Paint your own Zebra Print Ornament

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.

DecoArt is giving a stocking full of goodies to one of my readers!  Check out the loot in the picture below, then scroll down to the Rafflecopter widget to enter.  Good luck!

  1. You’re killing me with these ornaments! I want a whole mess of them for a bowl on my coffee table! Love them.

  2. These are so cute! I love that they aren’t heavy too. With a real tree heavy ornaments don’t work.
