As you know I have this thing with Christmas ornament balls, and I have them everywhere, even outside! The blue ones I had from last year, all faded in the sun, and I was about to throw them out (gasp!), but then the eco-chick in me screamed No! There’s got to be something I can do! Alas, there was a solution – spray paint! I bought a can from our friendly neighborhood HomeDepot, and spent, honestly, 15 minutes spraying them silver. Voila! Sparkling new ornaments! (I’m now finding myself looking at everything to see if it needs a nice new coat of spray paint! The instant beautification is addictive!)
What you need:
Make sure you buy the right kind of paint, depending on if you are putting them outside or inside. Since mine are going to be hanging outside in the elements, I used Krylon: Fusion Outdoor for plastic.
What to do:
You don’t have to prime them – just go right to painting
Lay your ornaments out onto a dropcloth, in a well ventilated area
Spray away! (hold the can about 8-10 inches away from your target, to prevent dripping)
You may need to spray twice (I found that I didn’t need to)
