Five Minute Crafts Gold Dot Christmas Ornament
Hi everyone! I’m Heather at Setting for Four. I’m so excited to be here today! It was a big, big thrill to have met Heather and Vanessa at Haven in August! Both of these lovely ladies are so warm, genuine and fun in person!! When I met them I absolutely felt like I had known them forever..that’s just how cool and down-to earth they both are!!

Today I’m sharing a quick DIY Christmas ornament that embraces a color trend that we are seeing everywhere right now ~ Gold! I’m crushing on all things gold right now and the Gold Dot look is such a fun on-trend pattern!

5 Minute DIY Gold Dot Christmas Ornament:

Pin It

Clear glass balls
Gold paint pen
Gold beads (I used bugle beads – but you could use any shape of bead you like!)
Gold ribbon

This really is so simple! Just add dots of gold, with your paint pen, on the glass balls starting at the top of the ball and working down. Make the dots closer together at the top of the ball and space them out more as you work towards the middle. This takes no time at all!

Add some beads to the ball.

Paint the silver cap and hanger gold too!

Add gold ribbon to hang,

That’s all there is to it! Easy and simple to make!

I love the shimmer of the gold dots and shine of the beads – so pretty! Make a bunch of these to display in a bowl or hang from your tree.
