DIY It - Colorful and Easy Gradient Ornaments

Tomorrow is the big turkey day, and I know you have a bunch of last minute shopping and planning and cooking to get done (or maybe that's just me!), so I will make today's DIY post short and sweet. Not only will be the post be short, but this DIY is so quick and easy, that you can even get started even after you have stuffed your face and are in a food induced stupor.

If you remember back a few weeks, I was a tad bit gradient obsessed, and created several DIY's around gradients. Well, the obsession didn't end there, I took that concept and applied it to a few clear glass ornaments and created a colorful swirly whirl of color, just like I like!

The Supplies:
  • Clear Glass ornaments
  • Spray paint in at least three coordinating colors (I used light pink, salmon, and hot pink for one set and turquoise, light blue, and lime green for the other set)
  • Sticks or dowel rods appx. 1/3"-1/2" in diameter

Begin by removing the top of the ornaments and place them upside down on the dowel rods. Use the dowel rod to hold your ornament up while you use your spray paint to spray bursts of paint onto random sections of the ornament. Repeat with all the colors until your ornament is covered. Place your dowel rod into a piece of styrofoam or holes in a cardboard box to let the paint dry. Once dry, replace the cap of the ornament and hang on your bright and colorful tree.

See, like I said, short and sweet, but so much better than plain solid color ornaments don't you think? Okay, okay. I will let you get back to your meal prep. Happy Turkey Day!
