To make a beautiful Ocean Ornament of your own, you will need:
Paint-- white and shades of blue
Flat ornament-- glass or plastic. I bought mine at Michaels
Sand-- I brought some home from the beach, but any craft store should have sand.
Strong Glue (Optional)
First paint your horizon 1/3 of the way down on the ornament.
Paint a line below the horizon in a different shade of blue.
Continue painting lines in different shades of blue to create your ocean. Use your sponge to create the tide about 2/3 down from the top of the ornament.
Fill your ornament 1/3 full with sand.
Optional: You can put a small amount of strong glue to the cap of the ornament to permanantly seal it closed. This will avoid any sand spillage when you store it away for next year!
I have a Martha Stewart stencil that says "Merry Christmas" -- you could stencil or paint a holiday sentiment or maybe the name of the beach your sand is from.
