Painted glass ornaments

I decided to give the Martha Stewart multi surface craft paint and stencils a shot on some glass ornaments this past week. I went with the color jet stream, so pretty and subtle.


First I used rubbing alcohol and wiped the glass to remove any residue.

I positioned the stencil on the glass making sure to flatten it everywhere.

Using a craft brush I painted over the stencil.

Lift the adhesive stencil straight up carefully so you don’t  smear or smudge the design. Continue adding more until your satisfied.

I added a few pearls on the bottom and voila, so pretty!

I added some faux snow in a few of the other ornamnets.


Such an easy DIY craft

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  1. So beautiful, Kristin! I love that you added pearls in there, too! I need to get my Christmas craft on … thanks for the inspiration! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Lovely! I’ve been wanting to paint some bulbs, so this is a perfect inspiration. I was thinking that Epsom Salts would also make a great and inexpensive filler too.

  3. That is so pretty! I bet they’ll be gorgeous when the tree lights are twinkling!
    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving my lovely friend! We have family coming to stay with us so I’ll be a maniac all week trying to make my house look presentable. Having guests is the best motivation! Hope you enjoy some time with your family!

  4. I think your ornaments are beautiful Kristin! The pearls are so pretty…what a nice touch. They’d make a lovely hostess gift, too. I would like to make some of these. Hope you’ve had a good weekend. Did the rain pass by you? We’ve had quite a bit. It’s been nice to stay inside and cook and do projects.

  5. Kristin – what a simple, sweet way to make a simple decoration into something beautiful! I love the softness of the color. It makes it look like it’s been glass etched….something else that I would like to try in the future. 🙂
