Hand Painted Christmas Ornaments Tutorial

After seeing Suze Ford’s pretty baubles on Instagram & painting a few of my own, I thought I would show you how I make my hand painted Christmas ornaments!

I won’t lie… This was a lot of work! Filming and editing long videos takes many hours and is tiring but I love it, and I hope you appreciate it too 🙂

Before we start, let me tell you how fun it is to paint your own ornaments: you can completely customise the colours, colour scheme and style to match YOUR true unique style and personality… Instead of displaying boring store bought ones that are just so generic!
Which is what I have always done hahaha But not anymore!

Let’s paint our own and let’s make some happy, colourful, and glittery!
I’ll show you how I do mine and I just know you’ll get inspired flowing to create your very own too 😉

Watch the video (it’s in 2 parts because it was so long, almost 1 hr, sped up of course or it would be 2 hours or more!) and…
Show me some love in return by leaving me a comment at the bottom of this page 🙂

Hand Painted Christmas Ornaments Tutorial Mimi Bondi


  1. Hi Mimi, I ordered the Opal Dust on Friday, and it was delivered on Saturday, before I even got the despatched notice! I haven’t had a proper play with it yet, but I did try it out on a couple of things, and it’s gorgeous! I love that the little bits of glitter are different sizes. My friend loved it too, when I showed her, so I told her I’d get her a bottle for xmas!

      Oh fantastic, so happy you can see how beautiful it is in person! And your friend is lucky to have you 🙂 🙂 Now go make the world a glitter place haha

  2. Hi Mimi! A bit of the beginning of the second video is a black screen. I wanted to let you know, in case other viewers stop watching, thinking nothing’s there! The video starts up at 1.20. I know how much work it is to make videos, as my husband has a retro gaming channel on YouTube, so I see all the work he puts into his, and he doesn’t do as much editing as you do. That’s why I really appreciate the videos that you and other artists make, and what has put me off making my own videos, lol! So thank you Mimi!

    I really enjoyed watching you make these baubles, and they came out so pretty. I might have a go at making some. We’ve got a load of baubles that have been collected over the years, and I know we’ve got some plain silver ones, but I’ll have to wait until hubby gets the decorations down from the loft!
    I love that Opal Dust, so googled to find a UK supplier and have ordered a small bottle to play with! Can’t wait to have fun with it!
    I hope you have a happy Christmas.

      Hi Julia, Oh bugger, it’s too late to fix it now :/ Thanks for watching the whole thing and for taking the time to let me know you know how time consuming this is 😉 It’s also fun so do try it out so you can share things with the world! So glad I could inspire you, go get those baubles and have some fun decorating them! I have been addicted to Opal Dust for many years, I can’t wait for you to see how pretty it is when you receive it, let me know 🙂 🙂 Happy xmas!! mimi
