Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments

There is something about Christmas that screams CRAFT at me. I know, I know, we craft every season, but Christmas is probably my favorite. Maybe because you can make a memory, hang it on the tree, pack it up, and gush all over it again when you unpack it the next year. This year is no exception and we started early creating these fun Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments.Create these DIY Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments using upcycled jar lids. This craft is fun and easy to create for beautiful photo holding decoration.

 

The base for these are jar lids, so start collecting!

I have used them before for my garden labels so I already had a few lying around.

 

What you need to make your own Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments:

Making your Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments:

First, paint all of your jar lids with a base coat.  I chose white, for the most part, it won’t show through.

In your disposable container add about half an inch of water.

Slowly pour a little bit of each color you would like in your marbling.Create these DIY Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments using upcycled jar lids.

If it starts to build upon your toothpick wipe it off.

Once you have a good pattern take and place your lid down in the paint, lift back up and lay to dry.Create these DIY Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments using upcycled jar lids. This craft is fun and easy to create for beautiful photo holding decoration.

Use a little more of your base color to touch up the edges.

Add ribbon around the outer edge using dabs of hot glue to secure in place. Add a drop at the top and add a loop to hang.Create these DIY Marbled Picture Christmas Ornaments using upcycled jar lids.

Thank you! I agree homemade means more. You can remember making them together... When they are grown those are the things that are special as you unpack your ornaments.
