Decorate Your Tree with One Direction

To begin you create a clean canvass to decorate by covering your metal lids with paper mache strips, use the paper mache strip recipe which is super easy. This will give you the blank canvas you need to decorate anyway you wish.

Now all the girls and guys in the world can have their own unique One Direction ornaments for their Christmas tree.

Great for decorating during the holidays.


Make Your Ornament Armature

ornament back1. First you will cover your up cycled lid with paper mache strips. We have metal lids and want to add paint and glitter our paper mache will give us a blank canvas that our decorations will adhesive to. Metal is not as user friendly as our mache.

You only need to cover the entire lid once with your strips. Let this completely dry before painting your white primer coat of paint.


I placed mine in the oven on VERY low heat (145) to speed up my dry time. It is perfectly safe but I recommend not leaving it.

2. Paint one layer of primer coat all over your ornament and let this completely dry.

Sand your ornament if you need to lightly sand off any paste do so now before adding your primer coat.

Glitter; don't forget the glitter girls and ribbon to hang your ornament. You can spray your ornament with a varnish to add a high shine as well.

5. Attach a ribbon for hanging onto your Christmas tree.
