Unpacking the Christmas decorations this year, I found the large plastic ornaments I hung outside were faded, looking ready for the trash (according to my husband). I decided to give a go at upcycling them for this year’s whimsical Christmas look in our living room. It actually helped me lighten up and play a bit more during this holiday season.

The pear was one of my demos from when I taught high school art and finds its place in various spots in our living room throughout the year. It was made with wire, formed into the shape of the pear, and then covered with plaster cast strips and painted. For the doodle ball ornaments, I lightly sanded the surface of the ornaments, painted with two coats of gesso and then painted with fluid acrylics. A spray coat of gloss varnish finished off the project.
