Makeover Ornaments

I know its not Christmas but now is the time to start looking for cheap plastic ornaments at public sales and flea markets even thrift stores.  And this is the reason why.  I took some really cheap plastic ornaments that kinda look like they would of came out of a vintage mold and then I made it over into something any primitive lover would enjoy.

I simply took the plastic ornaments and sprayed them with flat black paint and immediately sprinkled cinnamon on to it.  Let it dry a little and then sprayed a sealer on it and more cinnamon and then when dry again I sealed it with a clear matte sealer.  Changed out the little gold hang tag with a piece of rope and voila a primitive ornament that looks like a vintage heirloom.  Well to me anyway.

Check out the before and afters below.
