Anthropologie Inspired Ornaments by Dixie Belle Paint


Ornament Elegance: Anthropologie Dupe Delights using Dixie Belle Paint

Elevate the elegance of your Christmas tree with a touch of high-end style! Picture chic and trendy Anthropologie-inspired ornaments adorning your tree, adding a dash of sophistication without breaking the bank. What’s even more exciting? You can recreate these luxurious ornaments effortlessly using the fabulous Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paints. Let’s embark on a creative journey to transform your tree into a showcase of ornaments that look stunning but are incredibly easy to craft.



1. Prep Your Paint: Transfer your Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint color of choice into a squeeze bottle for easy, controlled application. (Less mess = Less stress. We don’t need more stress.)

2. Open the Ornament: Gently remove the cap from the ornament. If yours happened to be glued on rather than screwed on, you can reapply the cap with a dot of glue when the project is complete.

3. Squeeze and Rotate: Squeeze your chosen paint color into the ornament. Enough to coat the inside, but be mindful not to overdo it. Put the cap back on and rotate the ornament slowly to coat the interior evenly.

4. Let It Dry: Place the ornament in a dry area to allow the paint to dry completely with the cap off. Once dry you can replace the cap.

5. Ribbon and Display: Cut a ribbon for hanging, find a perfect spot on your tree, and secure the ribbon. Admire your beautifully painted ornament and enjoy the festive vibes!
