Project Instructions

  • 1
    Open up ornament. Squeeze some Pearl Paint into the ornament and pounce paint around evenly on the inside half of the ornament, avoiding getting paint on the outside of the ornament. Repeat for other side and let dry. If needed, pounce another coat on if needed.
  • 2
    Pull some of the Hi-Lites from the package and fill in the ornament. Even though the inside is coated, some areas may be lighter than others and the addition of the iridescent filler will add some a little more color to the ornament, especially when on a tree with lights.
  • 3
    Option: add a small bead of glue or Glossy accents to the seam of the ornament and put together so it will not accidently open up. Trim any excess filler that may stick out from the ornament seams.
  • 4
    Open Bling It packaging and pull a line of the pearls off. The pearls are on a line of adhesive so you can use as many or few as you want!
  • 5
    Place the first string of pearls along the seam of the ornament, starting from the ornament hanger. Repeat for other side. Add additional pearls at the bottom of the ornament as needed so there is a continuous line of pearls.
  • 6
    Repeat with a second line starting 45 degrees from the other line, or as if you were making an X across the ornament.
  • 7
    Divide the two sections you already have by adding a third, then fourth line of pearls around the ornament, adding additional pearls as needed so there is the continuous line going around the ornament.
  • 8
    Add ribbon or ornament hanger; it will be ready for the tree!
