Hiya, creative friends! I just LOVE mini trees for the holidays, and isn’t this one the cutest?? It was bought for a side table in my living room, and I can’t wait to share with you the awesome ornaments I made for it. I LOVE turquoise and black together, but it’s obviously not a traditional Christmas color pallet. I couldn’t find anything online to work with my colors, so I made my own ornaments instead! Today I’ll show you how to make ornaments with an easy marbled paint technique!
How to Make Ornaments with Marbling Supplies:
- Darice Glass Ornaments
- Marabu Easy Marble Paint
- Darice Bamboo Skewer Sticks
- Small Tupperware Container
- Rubber Gloves (Optional)
When learning how to make ornaments with this marbling technique, don’t worry about messing up, it will still look great!
You are going to very slowly push the ornament into the water. The paint will stick as you push it down. After it is submerged all the way to the metal topper, use your other hand to take a skewer stick and skim any leftover paint off the top. This will allow extra paint to not build up when you lift it out.
Carefully lift up your ornament out of the water. Ta-da! So fun!
Oh my goodness, now I want to marble everything. Ha! I just love that this paint works on glass, and I love that I can create something with custom colors to match my decor!
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make ornaments with marbled paint. Happy holiday crafting!
This same marbling technique can be done with nail polish like in this tutorial for DIY reindeer ornaments.
