{Inspired} DIY Christmas Decor

The other day I was perusing my some of the blogrolls of my favorite blogs when I landed on Hi Sugarplum! Cassie's got great style and a seemingly stellar personality.

I've been in a little bit of a DIY dryspell but Ms. Cassie pulled me right out of it! Her post on DIY Tie Dye ornaments made my almost-6 month pregnant self head out to Michael's to pick up all of the necessary supplies.

It probably helped that her tree was decorated in pink and so is mine. : )

The only supplies you need are some glass ornaments and paint color of your choice. I stayed in the pink family to complement our already pink, silver, and white tree.

I scored the ornaments on sale at Michael's for $3 bucks I think. I can't recall the cost of all three paints but I do know I have enough left over to make possibly one or two more ornaments.

I'm sure there could be a method to the madness for this DIY project but I just squirted some paint into the ornament and rolled it around until the whole inside was covered.

Once they were all finished I hung them on the tree immediately. I'm definitely pleased with the way they turned out.

Scoutie Bear was less than impressed and was only concerned with waiting for her daddy to get back from the store. She's obsessed with that husband of mine.

Got any DIY decor? As always, I'd love to see it!

Your dog is too much! Cute ornaments! Pink is the one color that's not allowed in our house. :P

Those are awesome! Gosh I wish I could get away with more pink (one of the many things I miss about living with my girlfriends in college!). On another note, 6 months pregnant, eeek! I'm getting excited for you!

Oooh, gorgeous ornaments & stunning tree! Love that Cassie for her idea & you for the execution of said idea.

Can D have a talk w/ Mr. FC on how a hubby should let his wife have full decorating reign (pink should always be allowed)? Your man is the best.

Hope you're well & don't forget to pamper yourself! =]

These look so pretty. Love the mixture of colors. My old college roommate and I made these last year. I love them and you can really personalize them for any tree.

Oh, I just saw that on pinterest and was going to do it with my daughter. Already have the paints, just need the ornaments. Hope ours turn out as cute as yours!

thanks so much for the shout-out...so glad you were inspired by our DIY! Those ornaments are so cute! I think I'll load up on those ornaments after Christmas so I can choose a new color next year.

Great to find your blog...looks like we have a lot of blogger friends in common! :)
