Painted Ornament Clusters
WHAT YOU NEED
Ribbon | Craft paint | Wood skewers | Styrofoam base | Clear glass bulbs
WHAT YOU DO
Pick out coordinating ribbon and paint colors. Insert skewers into the Styrofoam base.
Remove tops from clear glass bulbs.
Squeeze paint into bulbs and swirl into a design. Once painted, turn bulb upside down and place on skewer to dry.
Watch excess paint ooze out.
Allow to dry completely (it may take several days). Remove from skewers and return tops to bulbs.
Measure varying lengths of ribbon (making sure they lay nicely in a cluster), and tie a single ribbon to each bulb.
Tie the dangling end of the ribbon in a knot and hang.
