Tips & Tricks:

For colorful ornaments, squeeze a little paint through the top of the ornament and then swirl as the paint coats the inside of the glass. You can mix with glitter, multiple color paints, or just one great metallic color. Also, feel free to save some open clear space as a window to look into the ornament.

For winter wonderland ornaments, cut fake holiday sprigs up and push them into the ornament. You can add some metallic sequins or fake snow for a snow globe feel.

For a blizzard ornament, try white pom poms, fake snow, and white glitter.

Get creative! Mix and match various supplies to create different color palettes or scenes. You can always empty back out the ornament if you’re not pleased with how something is looking.

Volià! Get ready to impress your friends and family with these easier than you could believe holiday ornaments.
