From a young age I started displaying a small, pre-lit Christmas tree in my room each year for the holiday season and decorated it based on my current style preferences. I have since graduated to a larger tree for my current apartment, but over the years I have accumulated quite the collection of decorations, most of which I have outgrown stylistically. This year I had the idea to do a modern interpretation on decorating for the holidays with a metallic-themed tree. Rather than buying all new ornaments, I decided to save a couple bucks and revamp my eclectic collection of ornaments to fit my current taste. I bought a can of metallic sliver spray paint and a bottle of loose glitter and went to town on my old ornaments. To get the same results, follow my step-by-step instructions to make your own do-it-yourself metallic ornaments.
