Ready for more safari print ornament fun?  Hang out with me and see how easy it is to paint your own zebra print ornament.

As I mentioned in this tutorial, DecoArt sent me an incredible assortment of glass paints and a stencil to work with.   For my second ornament, I went with the zebra stencil.  I love the end result!

Supplies Needed:

Glass Ornament
Americana Reusable Stick on Stencil:  Safari
Americana Gloss Enamels:  Black and Metallic Silver

How to make your own zebra print ornament:
Step 1:  Paint the inside of the ornament silver.  I had to use a small angled brush to paint the sides and top.
Step 2:  Apply the stencil (it’s adhesive) to the ornament.  The stencil was too large for my ornament, so I only used one small section at a time (as pictured).
Step 3:  Dab the black paint onto the stencil with a foam pouncer.  Remove and clean the stencil with a wet washcloth.
Step 4:  Repeat until the pattern covers the ornament.
You can fix stray marks by painting over them with a paintbrush.  Another option is to use a craft razor or a scraping tool to gently remove the stray marks.
