Chalk Painted Metal Christmas Ornaments9:31:00 PM
When you find it... grab it!
Even if it is no where near Christmas...
I found this pile of metal ornaments at the thrift store.
they will be perfect for the craft fair I'm doing next weekend!
They were originally marked $10.00 each...
Lucky for me, they were only $1.00 each now.
I'm not sure where they were from
but for that price they must have been something special!
But not as special as I knew they could be...
I gave the ornaments two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
in Old Ochre.... Chalk paint because it sticks to metal.
I originally painted on metal ornaments when I
made these very popular tin ceiling hearts last year.
When the paint dried I attached a string and a tag.
They came out adorable!
And I bet you are wondering about that
it is a wooden mug hanger from the thrift store.
The stand was $1.00 and with
a couple coats of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint
in Ironstone and a pretty glass knob attached to the top,
it has a new life as a great place to display my ornaments.
Homeroad will be at the Harborfields Library
Craft Fair next weekend!
November 13 & 14
