I really wanted gray ornaments this year for my tree, so I decided to make my own! It’s so easy and they look really charming, plus you get to customize them with any color you want. I bought glass ornaments from Michaels as well as the new Martha Stewart Multi-Surface, Acrylic Craft Paint. It’s kind of a similar process to this, but instead of using a paint brush to cover the inside, you just have to shake! A craft that gives your arms a workout, genius!
Squeeze a good amount of paint inside the glass ornament
Cover the top with a paper towel and then shake the ball like crazy! You want the paint to cover the entire inside of the ball. After shaking a few ornaments, Zan’s strength helped me finish the rest! ha You really have to shake hard to get those babies covered, but it’s fun. Add more paint if you need a bit more coverage.
Let the ornaments dry overnight with the top off… When they are completely dry, put the top back on the ornament
That’s it!! You have very chic, custom ornaments for your tree or garland! They’re very shiny and look great reflecting the tree’s glowing lights ; )
