Step 1
Handmake some of your ornaments this year. These Paint Pour Ornaments look professionally marbled but this DIY is super easy and will add an elegant, and artsy, touch to your Christmas tree.   Step 1 First, mix your paint with your pouring medium. In four separate cups, divide the poring medium, pour a little flow acrylic paint into the cups and mix well.  TIP: There is no exact measurement as each paint mixes differently. Start with a little paint and ad ore as needed. The consistency of the mixture sure be easily pourable but not runny. Step 2 Remove the tops from your ornaments and set aside. Step 3 Work one ornament at a time and pour a little of your ready-pour paint inside your ornament. You will have a little pool of paint at the bottom. Step 4 Now pour another color on top of the first. Continue to pour a little paint of multiple colors. Vary the order and amount poured. TIP: There is no measured amount. You just need enough to coat the inner surface. Step 5 Now, roll the paint around and allow the paint to move inside your ornament. It will create a marble effect as it moves. Do this until the entire inside is covered. TIP: If you don’t have enough paint inside your ornament, you can always add more and continue rolling around. Step 6 Set your ornament, upside-down, inside a disposable cup so the ornament is towards the top of the cup. Allow the excess paint to drain for about an hour or so; then, Turn the ornament around so the opening is facing up and let the paint dry. Step 7 Return the tops to your ornament. TIP: Add a piece of ribbon to the top and hang in your tree or you can add personalization with vinyl or a paint pen!   Share your project photos with #MakeItWithMichaels
