If you’re like me, then you probably love Easy Christmas Ideas! This one certainly falls into that category! Today I’m going to show you how to make some pretty Painted Peacock Ornaments. These are easy to make but have a high end look to them.
- Flat Glass Ball Ornaments
- Martha Stewart Silkscreen Adhesive – Peacock Feather (use your Michael’s coupon!)
- Foam pouncer
- Gold Metallic Glass Paint (I used Martha Stewart)
- Acrylic Craft Paint in your desired colors
* I found all of my supplies at Michaels Crafts
Step 1: Remove the metal cap, and pour some of the acrylic paint into the glass ornament. Turn the ornament until the paint covers the inside of it completely. (These take a long time to dry, sometimes a couple of days, so turn them a couple of times each day so that the paint doesn’t pool.)
Step 2: Adhere the Martha Stewart adhesive Silkscreen Stencil to the glass ornament.
Step 3: Using the foam pouncer, apply the metallic glass paint to the exterior of the glass ball. Then immediately peel up the stencil and remove it. (make sure you clean it right away, so that you can reuse it again!)
Step 4: Allow the metallic paint to dry fully.
Step 5: Replace the metal cap. If desired, you can paint the cap to match the gold feather, with either the gold paint or some gold Rub and Buff wax.
Aren’t they pretty?! I had so much fun using these bold colors for the inside of the ornaments, they really made the gold bits pop!
I hope you liked this Easy Christmas Ornament idea! You can use the stencils over and over again, I’ve used mine on so many different projects. To keep the cost down, make sure you use a coupon if you get your stencils at Michaels!
Here are a few other projects that I used with the silkscreen adhesive stencils:
