Friday Fun: Let’s Make Some Paint Swirl Ornaments

The holidays are coming up quick! Let us help with a fun gift idea for the grandparents or even some extra decor for your home with paint swirl ornaments! We made a mix of traditional holiday colors, but threw in some construction shades too.

What you’ll need:

  • Paint (we used acrylic)
  • Clear bulb ornaments
  • Paper towels (it can get messy!)


1. Take the top of the ornament off and squeeze a few drops of paint in. Then cover the top of the ornament with your finger and shake. Let the paint dry a little. 

2. Add your second color and shake. Then store upside down to dry. 

3. Let your ornaments dry for a few days, replace the top and hang!
