Yes I know we just got finished with Halloween, but if you want to make these you need to get started. :)
I have found that crafts do something for me. They are a much needed stress reliever. I can go in my craft room and just get away. I can do something that has an outcome, versus sitting in front of the TV and accomplishing nothing.
This particular craft is definitely one of my stress relieving crafts. I started them a couple of months ago and have made several sets, but I need to make more. I think I am going to give some as presents. So if you get these act surprised.
Lets go over how I made these suckers :)
First you need these. Clear glass ornaments.
Then get some craft paint
Squeeze some paint into the ornament
Then swirl the paint around in the ornament
Now it will take you forever to just sit there and swirl this around. So I sit them in the egg container and let gravity take hold.
I leave them like this, checking on them often and turning them until they are fully coated on the inside.
Once they are coated I take a Q-tip and put polka-dots on the ornament.
(I have since found some fancy shmancy polka-dot putter oners that I am gonna try next)
I also do one glass ornament that I have not painted on the inside and add both colors of polka-dots.
Now I know the pictures of my finished products are not the same ones that I worked on here, but you get the picture. :)
When you are done with the painting and they are dry, add a coordinating ribbon. Then you can package them in cute little boxes and give them as gifts in sets of three, or how ever many you want to put in your box.
Now go forth and craft something. :)
