Introduction: Mixed Media Ornaments
Looking for a way to combine paint, glitter, and stickers into a beautiful ornament decoration? Why not try all three in this fun, easy project!
Step 1: Materials
Here's what you will need to make them:
- clear glass or plastic ornaments
- rhinestone stickers
The rest of the items are not shown, but you will also need:
- Mod Podge (not shown)
- sponge brush or large paint brush (not shown)
- plastic cup or container (not shown)
Step 2: Prep Ornaments
For all ornament projects, make sure to wash, rinse, and dry them off for best results.
Step 3: Start With Paint
The first part in making this 3 in 1 masterpiece is beginning by squirting some paint inside the ornament and rolling it around for a marbleized effect. Make sure to also set out a plastic cup or container to drain out any excess paint.
Step 4: Glitter
Next, brush some Mod Podge on the metal hanging part of the ornament and cover it with some glitter! You can choose a color of glitter to compliment the paint colors in your ornament.
Step 5: Add Stickers
For the final step, add some bling to your ornament with a few rhinestone stickers. In this example, I am adding some metallic blue snowflakes to my ornament. The other that you will see has some white polka dots all around.
Step 6: Colorful Ornaments
Once everything has completely dried, they're ready to add to your holiday decor!
