43. Ornaments- A tutorial

ANNA, STEPHEN C. OR JOEY stop reading now or your present will be ruined!!!!!!!!!!!!
The problem with making a lot of these projects Christmas presents for everyone, is that many of my friends and family read my blog, therefore they will know what I made them. I could just wait until after Christmas to post those projects, but then my blog would be empty for the next three weeks.
I thought that was lame. Instead I’ve decided to post these things and people can look at their own risk and have the surprise ruined. Oh well.
This project was easy and fun, it just took some patience. 
For this project, you will need.
-A set of clear ornaments-glass or plastic (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
-Craft paint (I bought the cheap stuff at Walmart)
-A print out of some emblems or logos of your choosing.
Step 1: Open up your ornament and drop some paint in there. Aaron was my helper for this one!
Step 2: Swirl the paint around until the ornament is covered (this takes a lot of patience)
Step 3: Flip upside down so all the extra paint runs out. Let them dry.
Step 4: Put the ornaments back together.
Step 5: Cut out your logos
Step 6: Modpodge your logos on. I chose to craft glue them on initially then modpodge over, but using modpodge to stick them on will work to.
Step 7: Let em dry and enjoy!
I hope my friends love these! The superhero ones are for Anna because she is obsessed with Spiderman and the Avengers. Joey and Steve get the Hogwarts ones, because who doesn’t love Harry Potter?
More Christmas gift crafts coming soon!
