DIY Ornaments


  • Plastic ornament balls
  • Acrylic or Tempera water based paint.
  • Dixie cup or plastic cup for draining.

Step 1. Remove lid from plastic ornament. Place it to the side where it won’t get lost.

Step 2. Add paints into ornament one by one. Turn, swirl, and shake the ornament in order to cover the entire surface area with paint. (In my video I sped up the process to save your precious time, but the kids have fun watching the paint flow like lava around the inside of the ornament. It takes up much more time than 4 minutes).

Step 3. Place Dixie cup out in an area meant for drying.

Step 4. Turn ornament opening down and rest ornament on top of Dixie cup so that the excess paint can flow out of the ornament into the cup.

Step 5. Let sit for approximately 24 hours or until dry.

Step 6. Replace lid and hang where you desire.

Have fun and learn something,
