A few years ago my mom and I were in a craft store and found this idea. I had planned on making a bunch that year, but slacked. They've moved with me and I finally got around to decorating more of them this year.
Basically you find a peel and stick stained glass paint and go to town on glass balls. Either using the paints directly on the ornaments or by painting onto a flat surface and transferring it onto the ornament.
Here's the ones I've done so far using different ideas. I'm sure I'll have more by the time Christmas rolls around so I'll be sure to post them.
Let me know if you have any questions or just what you think.
If there's an ornament in the group photo you have questions about, let me know.
Here's the lot I've done so far:
These are done by just randomly squirting colors on the balls.
This one is done by painting the ball and then painting the circles on a flat surface, filling with sparkles, and peeling/sticking those on top.
This is the one my hubby made. I just wanted to show off his crafty skills.
And this one is done by painting the inside of the ball and then using leading paint outside.
I'll be sure to add more as I have pictures and as I make them.
