Get the tutorial to make these Easy DIY Stone Christmas Ornaments using old ornaments for a refreshed modern neutral look!
We’ve been working hard to finish our house. Which basically means I’ve been trying to get everything organized after living in a construction zone for the last two years. And this year I decided I wouldn’t buy any ornaments, because I have several tubs full and there’s just no need to add more. So I took some of my old Christmas ball ornaments and a little spray paint and made these new DIY Stone Christmas Ornaments. I’ve also teamed up with some amazing bloggers, hosted by my sweet friend Krista from The Happy Housie, to bring you over 20 different DIY Ornaments, so make sure and get to the bottom of this post to check them all out!
I got the idea for these after seeing my friend Taryn make some DIY Stone Vases. This is a super easy project that just requires some spray paint and old ornaments!

How to Make DIY Stone Christmas Ornaments
I started off with some old red and gold ornaments. In my opinion the ornaments that turned out the best were the ones with texture and design vs the standard round balls, but they all work perfectly!
Spray Paint Christmas Ornaments
I set up a workspace outside with some cardboard and toothpicks to keep the ornaments from rolling around. I just stuck the toothpicks into the cardboard and spaced everything out enough for spray painting. First I used primer, then a coat of black spray paint. For about half of the ornaments I left them with just the gray primer. The Textured Stone Spray Paint isn’t a full coverage paint so whatever the base coat is will show through. I went with a basic black and gray and then began layering the the Textured Stone Spray.
Stone Look Ornaments
I used 3 different shades – Pebble, Black Granite, and Bleached. Each of the stone colors look great on both black and gray base colors. I also layered the different colors to get more contrasting look.
Just a little tip when using the stone spray paint. It’s very thick and takes a little time to set. Typically with spray paint you can re-coat right away, but I found it best if I let each coat of the stone paint dry about 30 minutes before re-coating. Once it’s dry you can flip the ornaments over to get the other side.
Let everything fully dry overnight and you are ready to hang them on your tree.
