Doodled Henna Christmas Ornaments
Lotus flowers, Diwali, and all things eastern influence these DIY puffy paint henna ornaments for a unique ornament that still has a very festive Christmas feel. I created different designs on each clear glass ornament, inspired by the patterns and emblems in eastern culture. These ornaments come together really fast and are a great project to do with friends. Everyone can create their own custom take on henna, bringing it to a Christmas ornament!
Stick a bamboo skewer vertically in a piece of craft foam. This will support the ornament while you decorate it.
Carefully remove the metal topper from the glass ornament. Keep this handy - you’ll need to replace it after the paint is dry so you can hang the ornament.
Slip the ornament onto the bamboo skewer so that the ornament is upside down.
Start drawing a circle on the very bottom of the ornament using Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint. This will be the basis for the design, where all the other pieces will radiate out from.
Add doodles, scallops, dots, lotus petals, and arcs with the puffy paint, working down the sides of the ornament.
If you make a mistake, use a cotton swab to wipe away the mistake before the paint dries.
Continue adding paint until the entire ornament is covered with doodles. Look at henna tattoos or eastern drawings while creating to get inspired.
Allow the ornament to dry for at least an hour before handling. Insert the metal topper into the top of the of the ornament.
Consider using colors other than gold to create multi-colored henna style ornaments. Decorate the tree with these, hang them from ribbons in a window, or gather them in a bowl as a pretty tabletop decoration.
