Ever try to stencil something round and smooth like a glass ornament? It can be tough to stencil on the outside, so I found an easier way – put the pattern on the inside!
Why Christmas now? I’m playing in the Christmas in July blog hop with StencilGirl Products and Imagine Crafts with a $100 giveaway too! Find all the details and links to all the holiday inspiration at the end of this post.
I started with clear glass ornaments available at any major craft store but that ornament wasn’t going to stay clear. I wanted some color. irRESISTible is a wonderful texture spray but today I am not using it that way. I am pouring some LadyBug red irRESISTible right into the ornament.
As a side note…based on my experiments, the darker colors work best because what starts out as a very deep red becomes the most wonderful translucent red by the time it has fully drained and dried.
In the video you’ll see how I put these together, including how to actually get the right size of circle to fit in the glass ornament without measuring.

Stazon inks are easy to use with stencils and as a bonus they work on any smooth surface too. I used MB Makes Marks Marker, Ornamental Compass Screen, and Damask Waves with a cosmetic sponge and the black Stazon reinker.
In order to get the stenciled images inside the ornament, you need something flexible and sturdy like Durlar Wet Media. This is way easier to show than tell type of process, so check out the video where you can see exactly how to get the stenciling to be upright in the ornament.
