Make these gorgeous marbled snowflake ornaments using the paint pour method! It’s easy and really fun.
Snowflakes, stars and poinsettias are my favorite things to add to my holiday décor. For ornaments this year, I wanted to add some more snowflakes to my tree and really wanted to try the paint pour method to get a unique, marbled effect.

I’ll admit that I was a little apprehensive about using the paint pour method. It can be a little messy, especially if you are a messy crafter like me. And if you have a toddler, I highly suggest keeping her away while you do this. Don’t be like me!
No two snowflakes are alike, and no two paint pours are alike either. That’s what I love about this craft! DecoArt was kind enough to send me this pack of traditional holiday colored acrylic paints and this paint pour medium.

Marbleized Snowflake Ornaments
- Disposable Cups
- Stir Stick
- Paper Plates
- Wax Paper
- Using a disposable cup for each color, put an equal amount of each acrylic color into a disposable cup.
- Add an equal amount of DecoArt Paint Pouring Medium to each cup and stir with stir stick.
- Slowly pour all the colors into one cup.
- Lay snowflake ornament on a paper plate and start pouring paint medium over the ornament. Use the stir stick to carefully spread the paint to any areas that didn't get poured on.
- Carefully pick up ornament and tilt to get off excess paint.
- Allow to dry flat on waxed paper, for approximately 12 hours.
- Take the blunt end of a skewer or a small paint brush and dip into the Galaxy Glitter paint. Put dots of glitter on the points of the snowflakes and let dry.
- Hang on your tree and enjoy!
Directions for mixing the paint pouring medium are based on the use of acrylic paints. If you are using a different paint, be sure to read the directions on the back of the Paint Pouring Medium bottle.
