I found myself in Target looking at their Christmas decorations and I came across an amazing ornament set. This is a nativity ornament set and I want to use them to create a hanging nativity scene.
This is an 8 piece ornament set for $15.00.
Some other supplies that I’ll be using are:
1. One 16” x 20” canvas
2. Black chalky finish paint
3. Flat Black spray paint ( optional)
4. Paint brush
6. Wire cutters
7. Hot glue
8. Walnut colored gel stain by DecoArt
9. Warm Caramel colored spray paint
10. Rub’n Buff ( colors Spanish Copper and Antique Gold)
11. Four giant craft sticks
I first sprayed the flat black spray paint onto the canvas.
The next step is to cut the hanger part off of the ornaments. I used wire cutters for this part.
Once I had all of the hanger parts cut off I then sprayed the nativity pieces with the warm caramel colored spray paint.
Once the spray paint was dry I then used some of the Rub’n Buff onto the pieces.
The spray paint still had a sticky feel to it so I added a light coat of the black chalky finish paint to the canvas. Once that was dry I then cut the four giant craft sticks to form the shape of a barn.
Once I had the craft sticks cut I then used the Walnut colored gel stain on them.
You will glue all four craft sticks onto the canvas as shown in photo above. I glued the star to the very top.
I added some hot glue and Spanish moss to the bottom part of the canvas.
Once I had the Spanish moss glued in place I then glued on the nativity pieces.
This was a beautiful ornament set but I just love how this makeover turned out. I hope this will inspire you to get creative and change things up.
