If you’re a creative type who likes to get stuck in and make things for your home, then why not make your very own Christmas decorations this year?

Our Metallic paint range is ideal for adding an element of sparkle. The six mesmerising colours can be used to paint all types of wooden accessories such as baubles, snowflakes, stars and even pinecones – silver Sophistication®, golden Millionaire® and purple Dazzle® are great for this.

To see how it’s done, we’ve put together an easy to follow video for our readers. Click here to watch it – Making Christmas More Colourful with Crown Paints.

Not just for painting accessories, the Metallic emulsion can also be used on walls in the home too. For those of you feeling brave, why not try using a stencil to create a pattern on your wall? Our pale gold paint, Striking®, looks fabulous on a darker coloured background. Or if you fancy something a bit more linear, you could try using masking tape to add some stripes.
