Crafting day is a very dangerous day :)

Rocko's Modern Life was a childhood favorite of mine, so this year I decided to incorporate that memory into our Christmas tree with a Spunky themed ornament.  In this tutorial I will be showing you all the steps I took to create the final product.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this project you will need the following:
  • 1 Clear Glass Ornament ( I got a 4 pack at Michaels for $2.49)
  • Acrylic Paint (I used Americana multi-surface satin in dark green, light green, white, black, yellow, pink, orange and red)
  • Paintbrush
  • Glass of water
  • Napkin
  • Foil (or any surface to mix your paint)
  • Stand for the ornament (I used a few things I had around the house: roll of painters tape, laundry detergent cup and an old ribbon roll)
  • Blow dryer
  • Sharpie
  • Scrap piece of paper
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Step 2: Plan & Practice

This step is completely optional but I found it helpful to do a practice round on paper to get the feel for what I was going to be painting. 

I knew I wanted to create a Rocko Ornament so I did some searching on youtube and found a good shot of Spunky in Mr. Bighead's Salmon bushes. Above is the screenshot I used as guide for creating the final design.
