Decoart Holiday Ornament Collection and Giveaway

Decoart has done it again with an amazing giveaway for the holidays! But before we get to those juicy details, a little DIY for you!

Each and every year, I either make or get new ornaments for my husband, son and myself. It's a tradition that my parents did with me, and one that I wanted to continue with my family.

This year, I was really excited to put the DecoArt Multi Surface Satin and Gloss Enamels Writers to the test.


Clear Glass Ornaments
DecoArt Multi Surface Satin (I chose Deep Scarlet to match another project I completed recently)
DecoArt 3D Gloss Enamels Writers in Opaque (I chose Gold and Silver)

First, pop the silver top off of your ornament. Next, pour some of your Multi Surface Satin into the glass ornament and swirl it around to make sure you've covered all of the ornament. Sometimes it helps to add a little bit of water to the paint to thin in out so it covers more easily. One of my ornaments is covered completely while the other one didn't turn out so well.

Flip it over and let the excess drain out, and allow to dry ('s not super important that it be 100% dry on the inside, as you're done with that surface now!)

Once your ornament is mostly dry, use your 3D Gloss Enamels Writers to draw on your designs. I went with a milkglass inspired look, so lots of staggered dots.

Allow to dry completely.

Once they're dry, you're good to hang them on your tree, put with your garlands or even in a glass bowl as a beautiful centrepiece!! Easy peasy, and oh so beautiful!

Now...for the giveaway!
