Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
I’m at it again with another coastal ornament!! I almost have my coastal Christmas tree COMPLETE!!
This one was a really easy, quick and inexpensive ornament to make. My three favorite things! I literally paid .50 cents for each anchor you can’t beat that, right?!
I picked up my anchors, glitter and paint at Michaels. The turquoise color is part of my Christmas color theme and I just love it. I’ve been adding touches of it throughout all my holiday decorating this past year.
Step 1 – Paint Your Anchor
I painted two coats on my anchors. Like I said this Key West is my favorite color paint and it’s usually $1.00 a bottle, total bargain!
Step 2 – Add Your Glitter
While the last coat of paint is still wet I sprinkled my glitter on top. See how easy this is!!
Step 3 – Add Ribbon
Now it’s time to finish off the ornament with your ribbon. I originally had this polka dot ribbon but I thought it kinda gave a nautical baby shower vibe.
So I ended up changing it to a red ribbon for a Christmas-y vibe. I thought the red ribbon looked a lot better.
Gotta love that sparkle in the ornament!
Step 4 – Finishing Touches
I had a couple other coastal theme wooden pieces I pulled out too! I think the crab is super cute!
I wish I had a little Santa hat to put on top. I could have called it “Santa Claws“! Maybe I can still find one.
I’m totally digging the look of these ornaments and like I said they were super cheap to make!
It has really been exciting getting the house ready for Christmas this year. Trying to get a whole new theme together has been fun. I’m so glad I decided to do a coastal theme.
I still love my regular Christmas ornaments BUT my kids are still in the toddlers stages and I’m a little scared they will get broken. I’ve invested a lot in the ornaments and I would hate to see them get broken.
This Santa is one of my favorites. I was experimenting last year with bokeh. So next year I’m hoping to have my regular tree back up.
But this year I’m enjoying my coastal Tree. Hey maybe next year I’ll put two trees up!
What’s your Christmas theme this year?
