DIY Ombre Ornaments
To make the ornaments, you will need: DecoArt transparent Glass Stain, clear glass ornaments, string, a small round bowl to dip the ornament in, and a paper grocery bag to catch any drips. Step 1: Clean/dust outside of ornament with a damp cloth. Step 2: Empty out entire bottle of glass stain into your dish. Step 3: Tie end of a ~12 inch long string to top of the ornament. Knot a loop on the other end to hang the ornament while the paint dries. Step 4: Wrap string around your hand and fingers so that it isn’t in the way, and submerge ornament about halfway. Pull out, letting paint drip off, then submerge again about 1/3 of the way. Pull ornament out, then submerge in smaller increments. Step 5: Hang ornament over a paper grocery bag to drip-dry. I hung my ornaments off my cabinet knobs in the kitchen. The stain will pool to the bottom of the ornament, creating a little bubble. While the paint is wet, gently wipe this off with your fingertip. I left the ornaments to dry, but returned every 10 minutes to wipe off more paint. If the paint hardens, this is a little trickier to do. Just smooth it against the ornament gently. Step 6: Cover any leftover paint with plastic wrap (use this paint for step 7). Step 7: When the first layer of stain is completely dried. I dipped just the lower 1/4 my ornament back in to deepen the color. Let dry.
