DIY Challenge – Decoupaged Clear Ornaments

Welcome to the December DIY Challenge, hosted by Terrie at Decorate and More with Tip. (You can see my past DIY Challenges here.) If you are coming over from Sweet Southern Grace, welcome! Weren’t her ornaments amazing? This month we were challenged to create something with clear ornaments. Here is what I did…

I decided to decoupage my ornaments. I had these fun napkins so decided to use those for my project.

I started by cutting up the napkins into pieces. Then you apply Mod Podge to a section of the ornament and begin gluing them to the ornament.

Just keep gluing your pieces to the ornament until you are satisfied with how it looks.

Continue to put pieces on until it is fully covered. You will have some wrinkles. Here is how mine looked after putting the word JOY on the front.

Here is how they look on a tree. They came out cute.

    I haven’t yet mastered decoupaging, but I have a bunch of ornaments (and napkins) to try it on! Great idea– I’ve pinned it!

    I’ve never decoupaged before Jodi, but this looks like it could be fun! I love the napkin design you chose! Perfect for the beachy-boho vibe that’s so popular! You made this look so easy so of course, I’m going to have to try it!

      It is fun, and there isn’t really a right or wrong way to do it. Give it a try.

    Those turned out really cute, Jodi. They suit your style perfectly. I haven’t done decoupage ornaments yet although I have done it with pumpkins in the fall. I’m gonna have to try some! Thanks for sharing.
