I found this resin deer ornament at Michaels craft store. I wasn’t sure how the paint would stick to it since it’s a pretty smooth finish on it but decided that for a $1.00 we’d give it a try.

What you will need:

Resin Ornament

Acrylic paint

Mod podge

Ribbon

Paint brushes

I set up Sophia to paint it. TIP: Remove the string from the ornament before painting.

After the first stroke of paint I realized that it works great. The resin ornament wasn’t repelling the paint.

Sophia thoroughly enjoyed painting the deer. Allow to dry after painting is done. I placed it standing up on a paper plate out of reach, since Sophia wanted to go play with it 🙂

After the paint has dried paint a thin layer of mod podge on it. This will help preserve it longer. The mod podge dries clear so don’t worry about it looking cloudy when you put it on.

Put ribbon back on after it has dried.

TIP: the resin ornaments are more on the fragile side (I’m basing off the fact the of the 3 deer at the store this was the only one with both antlers intact) So handle with care.
