Easy Hand-Painted Glass Ornaments with DecoArt

I have had a love affair with vintage glass ornaments since I was a kid in awe of my Grandparents’ Christmas tree.  The Colors!  The Sparkle!  The Shine!  I am still mesmerized to this day, so whenever I spy any type of vintage glass ornaments I always scoop them up.  These easy hand-painted glass ornaments were inspired by my vintage collection and I’m sharing the tips and tricks to make them below, so let’s get started!

Here’s how to make easy vintage-inspired ornaments:

 

STEP ONE – PREPARATION

 

Clean each vintage glass ornament with a baby wipe and then let dry completely.  I found mine at a local thrift store (31 silver and gold ornaments for $5.00) but you can use plastic or glass ornaments from any big box or craft store.  Add all four colors of paint to a clean paper plate or palette.

STEP TWO – HOLLY ORNAMENT

 

Load #6 round brush with Santa Red and create a round berry on the front center of the gold ornament.  Repeat with a second and third berry in a pyramid shape.  This loose and painterly technique works best when you load additional paint onto the paintbrush before each stroke on the ornament.  Clean brush.  Load #4 round brush with Forest Green and create a holly leaf shape by connecting six half circles.  Load additional paint and fill in the holly leaf.  Repeat with second and third holly leaf, referring to photo for placement.  Pick up Hauser Medium Green and add a highlight to the center of each leaf.  Bend open a large paper clip and use it as a hanger to allow the ornament to dry completely.

STEP THREE – POINSETTIA ORNAMENT

 

Load #6 round brush with Santa Red and create an asterisk-shape on the front center of the silver ornament as the base of the poinsettia flower.  Load additional paint and create each petal by painting parentheses shapes on either side of the base stroke.  Pick up Deep Burgundy and create a shadow on the left side of each petal.  Clean brush.  Load #4 round brush with Forest Green and create a leaf of the right and left side of the poinsettia flower.  Bend open a large paper clip and use it as a hanger to allow the ornament to dry completely.

STEP FOUR – EMBELLISHMENTS

 

Once dry, outline the holly berries with red glitter glue and add swirls with silver glitter glue.  Set aside to dry.  Add gold glitter glue dots to the center of the poinsettia and swirls around the ornament.  Set aside to dry.  Measure and cut ten-inch lengths of red satin ribbon, thread through metal hanger at the top of the ornament and secure with a knot.  For some extra embellishment, add a bow.
