Hi Friends! While I was back in Virginia earlier this month for a wedding, my family and I had an early Thanksgiving celebration. It's one of my favorite holidays because it's the one that everyone in my family attends and we just eat and party. Because I wasn't going to be back for real Thanksgiving or Christmas, I thought I'd give everyone a little surprise early holiday gift: painted hand lettered ornaments!
For each family I spelled out everyone's names, including pets, and their family name in my brush calligraphy type. I love how simple they are but still add a nice touch to the Christmas tree. They were a hit!
Want to make your own? All you need is a steady hand, solid ornaments (you can get these at Michael's!), a thin paint brush, and acrylic paint. Want those fun polka dots? I used a toothpick!
They are a little time consuming to make sure you get each letter right, however they dry fairly quickly.
To dry, I set the ornaments upside down in rolls of washi tape. If you have ornament hooks, just hang them up everywhere!
If you're not in the mood to write out letters yourself or you just prefer my handwriting, you're in luck! You can buy these online here or if you're in L.A. and can pick them up in Westchester, you can fill out an order form here.
Keep an eye on this blog because next week I'm giving you 10 days for free printables! Now that Thanksgiving is over, I'm totally in the holiday spirit!
