Paint Inside of Clear Glass Ornaments

To make beautiful homemade Christmas tree ornaments, pour or squeeze craft paint, your choice of colors, into clear glass bulbs. Twirl the bulbs around, holding your finger over the open top, and watch the paint swirl around. Use paint sparingly until you get the hang of it. Sometimes you can almost guide it in a pattern you like. You can put in one color, let it dry and then add a second color, or use two colors at once. Kids love making these beautiful ornaments too. Some colors I find exceptionally gorgeous are bronze, copper, gold, and silver.


You can hang them on your tree or group them in a clear bowl or vase. Just pick a color scheme you like and you'll fall in love with these one-of-a-kind ornaments. You can even use bright or pastel colors and group them in a bowl for a beautiful summertime display.
