Swirly Ornaments

Happy Friday, everyone! In honor of the Spirit of Christmas I thought I would share some ornaments that I made last year. Yes, it has taken me a year to finally post about these. Procrastination - get me EVERY time. These ornaments are so cheap and easy to make! I wasn't going to do a tutorial buuuuuuttttt WHAT THE HECK, right? I'm on my lunchbreak and have nothing else to do or anywhere to go. 
1. Clear Glass Ornaments (Michael's or Hobby Lobby)
2. Multi Purpose Paint (You have to make sure it is approved for glass!)
3. Embellishments (I didn't embellish mine but you can put ribbons & feathers at the top to make extra pretty)

How To
1. Take top off of ornament and squeeze paint into bulb and swirl around
2. Add in another color (I would say you can add up to three colors because any more than that would look like something threw up in your ornament...LOL)
3. Keep swirling until all of the ornament is covered and turn the ornament upside down to drain the excess paint. (You should probably do this overnight)
4. Replace top and emellish ornament to your liking
5. Hang on tree or give to friends and family as gifts!

See? How easy is that? I would love to see your ornaments that you created! Leave a link in to your blog in my comments field so I can take a look.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!
