirit like a tree. And multiple trees mean you can have theme trees, which is kind of fun.
So I wanted an all gold tree.  I was sure I would find gold and white striped ornaments or polka dot ornaments.  But, no.  At least not within a ten mile radius of my house which is the distance I am willing to go.
So, what’s a girl (woman) to do?  Make your own.


This idea may have originated with Easter egg dyeing.  Unfortunately, these dots do not stick as well as I would have liked.
The end result was not sharp, but a little soft.
See for yourself.
For the striped ones I put rubber bands around the white ornament, then spray painted them gold.

These turned out with a more crisp edge.


This tree sits in the library, where our bar is. 

The pot is an old plastic one that I spray painted gold.  i stock up on gold spray paint at this time of year.

I want to do a few more ornaments.  Even though they are not perfect, I like the effect.
Do you change your Christmas decorating each year?  What little changes do you make to update it?
Bunnyhill Cottage is the name of my first blog.
