Christmas Bubble Glass Ornaments [diy]

painted ornament4

I’ll admit that I’m a borderline crazy, DIY fanatic.  There are very few things that I won’t attempt to make myself (even if they don’t always turn out as planned 😉 )…I guess all of this stemmed from the pure satisfaction it brings me to create something beautiful & meaningful for next to nothing.  I have this feeling more than ever this time of year, especially when it comes to Christmas decor & ornaments.  I love decorating my tree with homemade ornaments and fun pieces we’ve collected over the years.  This weekend, I made a few more ornaments using simple glass Christmas balls from the craft store, here they are!

I started out with simple glass ball ornaments that I picked up at Michael’s.  I used two sizes, large and medium.

Next, I used some of my favorite gloss enamel paints to simply paint funky patterns onto the ornaments.  I did two basic patterns, chevron and polka dots.  Why you ask?  They’re easy, and I’m a terrible artist!

There were so much fun to do, and super easy too.  I think I’ll start a tradition of painting one new glass bubble ornament every year =)

I love giving Christmas classics a funky twist =)
