  • 6 Glass Clear Christmas Ornaments
  • FolkArt Acrylic Paints (dark pink, coral pink & white)
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Foam Brush
  • German Glass Glitter
  • Faux Pearl Buttons Rhinestones Embellishments
  • 3/4″ Grosgrain White Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • empty egg carton

The project will yield 6 ornaments with three 2 fl. oz of acrylic paint.

Let’s Have some fun:

1. Three Paint Colors

Remove the top of the ornament and set it aside. I like to work with only three colors of paint. One color is usually white. I find that white will made the other colors pop. Do not use colors very similar. It will not be very noticeable. You should have a dark color and a complimentary color that is five shades lighter or a contrasting color.

Begin the project by layering your acrylic paints inside the glass ornament. Add the darkest color first. Next add the lighter color. The third layer will be the white. Then repeat all three colors again.

2. Get Your Swirl On

The fun part is twirling the glass ornament and watching the colors marble. It’s fun to see the colors swirl and blend onto the glass.

You can place your finger over the opening and shake it. When all of the glass area is covered turn the ornament upside down to let the extra paint drain.

You can let them sit overnight or a couple of hours. Generally, I wait 2 hours and wipe off around the opening.

3. Leave them plain or add some sparkle!

If you want to leave the plain, place the silver top for hanging back on the ornament.

To apply the German Glass Glitter, dip your foam brush into the Mod Podge. You will paint the Mod Podge around the top of the ornament where you want the glitter to adhere.

Be cautious using the German Glass Glitter. It is small fragments of glass. You do not want to touch you eyes or rub your finger across to brush off the extra glitter. Use a paint brush!

Add the topper that hangs the ornament into the opening.
