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

Gold glitter

Pink Puffy Paint

Indentation nail tool (see video)

Crystal glitter

Plastic cups

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.
