We have been getting ready for the holidays with this pour-paint ornament craft!

This is such a fun way to make ornaments with the kids!
- Acrylic bauble ornaments (I used 100mm diameter)*
- FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint (classic green and apple red)
- Sparkle Mod Podge
- Mod Podge Spouncers
I settled the ornament onto a little cup to hold it off the table and keep it steady. Then I poured the paint down from the top.
The FolkArt paint is great quality and very thick, so in some places I had to help ease it down the ornament with a wooden pick or back of a spoon.
I have always been unsure of which brush to use but these Mod Podge “spouncers” – little sponges with handles – are perfect for Mod Podge application! The sparkle Mod Podge gives quite a subtle effect. There is also a glitter version if you want more impact!
I adapted this craft so that my toddler could try it too! He squeezed paint onto small wooden ornament shapes, then moved the paint around with a wooden pick, small brush and a spork to get different effects. And yes, I did just say spork.
The next day we painted a layer of sparkle Mod Podge over the painted wooden ornaments.
