Make Painted Glass Christmas Ornaments

A long time ago, when my son was a baby, I made a ton of these ornaments for his first Christmas. Its one of the sweetest memories I have – him in his high chair, and me making ornaments just for him. I still have them, too!

Now it is time for new ones and I am wild about spa blue! I bought a white Christmas tree last year and thought that a few of these ornaments using metallic pearl white and metallic ice blue would be so swoon-worthy! They are so beautiful!



Today, I will share with you how I made these inexpensive beauties!


  • Clear glass ornaments
  • Acrylic craft paint
  • Small plastic cups
  • Coordinating ribbon

Carefully remove the hangers from the ornaments and set them aside.


Using the paint, pour a little in the opening at the top. Add the next color and any remaining colors.



Continually turn the ornament to spread the paint until the inside is entirely coated.



Turn the ornament upside down and set it in the cup so the excess paint drains out of the opening.


Once the remaining paint has drained, turn the ornaments right side up and let dry for at least 24 hrs.


Replace the hangers and use the ribbon to add a bow.

These ornaments are so cute when they are painted in bright or metallic colors, plus they are so inexpensive!
