I have had so much fun doing other paint pour projects this year, that I wanted to add some paint pour Christmas ornaments to this tree. This is a fun, and a little messy, way to give cheap ornaments an upgrade. I used Color Shift paint because the shifting metallic finish worked perfectly with this tree, but you can use whatever kind of craft paint you have on hand.
I am thrilled to be one of the hosts for this month’s round of Craft Lightning! Thirty-nine bloggers will be sharing lightning fast holiday projects, while Angie, Carolina and I each add five of our own new tutorials. Check out all the projects from Day 1 and Day 2!
I’ve had so much fun doing paint pour projects this year! It’s so satisfying to watch the paint swirl and drip. Check out my short video to see how to make your own paint pour ornaments. I usually share two new videos on my YouTube channel each week, but this week is special. I will be sharing a brand new video tutorial every weekday this week!

I thinned my paint out a little bit more than I was planning to. It made the paint pour very easily, but the color is not as opaque as I had expected. I do kind of like the pastel metallic finish that I ended up with, so it was a happy accident!
