Hand painted glass Christmas Ornaments - how to



You can paint circles and dots, right?




And a few leaf shapes, right?  That's all there is to it.




Cover old plate with wet paper towel, squeeze out different colors of  acrylic paints, the more the better





Paint circles, dots and leaf-shaped images onto clear glass balls,
hang with wire on doorknobs  (or anything else you can rig up) until dry






Use lots of colors and don't forget to highlight with white paint

If you decide that you need to see one of my hand painted Christmas Ornaments in person, a few are on deck in my Etsy Shop.

  3. Dear Georgianna, With your artistic eye you will have no trouble at all painting these ornaments. Any craft store has the plain glass ornaments in stock this time of year. They usually come in several different sizes. Often they disappear before Thanksgiving.
    Just remember, that if you don't like something you have painted, just paint right over the top if it again. The thicker the paint the better.
