Vintage (or not so vintage) Christmas ornaments are usually found in thrift stores near the holiday. I grabbed these many years ago, thinking they were bright and colorful.
I'm not so into colorful these days, so I decided to paint them with the Faux Mercury Glass technique. Go bling or go home, I always say.
Some of the Christmas ornaments were pink pointy things, others were shaped like pine cones - and to top it off, two in the shape of bells.
The shiny paint has worn off or faded with the years, so it's time. I know, they're probably worth more left in their original state, but I'm not going to be selling these.
Sticking short bits of wire into a cracker box makes an impromptu paint booth. The first coat didn't look like much, but then the second covered all the shallow spots.
Clustered in a bowl from the thrift store done in the same mirror effect technique these ornaments give a lustre to the collection.
