    Hi all! As I posted early, I took the old paint off the old ornaments I got...

    Then I repainted them. I decided on a blue silver and white decoration this year...

    I like the way they ended up. Hope they look good on the tree. Got lots of them! The large ones are swirl painted inside the bulbs and the little ones are painted on the outside.

    Gosh those are really pretty aren't they? I would love to see a photograph of them again once they're hung on your tree. People pay lots of money for handmade Christmas decorations that don't look nearly as good as the ones you've made. Well done!!

    Great job.

    I use empty egg cartons when I craft with gourds and river rocks. Great for things to dry on.

    Thanks for sharing your project. I have a box of clear ornaments to work on, too.

    They turned out very well, and I'd also love to see them on the tree. :D

    An excellent way to recycle old ornaments. It would be nice to see them on the tree. A job well done!!

    I love these, they inspire me to re-craft a few of my old ornaments too.

    Those look fantastic. How did you paint in the inside of the larger ones?

    To paint the insides, I poured a stream of each of the three paint colors on different sides of the inside of the ornament, covered the top and shook like crazy till all the insides were covered. I saw this on a video on the internet and thought I'd try it. I really like how it looks.

    Thanks for all the compliments! I'll post the tree when it's up!
