When I started this blog my idea was to share craft projects that normal, busy people can do, you know, people that don’t have the time to spend all weekend working on a project because actually they’re a bit busy with everything else. My idea was that most things could be done between putting your child to bed and having dinner. Which was great! And then child number two came along and suddenly, that spare bit of time has now been changed to the few minutes between taking the elder one to playgroup, putting a clothes wash on and changing the youngest’s clothes again. But I still really want to do something so these spray painted ornaments should hopefully be something that everyone can fit into those fleeting moments.
For this you will need
Old or second hand ornaments (husband was horrified when I bought these beauties home)
Take your old and slightly grim looking ornaments into the garden and place on your magazine. Do not do this inside as it goes everywhere (as the white patch on my grass can testify). Spray. Voila! Actually I recommend spraying it two or three times to get decent coverage, but each spray will only take you about a minute and you need to leave about 45 minutes between each layer, giving you plenty of time to do the 500 other things on your to-do list. You can now bask in the glory of your unique and cool ornaments, even the husband loved mine when I’d finished! I’ve done mine in a white gloss as that’s what goes in my house but if I could get away with something else then I think neon pink would look amazing! What colour would you choose to spray?
