Materials List

  • 1 Bottle of White Paint
  • 1 Bottle of Blue Paint
  • 1 Piece of Yellow Rhinestone Sticker Sheet
  • 1 Rubber Band
  • 1 Round Ornament
  • 1 Bow Die Cut

Instructions

  1. I started with a plain glass ornament, and I painted the whole thing white with primer.  Now, you could start off with a white ornament, but all I had was the clear ones so that is why I decided to just go with that and paint the whole thing.

  2. Then I placed a rubber band around the center of the ornament.  This made it easy for me to find the middle and visually play around with that rubber band to make sure it was straight . . . or as straight as I could get it.  You could use tape, but I found that when I was trying to tape it I could not tell if I was right in the middle of the ornament as well, so that is why I decided to use the rubber band trick.

  3. I used a paper cup to rest the ornament in as I painted either end.  This way I did not have to worry about setting it down and having paint come off.  When I was painting the bottom, the top was down in the cup and then when that was dry I flipped it to do the other half.  I painted the top half royal blue, like the color of Donald Duck's shirt.

  4. Once the paint was dry, I cut a strip of the yellow rhinestone sticker sheet from The Buckle Boutique with scissors and peeled of the backing and attached it to the ornament.  I love these sticker sheets!  Just cut off the amount of rhinestones and sparkle that you need, peel off the backing and stick!  SO EASY!  With loose rhinestones I would have gone NUTS trying to line them all up in three rows like this!  Can you imagine how long that would have taken?

  5. Last, I used my Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge to cut a large red bow to place on the center of the ornament.  I even added a little sparkle to Donald's bow tie by cutting it from a glitter sheet.  I used a pop dot to attach it to the ornament.
