Last week, on Easy Homemade Merry & Bright Christmas Card, I told you I would be sharing more easy Christmas projects throughout the season. Today it is time for another one! This year I decided to change up our Christmas décor after 10 years of the same tree and ornaments. That means we need all new ornaments and, of course, it also means loads of new DIY tutorials for you. The first of these is this DIY golden stained glass ornament. It is incredibly easy to make and looks gorgeous on the new tree. Continue reading to find out how to make this awesome new ornament.

- Laser Cut Wood Bell Ornament (I got mine at Michael’s)
- Acrylic Paint
- Gold Enamel Paint
- Paint Brushes (detail and wide)
- Red Cord

Remove your ornament from any packaging.
Next, cut the hanging ribbon off of your ornament.
Then paint the front of your ornament white.
Let the paint dry before moving on.
After the white paint dries, paint the inside details of the bell maroon and the areas between the ribbons red.
Set your ornament aside and let the paint dry.
Next, paint all of the raised areas off your ornament gold. See the picture above for reference.
Wait for the paint to dry completely before moving on.
After the paint dries, flip your ornament over.
Then paint the entire back gold.
Again, let the paint dry.
Flip your ornament back over and fill in the indentations with Glossy Accents.
Let your ornament set for 24 hours to dry.
Cut a length of red cord to create the hanger for your ornament.
Next, thread the cord through the eye of the ornament and knot the ends together.
Lastly, trim the excess cord from the end of your knot.
This DIY golden stained glass ornament is a beautiful addition to your Christmas tree this year. I know there is a lot of drying time but you don’t want to rush it. The end result is absolutely worth it. This would look gorgeous if you switched the colors to blue and silver as well. You may see an update with a variation on the colors in the near future.
