Remove tops of ornaments and set aside. Pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol into glass ornaments, shake and swirl to clean inside of each ornament.
Squirt a single FolkArt® Extreme Glitter paint color into each ornament. Place a finger over opening, then shake and swirl ornaments to completely cover inside of ornament with paint, adding paint as needed. When inside is coated, turn ornaments upside down and drain over a paper cup. Once paint has drained, place ornaments on cup so openings are exposed to air. Continuously rotate ornaments (several times an hour) until paint is completely dry (color will be bold and glistening). Add an additional coat of paint, then drain and dry if desired.
Place stencil blank on cutting mat. Using craft knife, cut a random pointed snowflake design approximately 1" in diameter from stencil blank. Leaving an approximate 1/8" edge, cut a square around the snowflake design to create a removable snowflake stencil.
For the red ornament, remove the center snowflake design from backing sheet, position on the center of ornament. Using dauber, apply Wicker White around the snowflake design. Carefully remove the snowflake then use liner brush to complete a square around snowflake design. Using handle end of liner brush, add accent and accent dot center of snowflake and create a decorative border in Magenta. Let dry.
For the hologram ornament, remove the square snowflake stencil from backer sheet and position on ornament. Applying paint with dauber, stencil the snowflake design in Aqua. Reposition stencil to add snowflake designs around the entire ornament. Using handle end of liner brush, add accent dots of Wicker White. Let dry.
For the silver ornament, remove the square snowflake stencil from backer sheet and position on ornament. Applying paint with dauber, stencil the snowflake design in Wicker White. Reposition stencil to add snowflake designs around the entire ornament. Using handle end of liner brush, add accent dots of Wicker White and Gold. Let dry.
Return caps to tops of ornaments. Cut ribbon, thread through cap and knot to secure a loop for hanging.
