Falcons Ornament

In my quest to make lots of fun ornaments that weren't too girly and appealed to what Mr. Crafty Scientist likes, I first thought I'd try to create an ornament with Matt Ryan's face on it... but then I remembered what my skill level is with stuff like that and decided to go for the Atlanta Falcons "F" (falcon) logo....

You could do this with any team's logo, but I'll walk you through how I made this one (though I forgot to take any process pictures).

Supplies
  • Glass ornament
  • Red paint (variety of tints and shades)
  • Black paint
  • Plastic cup for draining paint
  • Vinyl with design
  • Black paint pen
  • Silver paint pen
  • Red glitter paint pen
  • Red ribbon
Directions
I started out by pouring a lot of red paint inside the clear ornament and swirled it around. Then, I just turned it upside down and let the extra red paint drip out overnight. Then, I replaced the top of the ornament and go to to work making a Falcons logo with my handy Silhouette... (focus on the red and black paint swirled here).

I started with a design that looked like this - the red lines are the cuts - and then the black shaded area is the vinyl that I kept (so I weeded the inside and the outside of the logo and only had the area shaded in black applied to the ornament).

So I outlined around the vinyl with my black paint pen and then filled in the inner parts of the vinyl with red glitter paint pen. And then finally, I peeled off the vinyl and used silver paint pen to color in where the vinyl was and then outlined everything with the black paint pen.

Ta da! I love this ornament with its imperfections, but still clearly identifiable team spirit!
