Santa's Belly Ornaments

I saw a blog make these (sorry, I can't remember the name!-I always try to give credit where credit is due). I bought some clear glass ornaments at Michaels, used some left over scrapbook paper from Karsyns birthday, black and white puffy paint.

Cut the paper into strips they can be various widths if you would like. I used 1/2 strips. Gently remove the top of the ornament. Using  a pencil or pen and wind the paper around it and then pull it off the end. I then made sure it was a super tight curl and stuffed it into the ornament where is loosened up a little. Continue until Santa's belly is suficiently full. Replace the top.  

I then masked off the black belt area with blue painters tape and filled in the belt but if you are awesome at free hand painting go for it. Once dried remove the tape and paint a white or silver belt buckle onto the belt. Tie a ribbon on top to hang. Great hostess gift, or I think the blog I found this on used it for a craft project for Sunday School

Do you have any idea on the drying time? I was thinking about this for a school project. They are so cute!

I think a few hours until the puff paint was tacky. I am guessing if you do the project one day and let them take it home the next it would work out best. You can have them dry in open apple crates or egg cartons so they don't roll.

Very cute, I wonder how they would look with little santa hats glued on.

How did you tape off a straight line?? I feel craft but I'm not very talented and I can't seem to even tape off a straight line :( Not a good start to my Christmas gifts :(

Thanks so much for sharing! I found plastic 8mm balls at Michael's and hoping to use those instead of the glass. I'm making them for all of my girlfriends at my annual Christmas party and hoping that the plastic ones will hold up longer since they won't break. We all have lots of young Children and they are always pulling things off the tree! I'm also hoping the puffy paint will stay onto the plastic just as good as your glass ones. :) Cheers and thanks again!

I used blue painters tape, and adjusted it a little at a time all the way around by sight. Use an exacto knife after the paint dries to take the tape off when the puff paint dries

we made these as teacher gifts this year. they came out so cute! but i used curling ribbon inside rather than paper. giving them out next week at their christmas parties!

Andrea said...

I bought clear plastic ornaments for school. Then put paint inside with a bead and kids shook it up to spread paint around the inside. We then used a black sharpie for the belt and a silver one for the buckle. They look really cute!!

These are the sweetest ornaments. So whimsical and cute! Thanks for sharing!

Shannon said...

What size is the ornament? I want to make these and I have the choice between 2 5/8" and 3 1/4" ornaments. Just wondering if the larger size will be cuter/easier... Thanks! Shannon

Liz H said...

I think I used the larger size but as long as you can get the paper into the top opening it doesn't matter it is a matter of personal choice and what look you prefer

Katie Adams said...

Where did you get your clear glass ornaments? I can't seem to find them anywhere...

Liz H said...

I picked mine up at Michaels but I have seen them at Joann's Fabrics and Hobby Lobby they usually come in a 4 pack
