Christmas tree ornaments – christmas characters

Christmas is coming quickly. So, out to the garage, shed, attic, spare room – or wherever we keep the tree and decorations – we go to dust them off and get them set up for another year. At Pinnacle Hardware, we just love Christmas, and we think one of the ways you can make Christmas just a little more special is by making some of the decorations yourself. The below DIY project is perfect for kids and adults alike, it is so simple and easily customisable, and you’ll love the results. With only a few materials and very simple steps, these hand-painted ornaments made from Pinnacle Hardware hinges are a great way to add a unique touch to this year’s Christmas decorations or could even make great gifts for friends and family.

STEP 1

Begin by giving your hinges a coat or two of white paint primer. This will help keep the colours vibrant when you paint on your design. Allow this coat to dry.
