12 Days of Christmas Hop Day 3

12107899_10154366668620961_5529537663500022800_nWelcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop hosted by the amazing Lisa at Honeybearz Designs! This is my 3rd year of participating in this hop.  I get so excited each and every year to sign up to participate! I would like to personally thank the amazing Elf Lisa for hosting such a fun event.  This year I am doing something different.  I am going to post a different DIY Holiday Christmas bulb using simple craft supplies.  I hope that you will come back everyday to see all 12 Ornaments.  I have been hard at work in Santa’s Workshop to bring you fun projects each and every day! Before we go any further though I want to make sure that you stopped here after visiting our Guest Elf- Connie HERE if you need to start at the beginning be sure to click HERE.

Before we go any further I would like to wish you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all enjoyed your family time and think about all of the things that you are thankful for.

For my 3rd ornament I decided to do the same technique with the paint, but decided to put a spin on things and add a second color.  This created a fun swirl look. I took my plastic bulb that I bought at the Dollar Store and poured Pink paint inside and swirled it around, I wanted it to look a little bit different so I also added white paint and swirled it around. I then tipped it upside down in a paper cup to allow the excess paint to drain out of the bulb.  I allowed it to dry.  I then put the top back on it and added some black ribbon.  I took the end of my sponge paint brush and dipped it in gold paint to create the polka dots on this cute ornament.  To add the finishing touch I added this super cute doll head charm that I purchased at Michaels.
