Bold & Bright DIY Ornaments.

When it comes to the holidays, the more color the better in my mind! Growing up we were never that family with a fancy themed Christmas tree – it was always a hodgepodge of ornaments, all with a special memory or story behind them which made decorating the tree so much fun every year. As an adult, I’ve carried the tradition of keeping Christmas bright and colorful and inspired by IZZE Sparkling Juice cans, I wanted to spread the bold & bright holiday spirit around with a few DIY ornaments to gift to friends and family.

I like to keep things simple in the DIY department, especially around the holidays so these are all easy to whip up in a few hours and only require a few supplies (win!) and basically zero crafting skills (double win!). If you’re still stumped on what to gift extended family or co-workers, a cute DIY ornament for their tree is the perfect idea since it’s unique and personal but won’t break the bank or take you a ton of time.

Three ideas to give clear glass ornaments a bold & bright makeover:

Confetti Filled Ornaments: This one’s as easy as it gets and actually is my favorite of the bunch – grab any small confetti (I used this!) and fill the inside of the ornaments with an ample amount using either a small funnel, or just your hands. Leave enough room for the confetti to move around a bit when shaken and voila — an instant party for their Christmas tree!

Glitter Ornaments: I made a set of these almost ten years ago and they still make it onto my tree each year – the sparkle always looks so pretty with the Christmas lights. Using a foam brush and tacky glue, coat the exterior of the glass ornament evenly and top with glitter, shaking off excess (I like to do this over a paper plate so you can easily funnel extra glitter back into the bottle when you’re done). Martha Stewart makes THE BEST glitter in the prettiest colors so you can customize your glitter picks for each recipient. Let ornaments dry and top with a coat of gloss Mod Podge to seal the glitter and minimize mess.

Paint Swirl Ornaments: Pour a few drops of acrylic paint inside the ornament, starting with one color at a time and swirl around until you’ve created a desired pattern. Repeat with other complimentary colors until the entire ornament has been covered and let dry facing downward, using a plastic cup to allow excess paint to drain out.

Do you stick to red & green during the holidays or get colorful? Have you made any DIY ornaments this year?

    Love making homemade ornaments and especially if they hold up over time. Those drinks look pretty good.
