Fun Glass Christmas Ornaments with Snowmen using puff paint


I recently purchased some clear glass ornaments from a craft store
and I decided to decorate a few of them with snowmen.. (and some sparkle) :0)



Tools of choice... 

A tiny mason jar (you will find out why soon!), puff paint in white, black, & orange,
 as well as a small piece of silver tinsel, and some silver glitter - not pictured.



What did I use that jar for?


To hold the ornament of course.. :0)

Then I proceeded to paint... using the puff paint...
(I made a collage to share of the tedious painting process... whew,
Ok... it took all of about 2 minutes) :0)



Then I let it dry... (which actually does take a while, I made the mistake of  checking if it had dried
way too early, and one of my snowman ended up a lot less adorable.. :0)


After it has good and dried... :0)
I took the top off, and placed some silver glitter inside one of them, put the top back on and just shook it a little.. the glitter seems to stick to the inside all over and looks really neat.    The second
(less adorable snowman with a finger mushed spot.. ha)  I placed a small piece of silver tinsel inside.

Here is another already hanging out in his spot on the tree...



So have you made any handmade ornaments yet? plan to?
