DIY Faux Jadeite Ornaments
I have been collecting jadeite (or vintage green milk glass) for more than twenty years. I fell in love with the milky green color and have been smitten ever since.
Over last two decades the price of jadeite has continued to go up while the supply has gone down. It’s become pretty pricey. That’s why I decided to make my own “jadeite” ornaments this year.
Supplies: Clear glass ornaments, gold spray paint (I used Krylon Metallic), Americana Decor acrylic paint in Pistachio Mint, a funnel and if desired, gold letter stickers (these are Thickers from American Crafts).
Step 1: Remove the metal hangers and spray paint them gold.
Step 2: Use a funnel to add paint inside the ornament. Cover the opening with your finger and swirl the paint around until the inside of the ornament is covered. Let it dry. Replace the hanger.
Don’t you love the color? You can leave the ornaments like this, or add a monogram.
Step 3: Add a monogram sticker if you’d like.
