    Great project. I love the black and white contrast. I am a big fan of the black cross it pops nicely against the white. Seems easy enough to make and looks great on the tree. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much and also thank you for sharing it

    This is just totally BRILLIANT….. and what took you so long to tell us how….. I LOVE them. And I don’t think I can wait one more hour to find out how you made those stars……. I am so into those stars. Since I don’t have a beautiful Angel to top my faux tree….. I need something I can make on the cheap…. and stars are next on my list. since I need easy and to spend NO money.

    Also, you would so love, love, love my grand baby boy Shaymus…. he is the most wonderful kitty since Sugar. I could twist him into a pretzel and he would not scratch or anything…. he is so affectionate it is unreal.

    I need to ask you and others if I am the only one that can barely see the very light type print on here and some other blogs? I can not read for such light type print.

    1. Thanks so so much. And Shaymus sounds like he is wonderful.
      Also I have no idea why my type looks so light to you. It’s set to black. I’m wondering if it would work if you increased the contrast on your screen when you read my blog. Unfortunately I can’t set my type to darker because it’s the darkest it is. That’s not good ๐Ÿ™

  4. OK, I’ve painted ornaments before, but your trick with the nails on the board? Brilliant!! Would have made it SO much easier. Great tip.

  5. The board with the nails is genius enough! I always see ornaments after the holidays but didn’t even THINK to spray paint them. Super smart. And, I LOOVE the brushstroke pattern with the teal ribbon. So cool.

  6. I love how these turned out – they capture what I love about graphic, black and white modern art! It’s truly a unique project!

    1. Thanks Sarah I did want some modern art in my Christmas decor.

  7. So fun–I love how the Christmas decor echoes what you’ve done over the year with your home ๐Ÿ™‚ they turned out great!

    1. That’s exactly what I was trying to do, to echo what I did throughout the year.

  8. Julia, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚ This is SO awesome!! I love how you re-purposed the colors you didn’t want anymore. I love how this came out!! Love your tree!!!

    1. Thanks so much Katja, you are always the sweetest.

  9. Julia, you are so very gifted with talent and creativity!! Absolutely love how you transformed these ornaments from average to fabulous!

    1. Thank you Kara for the sweet words and visit.

    Great tutorial. These are so simple but make a big impact. Very very classy as usual!

  11. Oh my goodness Julia, come over to my house and help me add the perfect touches of black and white in my home!! I may have to seriously copy these for my home! Although once I get to it, it’ll be after Christmas ha!

    1. Haha, you don’t need any help. You are pretty awesome at doing black and white yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Merry Christmas!

  12. Love these so much! Black and white is my new favorite color scheme for the holidays.

    1. Thank you so much Anna!

  13. what kind of paint do you use on a plastic christmas 10 inch ball. i only need to paint a christmas tree on it then decorate it in gold and pearls, the christmas tree would only be on one side of the ball so I really couldn’t sand the ball itself. any ideas would be appreciated. thank you

    1. Hi Eileen, I never sand the balls, Just clean them well and prime them with Kilz spray primer, and then acrylic artist paint would work well.
