Scandinavian style is very popular at Christmas, the red and white design is quite striking. The designs are simple and clean and look wonderful against a white backdrop or hanging on a white tree.
These Scandinavian inspired ornaments are made from simple wood ornaments you can buy at Michaels craft store.
I originally made these ornaments for DecoArt and used their Americana line of paints. The exact colors that I used are listed in the printable version below.
These ornaments have screw eye hangers that can be easily removed. When you are done painting, simply screw them back in and add a dot of glue for security.
I used a round paint palette to hold the ornaments, worked great! For snowflakes I used a toothpick, and for cheeks I used the eraser of a new pencil.
The key to Scandinavian Christmas designs is that you keep it clean and simple. There aren’t a lot of details and not really any shading to speak of, which makes them a lot easier to make!
