How to make concha ornaments
One day while walking through the craft store, I dismissed these glass bulbs because I’ve made so many of them in the past. Just as I made it past the display, feeling good that I didn’t get sucked in…the idea of using Puffy Paint to make concha ornaments popped into my head.
Then I ended up filling my cart with about 12 boxes of the ornaments.
Anyway – at least they turned out wonderful! I made a video showing the process, but there’s a trick. I found an everyday tool to make the perfect indention into the paint to make it looked like baked good. You’ll have to watch the video to see! 😉
SUPPLIES for How to make concha ornaments:
Glass or plastic bulbs, the flatter ones
Watered down white glue
Pink Puffy Paint
Indentation nail tool (see video)
Paper to catch glitter overflow
Remove the topper from the ornament and set aside.
Pour a bit of watered down glue in the ornament and move around until it is completely covered. While the glue is wet, pour in the glitter and turn upside over the paper for the excess glitter to fall out.
Let dry, leave off the top.
Apply the pink Puffy Paint on the top of the ornament and smooth it with your finger.
Use the nail tool to create the grooves in the wet Puffy Paint.
Add bit of clear glitter on the wet paint and let dry.
Let everything dry for 24 hours, then attach the top. Enjoy your new concha ornaments!
Create each one different with patterns and flavor colors!
