My dear friend and fellow blogger Amelia over at You Can Always Start Now just published a post on twirling and pivoting and doing and enjoying crafts even if they are for kids. She loves to explore all the possibilities. Go over and read her post (linked above) to fully understand why I am sharing this with you. She always has the greatest ideas and today I found myself in the store that starts with $$ and ends with what rhymes with drama…and found the cutest little craft kit tucked in among the kids crafts.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 9
Welcome to Day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019. This is my 6th year in a row bringing you 12 Days of Christmas from A Wandaful Thing. Today’s Pinterest inspired idea are these cute DIY Dollar Tree Enamel Ornaments. Adding a custom look is quick, simple and easy. You can pick up these ornaments for $1.25 each at the Dollar tree and they come already adorned with burlap and pine cones.
All that was needed to make these look like vintage enamel ornaments was a black Sharpie permanent marker and some ribbon.
It was pretty easy to make these ornaments look like vintage enamel, you simply add black marks with the Sharpie in areas where you think they would naturally wear. If you own any vintage enamelware take a look at where it has worn over the years and you will get the idea of how to make it look aged.
My inspiration came from one of my favorite YouTuber’s The Daily Diyer, you can watch her youtube video here.
These were so fast and easy to make and would look great on any Christmas tree, used as an embellishment on a gift or put in a dish and displayed as Christmas decor.
It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event.
Here is a recap of the Wandaful Things in 12 Days of Christmas 2019 so far:
