The Co-Op: Holiday Decor Edition

Don’t you go thinking we forgot about the holidays when it came to our beloved Brit Co-Opers! For December’s round of Co-Op parties we teamed up The Home Depot ® to arm a handful of our Co-Op members with all the tools to create the most epic Christmas ornament ever.

No idea what the Brit Co-Op is? The Brit Co-Op is a a group of handpicked hostesses selected by Brit + Co. These gals (and sadly, no gents yet!) are some of the coolest and raddest Brit + Co. fans who are willing to host 10 of their friends for free (yes, free!) DIY parties a few times a year. And this time, many giant ornaments were made!

Each Co-Op member got 11 kits, with the supplies to create a Giant DIY Holiday Ornament. Serious props to the folks at The Home Depot ®  for helping us kit this project up!

Each ornament kit included:

– 1 handblown glass globe

– 1 hose clamp

– 3 DecoColor silver broad paint markers

– 1 DecoColor red fine point paint marker

– 1 DecoColor green fine point paint marker

– 1 DecoColor white fine point paint marker

– 1 bottle Martha Stewart Antique Silver Glitter Paint

– painter’s tape

– 1 paint brush set

– 1 hot glue gun

– glue sticks

It’s a great DIY starter kit in general — these Co-Opers will be well-equipped to tackle a whole bunch of new projects now! One of the reasons we loved creating this project with The Home Depot ® is because you can literally find everything you need in one place. We’d do this again for the paint pens alone! ;)

As you can see, everyone added their own personal touch to their ornament, thanks to the fun paint pens and glitter paints. From hearts to stars to polka dots  to displaying it upside down right next to a mini Christmas tree!

We’re especially digging the hearts on the right — perfect for a Valentine’s Day take on this same project.

And what would a DIY party be without dessert? How cute is that ParDIY pie? Or is it a giant cookie? We also love the crazy ribbon right on top of the ornament on the right.

Want to create this project to prep for 2014 holidays? First of all, applause for planning that far ahead. Second of all, check out our full-fledged tutorial to learn how to create your own, all powered by supplies found at The Home Depot ®.
