Have you ever wanted to know how to make textured Christmas ornaments look like high-end dupes? I have more than one method for you to try.
I know there are many ways to accomplish so many high-end Christmas ornament dupes and I never get tired of trying to find new ways to make them my own!
Last week I made these gorgeous icicle ornaments, and I have a few more ideas to go this season.
Let’s get started with these high-end Arhaus dupes.
Supplies for Making Textured Christmas Ornaments
- Black chalk paint
- Bronze paint
- Baking soda
- Natural sponge
- Thin velvet ribbon
I find that using black chalk paint really adds a beautiful matte finish to these ornaments and screams high-end. Black chalk paint is so versatile in home decor and furniture. It is a classic and I can’t tell you enough how much I love using it in my projects!
How to Make Textured Christmas Ornaments
- Add Baking Soda
Add baking soda to chalk or craft paint. You can use any color combination you like, but I am using black as my base as I am going for a vintage rusty metallic look.
- Paint the baking soda layer
Paint a generous layer of the baking soda mixed paint onto as many ornaments as you want to get done. If your original color can show through, don’t worry about 100 percent coverage. If you don’t want to see the original color, do two coats of black paint.
Even though this one was dark brown I wanted to give it a coat of black for consistency
- Sprinkle with cinnamon
On a few, I had let it dry and dabbed on some bronze metallic paint with a natural sponge, and sprinkled the cinnamon over the bronze while it was still wet. On others, I sprinkled the cinnamon when the black paint was almost dry and brushed it off after everything was dry about 30 minutes later. Both methods worked great.
What do you think? I love how rustic and elegant they are!
