Are you crazy about all the gorgeous marble accents that are popping up everywhere? Me too! We’ve all boarded the marble train and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon. If buying authentic marble is a bit out of your price range, I’ve got the perfect tutorial for you. This Easy Marble Christmas Ornament is a breeze to make and customize with just a few awesome craft supplies. Since they’re totally customize-able, you could even turn them into super fancy gift tags that can be enjoyed on the tree year after year!

Step 1. Fill a container that’s large enough to dunk your ornament in with water. Begin by adding a few drop of white marble paint. There should be an even layer of white film floating on the surface of the water.
Step 2. Add a few drops of black paint. I’d suggest starting off with just three drops and then adding more if you want.
Step 3. Use a straw or dowel to swirl the black and white marble paint until you’re happy with the look.
Step 4. Use a pair of pliers to hold the ornament and carefully dip the ornament all the way through the film layer.
Step 5. Lift up the ornament and turn over to admire your handiwork!
Step 6. You can either leave the ornament as is or customize with some foil. Use the liquid adhesive to write out a word in the center of your ornament.
Step 7. Follow the drying instructions for the liquid adhesive (24 hours) and then gently press the foil over dried letters to apply.
Step 8. Remove foil to marvel at how pretty the foil looks on the marble ornament!
I absolutely love the contrast between the shiny foil and marble ornament! As I mentioned above, these would work beautifully as gift tags if you switched out “love” with someone’s name. They could use the gift tag as an ornament year after year. Hope you enjoy making your own Easy Marble Christmas Ornament!
