Gilded Leaves Ornament

I am so excited to share with you all the glass ornaments I'm making this year!  Last year, I posted a marble type ornament that was so simple to make.  This year, I'm upping my game.  But don't worry; it's still totally doable!

You will need:

  • Martha Stewart multi-surface paint in (metallic) brushed bronze, (pearl) gold mother of pearl, and (glitter) florentine gold
  • Glass ornaments
  • Red ribbon
  • Tiny little jingle bells
  • Paint brush

First, squeeze some of the gold mother of pearl inside an ornament.  Then, put on some Taylor Swift and shake, shake, shake until the inside is covered.  You'll want to put this upside down on a paper towel to drain any excess.

Next, take the brushed bronze and paint thin lines down the sides of the ornament, stopping about halfway down.  Vary the length and angle of the lines to make it more natural and random.

Add on some leaves by dabbing the brushed bronze up the sides of the lines.

Finally, load up your brush with the florentine gold and glob some glitter over the bottom half of each set of leaves.

Add some red ribbon and a little jingle bell, and it's ready to go on the tree!

So simple!
