If you're looking for an ornament that's a little bit out of the ordinary but still really easy to make yourself, you're in the right place! If you can paint even a somewhat straight line with a brush, these brushstroke ornaments are for you. The bright pink crosshatching will add a mod touch to your Christmas tree and the glitter will provide a bit of sparkle.

Here's what you'll need:

  • White Ceramic Ornaments. I got these at Michaels.
  • Glass Paint. I used Martha Stewart Opaque Gloss in Raspberry Ice
  • Mod Podge
  • Fine Glitter. I used my favorite, Martha Stewart Smoky Quartz
  • Liner Paint Brush
  • Ribbon

Clean the ornament with soap and water or rubbing alcohol. Once dry, paint fine vertical lines of varying lengths and thicknesses on one side of the ornament. Follow up with randomly placed horizontal lines, overlapping the vertical ones here and there. Let dry before turning over and painting the other side. Follow the instructions on the paint bottle for curing: either let air dry or let dry in the oven.

Afterwards, paint vertical and horizontal strokes with the Mod Podge and sprinkle with glitter. Let dry. Tie up with the ribbon and hang on your tree!
