Clean white and beautifully bold red are the main colors in Scandinavian designed ornaments and decorations for Christmas. These ornaments are pre-made, all you have to do is paint them!

You can find these ornaments at Michaels craft store. They are made by ArtMinds and are plain white plaster. Just take out the hanger, paint, seal and put the hanger back on! Pretty simple. :)

I have just a couple more Christmas projects to share, and then I hope everyone has a joyous time with friends and family.

Please remember to hug everyone close to you a little tighter at least once this week. As tragedies unfold around us, it’s easy to see how lucky we truly are.

      Hi Amanda! I have not made any myself, however I’m sure it could be easily done with Plaster of Paris and some sort of molds. Not sure how well cookie cutters would work as I’m not sure if the material would seep underneath the cookie cutter edges before it dries. However, I would think it would be thick enough that it would work, maybe fill the cookie cutter and then tape the cookie cutter down so as the material dries it doesn’t lift up?
