DIY Crushed Rock Ornaments

One of my favorite parts of the magazine is coming up with simple, new projects for our 9 Designs feature. These crushed rock ornaments, with their thoughtful blend of textures, add subtle, sophisticated sparkle to your holiday tree.

TOOLS & MATERIALS: white porcelain ornaments, black crushed rock, all-purpose glue, paintbrush, painter’s tape, disposable plate and spoon

INSTRUCTIONS: Step 1: Wrap tape around ornament to help create a clean line. Step 2: Brush glue onto ornament below tape. Step 3: Over plate, use spoon to sprinkle crushed rock onto glue, pressing rock in place to adhere. Hang to dry. Step 4: Once ornaments are dry, repeat process on any bare spots and let dry once more.
