Step 1: Materials
1. Glass or Plastic Ornament Balls
~used to fill the ornament inside
~used to design your ornament outside
3. Clear Krylon
~used for sealing the ornament
4. Glitter, stickers, ect (optional)
~used for decorating
5. Paper cups (optional)
~used to catch the paint drip from the ornaments
Step 2: The Filling
Choose the color paint you want for the inside (solid) color of your ornament.
Pour the paint inside the ornament and begin to shake/swirl the paint around the ornament.
Swirl the paint until the entire ornament is covered.
Step 3: Let It Dry
The paper cups, will catch the excess paint which could then be used to create more ornaments or for decorating.
It will take approximately an hour or so to dry depending on the paint you use and how much you use.
Step 4: Decorating
You may however, choose to decorate the outside to make the ornament unique and personal.
You can hand paint designs on as we did
You can use glue/paint to make designs and add glitter.
You can use stickers for easy decorating.
You can write names on the ornaments to give as gifts.
The possibilities are only what you cannot think of for the outside of the ornament.
Step 5: Preserving Your Hard Work
This last step is important if you plan on preserving any decorations you made to the outside of the ornament. You don't want to see your paint chipped off or your stickers peel.
Step 6: Gifting
If you want a more luxurious way to wrap the ornament, you can try a nice velvet (or faux velvet) bag.
Step 7: Completed Ornaments
