Gotta Catch ‘Em All, Pokémon! Anyone with a little one into Pokémon knows that catch-phrase like the back of their hand. My seven-year-old son is officially obsessed with Pokémon so making these DIY Pokémon Ornaments for him just seemed so fitting. Check out my easy instruction below
I don’t usually make ornaments but my son spotted these online for a hefty price and my immediate thought was, “I can make that”! I wasn’t sure he’d actually say yes, OK Mom go ahead and make me those, but of course, he did. So I got right on it and with very few supplies needed they were actually quite easy to make. If you’re into DIYs and crafts, you may already have most of this stuff onhand. If not, a quick trip to Michaels or Walmart will get you everything you need. Now, if you’re not into crafts and DIY projects, you can purchase these adorable Pokémon ornaments online here.

- Remove tops from ornaments.
- Pour a generous amount of paint into the ornament and swirl around to cover the inside entirely. When fully covered, place into an egg carton or cup to drain the excess paint. Continue this with all of the ornaments. I did only 1 coat on this process.
- When fully dry, draw Pokémon faces onto the ornaments. I used acrylic paint markers from Amazon. Some colors may need additional coats. Wait until the first coat is fully dry to go over them again to avoid clumping. If you make mistakes this paint can be wiped off easily when still wet. Let them fully dry before sealing.
- Once they are fully dry, it’s time to seal the ornaments.
- I used clothes pins to prop ornaments up and spray them with a clear gloss. Clip the cloths pin to something ie. A bowl, box, or cups – anything stable. Then, carefully place the ornament’s hole over the clothespin and spray a few coats to seal the paint on the outside of the ornament.
- Once fully dry and satisfied with the look, put the tops back on the ornaments and tie a ribbon.
