Faux Wood Grain Ornament

Recycle & revamp your old ornaments! Turn them from that stark snow white into classic wood grain ornaments using Rust-Oleum's Metallics Spray in Aged Copper!

Project Steps:

1. Find a safe spot to spray paint - always cover items with a drop cloth to protect them from spray mist.
**Quick Tip - I sprayed my ornaments in my garage, covered everything around and used a shoe box - placed plastic cup with ornament right inside.

2. Spray your old ornaments with Rust-Oleum's Metallic Spray in Aged Copper

3. Two Light Coats will do the trick!
**Quick Tip - Place ornament into a plastic cup, spray one side - allow to fully cure and turn ornament on other side, spray again.

4. Using Glitter Glue (which is thicker then Elmer's Glue) start making lines and long ovals on the painted ornament.
**Quick Tip - Place painted ornament back into cup and place a paper plate under the cup to catch all of the excess flocking powder. You can recycle the remainder of the powder for the other half of the ornament.

5. Immediately sprinkle the Ivory Colored Flocking powder, covering the wet glue.

6. Allow to fully dry and repeat.
