Let’s get Started
I started out by putting my artificial tree together, I am not the best at putting light on a tree AND I love the fact that I can fluff and bend a fake tree how I want it to so the ornaments hang just right.
The most important thing you have to do with an artificial tree is fluffing it. Separate the branches and fan out all the needles so they fill up space and look real, not smooshed from the box!
Fluff starting from the middle out, front & back, top, and bottom. You get scratched and somehow my hand feels super dry after but it’s an important process you can NOT skip!!!
Time to fill in the holes and sparse areas that show the base of the tree with tulle.
I basically take the tulle and fold it like a taco, or in half and ribbon it in and out of the tree then fluff it till it’s full.
Big Ornaments are key for many reasons, they help fill up space and the bring depth and variety to your tree. I used huge white glitter, shimmer and a few creams balls to mine.
You can use anything for your larger items, think outside of the box especially if you have a 9,10,12 foot tree.
Think wood holiday signs, table decor, large deer, battery operated candles… really depending on your theme Go big or go home to start off with
TIP: I use the zig-zag method and add a large ornament up top… zig to the right add another BIG ornament then zag to the left and add another until you’re at the bottom.
Be cool and keep everything spaced out good.
Medium & Small ornaments
Using the same zig-zag concept now add the Medium ornaments, standing back making sure they are not too close to each other and there are not any alike ornaments near.
Continue with the small ornaments until you’re done!
Kate Spade Inspire Ornament DIY
Last I always add in my themed ornaments to make sure they stand out.
I made sure to use whites creams and silvers ornaments on an all-white tree so that these black and white stripes pop, and they do.
This one $30 Kate Spade ornament was my inspiration to make more.
I used these pink balls I sprayed pink last year, They had been painted a few times so why not use them to paint over again this year?
you can always grab a 6 pack of plain ornaments
I laid out a paper bag to catch the paint. I used house paint that I already had around the house. I actually paint my walls with this paint.
I thought it would be an awesome idea to dry the ball on my dish rack but DON’T it stuck to the side and wasn’t as awesome as I thought.
After dipping them in the paint and let them drip dry, I held the ornaments by the top and hand painted both top and bottom black.
Here is my finished Kate Spade Inspired ornament! She gorgeous right! Thanks!
and I’m loving the simple texture it added
