This is one of my favorite ways to make ornaments, and it's even easy enough for kids to enjoy. One year we did this as an activity after Thanksgiving dinner and it went great. This is also a great way to get a custom ornament color if you have a tree that needs a turquoise or hot pink or chocolate brown and can't find it.
You need: clear glass craft ornaments, craft paints (I used leaf green, metallic copper, metallic silver, metallic gold), disposable bathroom cups. That's really all.
Gee, Mendy, looks like you've got some glitter and glue in the picture. What is that for?
Well, I tried to use the glue and glitter and it turned out bad. Really, really bad. Ignore.
Here's how you do it!
1. Take the little top off of the glass ornament.
2. Squirt craft paint inside the ornament. Use any colors that you wish. I would warn against using too many colors inside one ornament, but it's totally up to you.
3. Swirl around a little bit, and then turn the ornament upside down and rest in the disposable bathroom cup, to allow the paint to cover the inside and drain.
Three of them fell victim to my glue/glitter idea (BAD! ICKY!) and one fell victim to Max.
