Now that Thanksgiving is over I am excited to share the start of Chistmas season for me!  Every year I like to make new ornaments for the kids.  I also do an ornament exchange with my girlfriends and love to personalize them. This year is no different and I am excited to bring on Christmas and Holiday Cheer!

I decided to keep it fun and easy this year……and inexpensive!  I picked up these paper mache ornaments for only $1/each at Michael’s.


I wanted to turn them into personal chalkboards to write messages to my kids leading up to Christmas….




  1. Paint Edges of ornament with Americana Multi-Surface Satin
  2. Paint To and Back Faces of Ornmanet with DecoArt Chalkboard Paint
  3. Decoupage edge and dust with glitter
  4. Doodle on ornament once Dry


Finish off with personalizing fun messages in Chalk.  You can change the messages daily…perfect for those special people in your life.


So simple and I will be making more for my ornament exchange this year to give my special friends a personal messgae on every ornament along with marking the year.  These also make great gift tags that can be hung on the tree!

In honor of this ornament fun DecoArt is hosing a GIVEAWAY!!!

It is going to be a great Christmas!  I have decided to make sure that all my decorations are fun and easy to make this a stress-free holiday season!  Thanks DecoArt for making that possible!  I will be making lots of handpainted Christmas presents this year!
