  • clear glass or plastic ornaments
  • black and white acrylic paint (cheapest) 
  • Plastic cups
  • Small paint brush

First take the top of the plastic ornament. After that take the white acrylic paint and add a generous amount around the inner edges of the ornament. I like to use a cheaper paint because it’s a little watered down so it allows the paint to move more. All the paint to drip down to the bottom.
