I love christmas ornaments and am always looking for creative ways to make them versus buying them at retail stores, after all, what fun is that? I found these gorgeous Christmas Swirl Ornaments at ‘holiday-crafts-and-creations’ and love how unique and beautiful these are. These also make great handmade gifts for family and friends that they will love.
Once you learn this technique, you can alter the designs by trying stripes, dots or even zig zags to go with the swirl ornaments you will make.
What you will need:
- Glossy ornament ball
- Glazed plate
- Acrylic paint (in several colors)
- Paint brush
- Mod Podge sealer (regular or glitter)
Important Note: It is important to use a glossy ornament ball because a matte ball will have no cling. It is important that your “palette” (the plate) has a glazed finish in order to give the paint the right cling. You can find a cheap glazed plate at your local dollar store. Do not use wax paper; the paint circles will have no cling. We also found that a plastic palette didn’t give the paint much cling.
