TIPS & TECHNIQUES: Upcycle Old Christmas Baubles with Montana Cans Metallic Effect Spray - available from

Welcome Christmas with a touch of your creativity effortlessly with Montana Metallic Effect Spray. Not only will you have family members and friends commenting about how gorgeous your work is, you can brag about saving the environment by upcycling your old Christmas decor!

So, whether you are a traditionalist with a real Christmas tree, or a minimalist with a well-chosen branch in just the right vase, you can quickly create a touch of Christmas in your home with style and in a theme of your choice with the various colours of Montana Metallic Effect Spray by following this simple tutorial from Montana Cans blog:

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Self-adhesive film
Ornamental punch (motif of your choice)
Old or new Christmas Baubles
Plastic cover sheet
Thin protective gloves
MontanaCans METALLIC Effect Spray in your favorite colors
Piece of Styrofoam
Hangers/ribbon to place the baubles in your tree or branch

Cut a piece of the self-adhesive film and punch out the motif you have chosen. Stick the motifs onto the bauble or ornament

Cover your workplace with a plastic cover sheet and put your gloves on. Take away the hanger from your Christmas tree ball and put it aside. Apply the bauble onto a skewer. Shake your Montana Metallic Effect Spray color(s) well for 2-3 minutes and apply thin, even layers onto the object.

To let paint dry, stick the skewer upright onto a piece of Styrofoam. When the paint has dried remove the self-adhesive film motifs. Put the hanger back onto your spray painted Christmas tree bauble.

If you don’t like the base color of your Christmas tree ball, give it a fresh look with a Montana Gold line color before applying the Montana Metallic Effect Spray color. To increase durability and avoid damage, apply Montana Cans Universal Primer before applying color and Montana Varnish after the applied color has been able to dry and cure. Please be careful not to damage your paintwork when removing your adhesive film motifs.


Only painting half of your bauble or ornament can achieve a beautiful color gradient. For best results allow your Gold line color base coat to cure overnight before applying Montana Metallic Effect Spray color(s). Montana Metallic Effect Spray colors can be applied wet on wet over each other.
