How to Make a Toile Ornament

A piece of toile pattern trimmed from a dinner napkin and decoupaged onto a basic ball becomes an elegant ornament.

What You Need

  • Round ornaments
  • Red and white spray paint
  • Medium-size drinking cups with 3-inch-diameter openings
  • Toile napkins
  • Flat artist's brush
  • Decoupage medium

How to Make It

  1. Remove the ornament tops and spray-paint some with red, others with white.
  2. To steady the ornaments, place them top side down into the cups.
  3. Cut out images from the napkins and lay them right side down into the palm of your hand.
  4. Brush a thin coat of decoupage medium on the image, and carefully press it onto the ornament, smoothing wrinkles.
  5. Allow ornaments to thoroughly dry in the cups.
  6. Replace the painted ornament tops.
