Step 1: Remove hangers from glass ornaments
Step 2: Create and insert funnel
Cut a scrap piece of paper or magazine into a square. Hold one corner and wrap around your finger to create a cone-shaped funnel. Insert the funnel into the open end of ornament.
Step 3: Pour paint into the funnel
Carefully pour a small amount of paint into the funnel. Allow the paint to drip into the ornament.
Step 4: Swirl color in ornament
Remove the funnel and gently swirl paint around to cover inside of the ornament.
Step 5: Empty excess paint
When the inside of the ornament has been completely covered, empty the excess paint back into the sample pot.
Step 6: Allow to dry
Place the ornaments, open side down, in their package to dry. If you need to apply a second coat, do so after the first coat has completely dried.
Step 7: Apply spray adhesive
Spray the bottom of the ornaments lightly with spray adhesive. Allow the glue to dry until tacky before adding the gold leaf.
Step 8: Apply gold/silver leaf
When the adhesive has dried slightly and is tacky, apply metallic leaf and tap in place with a dry brush.
Step 9: Apply sealer
When content with the metallic look of your ornaments, brush off any loose leaf pieces and spray in place with a sealer. Allow to dry.
Step 10: Insert hanger and decorate
Step 11: Display ornaments in a frame (optional).
Thread ornaments with string and hot glue to the back of an old window frame. When the glue is cool, cut off excess string and display.
