Deco Art Acrylic Paint
Today I am partnering with one of our sponsors Deco Art! We love working with acrylic paint. So you can imagine how excited we were to receive these paints from Deco Art. Can you guess which one was our favorite? The Galaxy Glitter of course!
Dollar Tree Ornaments
For this ornament craft I used plastic globe ornaments from Dollar Tree. I bought the small and large sizes. They both work great for this project.
If working with younger children, I suggest using the smaller globes. Those come in a two pack for only $1! The smaller globes work better for their little hands.
Also, there is not as much space to cover with the paint. My little one got a bit frustrated during the process since she insisted on doing one of the big ornaments first.
This ornament craft is super simple! The hardest part is choosing which paint colors to start with. Once you have that nailed down, start by squirting one of the colors into the bottom of the globe ornament.
I recommend using two to three different colors. When squirting in the next color, turn the ornament a little so the paint is in a different location inside the globe. Repeat the process for the next color.
Once the paint is inside the globe, hold your finger over the opening and start shaking. The paint will start covering the entire inside of the globe ornament.
Once the ornament is filled with paint, place it upside down in a plastic cup or other container. The excess paint will drain out and allow the paint to dry inside the globe.
It will take a day or two for the paint to dry. Then put the top back onto the ornament. The small ornaments have a hanger attached to the top. I used a pretty snowfake ribbon to create a hanger for the larger ones.
See how sparkly the Galaxy Glitter paint made these ornaments! I can’t wait to do more crafts with this paint.
