Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s time for Potomac, MD residents to get full-fledged into decorating for the holidays. At Benchmark Painting & Carpentry, we love talking about painting – even in correlation with Christmas, so the staff at our interior and exterior home painting company came up with a few cost-effective Christmas decorations that involve painting.
Gold and Glittered Pinecones
If you have a pine tree in your backyard or neighborhood, you’re in luck. Pinecones make beautiful holiday decorations. Simply dip pinecones into gold paint, or use a small brush, and these glitzy pieces of nature will make the perfect centerpiece. You can get extra fancy with gold glitter sprinkled on while the paint is still damp.
Decorate Your Drink Tub
Want to pop open a bottle of bubbly this Christmas? You’ll need a festive drink tub for your champagne. My painters recommend simply spray painting a container that can double as a drink tub (such as a bucket or sturdy tin) and voila! Your champagne will now have a celebratory place to chill as the party lingers throughout the evening.
If you’re the wordy type, why not express your holiday sentiments on some chalkboard paint? At Benchmark Painting & Carpentry, my painters know that chalkboard paint is a cost-effective way to bring a cheery note to any area in your home. Simply paint a wall, mirror, or even a headboard with chalkboard paint, and write out your favorite Christmas carols or sentiments.
Make Your Ornaments Ornate
One of our favorite ways to brighten up your Christmas decorations is with ornaments – that is, ornate ornaments. If you’re tired of your simple ball-shaped ornaments, get out the paint, glitter, and tinsel, and turn them into works of art – perfect for the tree or as a centerpiece.
