Joy and Noel Ornaments with FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint

I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!
These ornaments will add a touch of cheer to your holidays!

Instructions

  1. Begin by wiping the exterior of your glass ornament with a paper towel moistened with rubbing alcohol. This will clean the glass of any impurities such as grease, dirt or hand lotion.
  2. Load your large flat brush with Cardinal Red and paint a wide stripe around the belly of the glass ornament. Allow the paint to dry and repeat a couple more applications until you have /tmp/tmpC0iYJN opaque coverage. Be sure to allow each application to thoroughly dry before adding the next.
  3. Load the No. 4 flat brush with Classic Green and paint a narrow band just above and below the wide Cardinal Red band. I positioned this band slightly above yet allowed some glass space between. Again repeat until you have opaque coverage.
  4. Still working with the No. 4 flat brush, paint Wicker White “Joy” and “Noel” across the center of the red band. Highlight each letter with a thin stripe using your liner brush. If desired, add a couple strokes and a dot of Wicker White on each side of the word as a painted embellishment.
  5. Using the handle end of the liner brush, paint Wicker White dots around the top and bottom border of the red band.
  6. Load your liner brush with thinned Wicker White and paint a few brush strokes around the green bands. Allow to dry.
  7. If desired, add a ribbon bow at the top when dry and hang on your tree to enjoy! 
Tip: I did not add a ribbon bow at the ornament top; however, I usually do on most hand created ornaments. To me, it just adds a finishing touch! Use a special holiday plaid ribbon of red and green or perhaps a sheer organza ribbon to dress up your ornament.
