There is a certain pottery that has taken the farmhouse decorating set by storm. You know what I am talking about right? Those much sought after Rae Dunn pieces that are snatched from the shelves at the home stores before they have a chance to collect a spec of dust. I wanted to recreate some of that look in this years’ Christmas ornaments. Creating your own farmhouse style ornaments is ridiculously easy ! Keep reading and I will show you how to do it.

Farmhouse Style Christmas Ornaments
Here is what you need:
clear glass or plastic ornaments
fine black paint marker
small paper cups
The first thing you want to do is squirt about a quarter of the bottle of white paint inside your ornament after you remove the Then roll your ornament around to completely coat the inside. I just grabbed a couple of 2 ounce bottles of acrylic white paint and if you’re going to do a ton you can buy the larger bottles and they’re still less than two dollars at Walmart. Out of one small 2 ounce bottle I was able to make about six ornaments.
Once you have the inside thoroughly coated flip it upside down onto a small paper cups this will help the drips gather in the cup , it takes awhile for the inside to dry out and I usually let mine drip for about 24 hours. (if you are frugal you can pour the extra paint from your cups back into the bottle and get a few more ornaments from it.)
Turn your dry ornaments right side up to create your words. I wanted mine to look like farmhouse style pottery but I wanted my own handwriting. So I studied the style a bit and freehanded my words right onto the ornament. If you are too nervous about freehanding with the paint pen use a dry erase marker to write out your words until you like the way they look then write over the top with paint pen, when dry the marker will wipe right off.
Take the cap of your ornament and tie a little bow onto the hanger to finish it off.
Add a hook and its ready to go on your farmhouse styled tree.
