You can fill glass ball ornaments with yarn, twine, feathers, fake snow, pine needles and random craft supplies. You can also fill them with paint! It’s so easy to do. All you need is a clear ornament and your favorite acrylic paint.
Squirt about a teaspoon of paint directly into the ornament. Slowly swirl it around until it coats the inside.
Use a plastic bottle or paper cup to store the ornament upside down. Leave it there overnight so that all the excess paint runs out. Add the metal cap and voila!
I also tried filling with Martha Stewart’s flocking powder. It leaves a nice, cotton candy-like texture.
Using varnish to coat another ornament, I poured some candy sprinkles inside!
