  1. Paint the Christmas tree ornament bauble with two coats of green acrylic paint.

  4. Add embellishments with hot glue.

1. Paint the Christmas Ornaments

Start by painting your ornaments shade of green with acrylic paint. I mixed several different shades since I was making more than one ornament.

NOTE: I did two coats of paint so that there would be no streaks and the ornament would have full coverage.

3. Glue To Mini Flower Pot

Add hot glue to your mini flower pot and add the ornament.

NOTE: I would remove then hot glue the silver top of the ornament just to be sure the hold is strong.
