To make:


1. Remove the metal hanger from an ornament. Select a paint colour and pour the paint inside the ornament. Roll the ornament around until the inside it completely coated in paint.

2. Place the ornament upside down in the egg carton overnight. This will allow it to dry and for any access paint to escape.

3. Once the ornament is dry, replace the metal hanger.
