Instructions

Step 1
Add some Wicker White paint to the inside of ornament and swirl around until the inside is completely covered. Turn upside down and let it drain. Allow to dry.

Step 2
Once dry, cut out the zigzag elements from paper and glue to ball with Mod Podge® Matte. Refer to photo for placement. Allow to dry.

Step 3
Cut out the circles from paper and glue them so that the yellow zigzags and the other colours cross over. Allow to dry.

Step 4
Add Mod Podge® Sparkle to the circles. The more coats you add the more glitter will show. Allow to dry.

Step 5
Add stitching with the liner brush in Licorice to the vertical zigzags. Add dots with the end of the paintbrush.

Step 6
Add a top coat of Matte Mod Podge® only on the vertical zigzags. Once everything has dried, remove any excess that ended up on the glass of the ornament with the craft knife.

Step 7
Tie ornament with a black ribbon from the hanger.

Tips

Make a hole in a Styrofoam® bowl the same size as the ornament top. Turn the bowl upside down. Insert the ornament upside down to drain.
