How to Make Painted Glass Ornaments

Make your own painted glass ornaments with this incredibly EASY DIY tutorial! All you need is acrylic paint and clear ornaments!

My favorite time of the year for store magazines mailings is Christmas time. I love love LOVE skimming through the pages checking out all the Christmas tree decorations, claiming “I could totally make this on my own”. That’s typically as far as I get because I know what looks easy in theory will soon become another ‘ Pinterest Fail.’ But I’m here to say that these painted glass ornaments are actually as easy as they look AND they turn out great!

In about 15 minutes (plus 24 hours drying) I had a set of white & glitter painted glass ornaments that complimented my red, pink, white & silver color scheme.

Supplies:

Pour a liberal amount of acrylic paint into your glass ornament. Cover the opening with your thumb. Swirl or gently shake so paint is covering the entire inside of the ornaments.
