At the very beginning of the summer, I went to a yard sale that was mainly Christmas decorations. Most of the stuff there wasn’t really speaking to me, but I did come across one great score – some white, glazed ceramic ornaments in various shapes. I snagged the whole set of four for a mere $1!
I already knew what I wanted to do with them; I have a bunch of DecoArt glass paint markers that are great for using on glazed ceramics. A simple design like polka dots was just what they needed.
I used my glass paint markers to make a different polka dot patterns on each ornament. The nice thing about working with these markers is that you have a little window before they dry when you can easily wipe them off, so you can fix any mistakes you make.
These glass paint markers also require that you cure the finished objects in the oven. Directions vary from brand to brand so make sure you read the packaging carefully for the best results.
Then, I replaced the cheap-looking ribbon they were originally strung onto with some new, more colorful ribbon instead, and they were ready to hang on the tree!
