This elegant Christmas ornament is an enchanting way to commemorate the festive season. Our Good King Wenceslas ornament has a vivid, multi-hued color palette beautifully depicting the famous Christmas carol. Give your holidays a royal flair with this charming ornament.

This set includes the blank ornament, color photos and instructions - patterns are etched on the surface for ease and to add dimension to the painting.  

Another wonderful outlet for our creative journey, each ornament is done out of mdf and laser cut with intricate detail.  The patterns are etched on the surface for ease of painting.  If you prefer to not use the etching, it can be painted over with Gesso or Texture paste and then the pattern can be applied - as you prefer.

This design originally appeared in our Good King Wenceslas online class.  If you have this online class already, then you have the instructions for painting this design and can just purchase the blanks.
