DIY vintage inspired baubles

Last week I showed you the vintage Christmas tree decorations that I bought from Sunbury antiques market and on Sunday I showed you the gorgeous vintage Christmas tree decorations from Citrus and Orange and Loretoidas. Inspired by all these vintage baubles I decided to paint cheap plastic silver baubles with nail polish and dust them in vintage glitter to match my Vintage Christmas theme. I love how the polish gives them a worn look but still gives them a little shimmer and is a great way to use up old nail polish! I was also lucky enough to find some old metal glitter in my craft boxes which adds to their vintage look. If you can't find metal glitter try using a course glitter instead.

Here's how...

Have a sweet day!
