This year we’ve been making and collecting decor in a neutral and metallic color scheme. I’ve seen spray painted animals all over pinterest, so I decided to try them out as simple ornaments. We followed this tutorial via Curbly to add hooks with a drill and then finished them with simple gold spray paint. I love how they turned out and will definitely make more in the future! Have you made any ornaments this year? xo. elsie

I made these last year – such a great addition to the tree!
Just wanted to let you know that I think this is my favorite blog! I just featured two more of your posts! You can check them out here: http://yourworkistodiscoveryourworld.blogspot.com/2012/12/monday-blogg-madness-numeral-dos.html
Thanks for all of the great posts!! 🙂
These are so pretty! I love gold christmas ornaments!
Thank you Elsie for this post!
I bought some silver and gold spray a few weeks ago and I`m still thinking for what I should use them.You gave me some great ideas!
I have made lots of Froebel stars. They can hang anywhere, in a tree as well as in the window. I think I´ll make some more, using thin felt. I wonder, if it works.
These are so great! I have a good friend who is a champion dressage rider and I think she’ll love these!
How did I not think of this?! It would have been prefect for my red & gold tree this year! 🙂

LOVE this idea!!
I have a tree in our backyard that drops huge acorns I put some wire on them and hung them there so natural looking and go with any thing
I’ve been looking forward to this ever since the sneak peek! I think this is the best way to recycle old toys!
Wow so cute! I love metallic neutrals for holiday decor too. We haven’t done much decorating, since we always go to our parent’s for christmas.
Strive to Thrive,
These are amazing! I don’t have a tree this year but will definitely save this for later!
I just love the idea of using the animals as ornaments, so cute! I used them to create little kid friendly metallic objects: http://www.thedesignitch.com/2012/11/spray-painted-toy-animals.html .
Yes, they are just perfect! I love them too!
Love this idea. Great way to save money on new ornaments!
This is so serendipitous! I was selling jewelry at an independent market this weekend and bought a necklace from a girl who was spray painting dollar store figurines gold and stringing them onto necklaces. I am wearning one with a cat on it right meow!

These are cute. I can’t stop making these, sending them out as gifts this year.
