Steps To Make A Pikachu Pokémon Ornaments

Step 1: Carefully remove the cap on the ornament and pour yellow paint inside.  Swirl around until completely coated.  If you need to shake the ornament to get more coverage, make sure that you cover the hole with your thumb as you shake.

The first step to make a Pikachu ornament is to swirl the yellow paint inside of the ball. |

Step 2: Cut pointy Pikachu ears out of the felt and paint the tips with the black paint.

The second step to make a Pikachu ornament is to cut the ears out of the fabric and paint the tips black. |

Step 3: Draw Pikachu’s face on with the paint marker to give him personality and let it dry. Don’t forget his pink electric cheeks!

The third step to make a Pikachu ornament is to draw the face. Use how we drew the face as a guide, as the mouth is very important and uses a W shape with a U underneath. |

Step 4: Glue the ears to the glass ball and let them dry.

The final and fourth step to make a Pikachu ornament is to super glue the ears to the top of the ball. |


Steps To Make A Pokéball Ornament

Step 1: Carefully remove the ornament cap and pour some white paint in the clear glass ball ornament.  Slowly turn the ornament around until the white paint only covers the bottom half of the glass ball and let it dry.

The first step to make a Pokeball ornament is to swirl the white paint inside, but only coverin half of the ball. |

Step 2: Paint the outside of the glass ball ornament with red paint from the half way mark that you can see from the white paint inside.

The second step to make a Pokeball ornament is to paint the outside of the top half of the ball red. |

Step 3: Using the black paint marker, draw the circle on the front and black stripe around the middle, all the way around the circumference of the glass ball.  Fill in the circles with silver glitter paint.  Let it dry.

The third and final step to make a Pokeball ornament is to use the black paint market to draw a line across the hemisphere of the ball and the circle on the front. Use silver glitter paint to add a shiny detail to the circle on the front. |

That’s it!  You now have Pokémon ornaments that you created yourself.  A brightly colored yellow Pikachu ornament and red and white Pokéball ornament.
