DIY Abstract Alcohol Ink Ornaments

5 Materials
30 Minutes

I don't know about you, but there are a few crafting materials that I just love working with. But that sometimes gets me in a crafting rut, and I get out of the habit of trying new things. Today I'm sharing a project I worked with alcohol ink for the first time to complete. Have you ever worked with it?? I didn't know much about it...nothing like diving in head first.

I started off with a solid-colored glass

The alcohol ink I used came in a little bottle with a dropper. I used black and gold but mostly focused on the black because I loved the chic combo of black and white. Plus the black was super deep and opaque. I liked that. I just started by dropping it on. The great thing with an abstract approach is that there is very little you can do s

For some of the ornaments, I set them upside down and let the alcohol ink drip down onto a plate.

For others, I just squiggled the tip around making spiral shapes and hung those to dry.

What do you think?? I love the way they turned out. The black and white ones are my favorites. Very bold. I did a black, white, gold, silver, and natural wood themed Christmas tree this year, so they fit great. Here are just a few of them.
