how to make Sharpie ornaments

We got a request by Sharpie to create 4 Christmas ornaments featuring their metallic Sharpies that they could use for advertising on Amazon. Our response...heck yes!

Yes, we do make money from talking about and using certain products. We still like them. Find our full disclosure here.

We are giant fans of using Sharpies on white porcelain Christmas ornaments for all kinds of designs, patterns, and fun. We did a set of 4 last year (which Sharpie had seen and why they asked us, specifically) with Sharpies that were super fun and easy and knew that another set could be just as great! Boy, were we wrong. We think this set of 4 forest animal ornaments is BETTER than last year's set. And maybe faster. Maybe easier. Definitely more adorable! Really...you can't go wrong with a cute fox, can you!

So, grab yourself a pack of metallic Sharpies and 4 white ball Christmas ornaments and whip up a set of these adorable ornaments! Keep them for yourselves or gift them to another. Either way, they are a winner winner, chicken dinner!

We've created a video for each of the ornaments that is easy to follow. The Fox and Mouse are in one video, the Bear and Owl in the other. Or, if you choose...use the picture tutorial (it's easy to follow!) to create them. If you do, make a set be sure to pop over to our FACEBOOK PAGE to share them with us...we love to see what you all create!
