At Christmas time I love to get creative with my decor. Sometimes that means making my own decor! These DIY ornaments are easy to make and look like they’re coated with ice.
To make these icy ornaments all you need is a few plain glass ball ornaments, some glitter paint and BIC Mark-It® permanent markers.
Take the paint and swirl it around inside of the ornament. (I tried both white and blue but liked the white best) You will need to keep turning the ornament while the paint dries to ensure it doesn’t pool in any one spot. (In the end, I turned it upside down and let it dry while the remaining paint drained out.)
I decided to use #Sapphire, a pretty blue metallic marker to draw snowflakes on the ornament paper. You could draw holly or anything else Christmas-y that you are capable of drawing. (I am barely capable of drawing a snowflake…)
See? Easy and pretty. Just my kind of project!
BIC Mark-It® permanent markers available in 36 packs of fine or ultra-fine bold, vibrant colors or the 8 pack of metallic colors. (Do the math: that’s 44 great colors.) I used #Sapphire as the primary color for my #BICMerryMarking project. By the way, the bold, fade-resistant ink is low odor and acid free, which means creativity is the only high you’ll be on. 🙂
Do you know friends who are looking for a little holiday inspiration? I have a few blogger friends I know could do something fabulous with these wonderful markers… (30 Minute Crafts, Flamingo Toes and The Country Chic Cottage would have great ideas for BIC’s Month of Merry Marking!)
