  • 1. Clean and dry ornaments. Follow manufacturer's instructions to spray paint ornaments. Apply thin, light coats until opaque coverage is achieved. Let dry several hours.
  • 2. Hold top and bottom of ornament between thumb and forefinger, to paint embellishments on one side of each. Rest ornaments on top of upside-down stemmed glasses to dry. When dry, paint remaining sides.
  • 3. Snowflakes, polka dots, or swirls: Leave spaces between each, never placing them in a row, in any direction, to avoid a striped effect.
  • 4. Bow: Glue rhinestone at each knot and add loopy bow at top.
  • 5. Retro snowflake: Place dots in a row, graduating in size.
  • 6. Silver spatter swirl ornament: Depress Sterling Silver nozzle slowly and from a distance positioning can over top, spatter over painted swirls.
