Season Greetings!

Bring the spirit of Christmas to your home with this inspiring collection of hand-painted tree trims. Whether your style is country, classic, or contemporary, this year’s assortment has something to complement everyone’s holiday décor.

Christmas is synonymous with a loving, a caring, and a giving spirit. This can be expressed in many ways. For some, the gift of service is their way to give back— donating time to local charities and visiting senior centers and hospitals. For others, it means holding bake sales, craft fairs, or rummage sales to raise money for charitable causes. Why not surprise the seniors and patients with hand-painted ornaments or even a small tree decorated for the holidays. When gathering items to sell at craft fairs, be sure to include some hand-painted ornaments.

With each new issue of PaintWorks Christmas Ornaments, we strive to bring you innovative designs as well as traditional favorites. This year’s collection proves to be different from any other year. Be sure to adapt these designs to fit other surfaces, using them for tags, pins, pendants, plaques, boxes, and more.

No matter what projects you choose to paint, a grouping of handcrafted ornaments or adaptations of these designs will bring warmth to your holiday festivities and smiles to the faces of others.

Happy Holidays!
