I was looking for some DIY projects to update my “Thanksgiving tree” and recently found just the thing – unfinished DIY ceramic leaf ornaments! These could be finished in any color you want… reds, yellows, and oranges to fit your fall home decor. But I decided to use the metallic spray paint that I used on my junky pumpkins last week and write some words on them to help me remember to be grateful this month.

Supplies Needed for DIY Leaf Ornaments
- unfinished ceramic leaf ornaments
- spray paint
- spray shelter
- Stickles glitter glue set
- craft scissors
Remove the ribbon hanger from leaf ornaments. Spray the unfinished ornaments with a couple of light coats on both sides, allowing to dry between coats. Protect your surroundings with a spray shelter and/or a cardboard box.
When paint has dried complete, write the words in pencil.
Trace words with glitter glue.
Allow to dry completely, then tie on pieces of jute.
Remember, I keep my small Christmas tree up all year long as a photo prop for all the ornaments I make. So I decorate it for every season. I showed you how to make the paper straw garland last week.
Here are some examples from other holidays:
