These copper tree Christmas ornaments will look great on your tree this holiday season. I love the metallic trend and the addition of silver flake to the resin in these really sets them off! I used a tree shape wood ornament but you can think of using this same technique on any wood ornaments that you are painting for your own tree. Don’t you love the copper? Change it up with the paint color of your choice. These should be customized to fit any theme you are going with on your Christmas tree this year.
Supplies needed to make these copper tree Christmas ornaments:
- Wood ornaments
- EnviroTex Lite Pour On High Gloss Finish
- Copper paint
- Silver flakes
- Stir sticks
- Measuring cups
- Mixing cups
- Protective gloves
Start by painting the wood ornaments with the color paint of your choice. Paint all sides to give them a finished appearance. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Then measure and mix your EnviroTex Lite Pour On High Gloss Finish according to the package directions. Be sure to wear protective gloves and follow all mixing procedures that are included in the package. This includes a 2 cup mixing procedure that should be adhered to for all resin projects.
Then pour a thin coat of the mixed resin into your wood ornament as shown below. You can use your stir stick to push the resin into the corners.
Sprinkle on silver flakes immediately. You can use as much or as little as you would like. Then pour on the additional resin to cover the flakes. Just be sure that your resin does not pour over the lip on the ornament.
Allow your copper tree Christmas ornaments to cure overnight and then they are ready for you to hang on your Christmas tree.
I love the details of the metallic flakes set in resin! I can’t wait to put these on my tree with the twinkling lights. They will be spectacular!
