This is probably one of my favorite projects to date. It’s one of those projects I thought of while lying in bed and experimented the next morning. Handmade Christmas ornaments are a special way to add some personal touches to your tree. These faux marble ornaments make my black and white Christmas tree elegant and classy! You can pick up all these supplies at your local Michaels!
[line]Faux Marble Ornaments[line]
- 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.
Immediately add the black paint to the bottom and the sides. Then turn the ornament over.
Next take your paint brush and gently add some movement to the ornament. if your seeing some spots that need to be filled move the paint towards those spots. Just make sure not to mix the paint, just small soft strokes to keep the marble look.
After that set the ornament upside down on to a paper or plastic cup to allow it to dry and drip!
