Paintbrush Ornaments

I recently created these paintbrush ornaments for a friend who loves to paint!  These were so fun to do!
I started with inexpensive paint brushes from Home Depot, and taped them off for painting.
I chose these colors for the handles and applied with a foam brush:
After this dried, I covered the wooden handles and taped off the brush areas and spray painted the metal section using Rust-oleum spray paints:
Heirloom white 
After the base coats were all applied, I painted on the snowman face and then finished by hot gluing embellishments from my craft stash.
Finally, I added coordinating ribbon to the handles so they can easily hang on the tree.
Thanks for visiting!

  2. Lori, these are so CUTE! They caught my eye right away over at SNS. I just saw a pack of chip brushes at Big Lots. I'm going to pick some up and give them to my daughters after showing them this post. One of my girls is artsy, I think she'll really run with this idea. ;)
