How to Make DIY Grand Millenial Christmas Ornaments

diy blue and white grand millenial ornaments

Do you choose a color theme for Christmas decorating? I normally do a colorful palette or metallics, but this year I’m trying something new. Did you guess from the title ha ha? Read on to see how I make DIY grand millenial Christmas ornaments.

I have the cutest blue and white chinoiserie Christmas tree statue! Do I need a chinoiserie tree statue? No, I have so many decorations but it was too pretty to pass! My home style is a bit Grand Millenial and I do have a bit of chinoiserie scattered around, so the tree does fit in. The thing is, I don’t have a ton of blue and white or chinoiserie style Christmas decor.

Enter the blue and white Christmas blog hop created by Diane at South House Designs. It was the motivation I needed to make some DIY blue and white ornaments to compliment the unnecessary, but oh so pretty statue. Later in the post I share links to all of the other ideas for a blue and white Christmas! Make sure to visit each one 🙂

What I Used To Make DIY Grand Millenial Ornaments

I had a piece of blue and white floral multipurpose paper from Paper Source that I never used and I ordered some paper napkins from Amazon too. The napkins are thin, so best to be cautious when applying them. The white of the napkin may be too translucent for some, but I don’t mind.

Spread thin layer of Modge Podge onto ornament.

Believe it or not, this is my first go with Modge Podge. It is super easy to use! I am looking around the house to see what else needs some decopauge.

Press paper of your choice onto ornament.

Oops! Excuse my manicure.

Make sure to align the paper so that a nice focal point, in the case above it is the bird, is centered.

Trim paper and glue a new piece of paper onto other side.

I debated wrapping the napkin and paper all the way around, but decided it might look cleaner to cut two separate sections. This is especially helpful with thicker paper to help prevent bulky creases.

Let the Modge Podge dry for 20 minutes, then cover paper with thin layer of Modge Podge to seal.
