These easy DIY ornaments use one of my favorite new techniques-pour painting! These are perfect for all ages and make a great gift idea!

Pour painting is one of those trends that took me a while to try for myself.

I’m so glad I eventually did try it, though! Plaid was kind enough to send me their Pouring Medium to try, and along with some acrylic paints and some ceramic ornaments, I was ready to begin.

Add paint to your ornament, and use a hairdryer to mix and marble the paint together.
