DIY: Ornament Recycling

Photo by Mother Earth Living.

If you have some old glass ornaments up in your attic, it's time to give them a facelift. With a little crafting, you can have a brand new tree! Instead of trashing old glass ornaments, you can add color and texture that will bring new life to your decorations. Here's what you need:

Glass ornaments

Assorted pieces tissue paper and lightweight gift-wrap

A small paintbrush

Mod Podge decoupage medium

 

Start by tearing narrow strips of wrapping and tissue paper. Torn edges blend most easily and make a smoother surface.

Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the globe and attach a paper strip.

Add another stripe of Mod Podge next to the paper strip being sure to overlap  the paper you've applied. Continue until globe is completely covered.

If your background paper is solid, you could add small pictures from greeting cards and vintage paper, as we have here.

Allow to dry for several hours or overnight, and then add another layer of  Mod Podge to seal the surface and add a gloss.
