Dollar Store Christmas Ornaments Transformed with Frozen Paint
and the Story of Bobby!
This project was super fun and so easy!
Turn these simple, plastic ornaments into beautiful decorations that look like hand-carved, weathered-wood, to either give as gifts or keep for your own tree, without breaking your budget.
For more detailed step-by-step instructions, as well as the funny story behind the mystery man in my videos, you can watch my YouTube VIDEO by clicking HERE. I reveal some funny details about my friend Bobby, who likes to stay behind the scenes. You’ll never see his face, but I hope to reveal his amazing heart and how he helped me & my business stay alive!

For this project I used the following supplies:
DIY Paint- Weathered Wood
DIY Paint– Mermaid Tail
DIY Paint- Mint Chip
DIY Paint- Bohemian Blue
DIY Paint- Old 57
DIY Paint- Petticoat Pink
DIY Paint – Clear Wax
Putty Knife, Spatula, Rubber Squeegee or old credit card
I went to the dollar store to find affordable items to DIY for my house. I found these plastic ornaments that were 2/$.99!
Start by putting a base coat of Weathered Wood over the entire surface and allow to dry. DIY adheres to plastic, because it is clay-based.Clay is the main ingredient in DIY Paint. If you let it sit out, it starts turning back into clay. You can pour it onto a plate and let sit out overnight or put the paint into the freezer until it thickens. Use a putty knife, spatula or old credit card to spread random layers of paint colors onto your surface. Experiment with different colors and allow each coat to dry in between.
After allowing to dry completely, sand back the layers to reveal all of the colors underneath. Then begin to apply a mix of Clear and Dark Wax over the top, working into all the crevices and then wipe the excess wax off with a dry cloth. This sets the paint and brings all the colors to life.
