DIY Christmas Ornaments

I wanted a simple little Christmas gift that Lila could help me make, to give to the special people in her life. I have to admit, after the first couple, Lila lost interest, and I ended up doing most of them by myself, but I had so much fun picking the color combinations and seeing how they turned out! All you do it get some hollow glass ornaments (I got mine at Michael's) and drizzle some craft paint in your choice of colors, put the cover on, and shake them up! If I try this again I would remove the cap and give the paint a chance to dry because after a few days some of the paint settled in the ornaments, but most of the stayed cute!
These were the perfect little gift for Lila to give to a few special adults!
Did you do any DIY gifts this year?


  1. Wow, those are so pretty! I really like the ones in the middle that look like they have some pink in them. One DIY holiday thing I did was my boyfriend & I made homemade frosted pecans & put them in mason jars to give to friends & family. Everyone went crazy over them!

  2. What a great idea, I love the ones with gold and purple.
