    I painted some clear glass ornies with a paint pen and within the hour it had dried but went kinda streaky and when I touched it, it completely rubbed off. What kind of paint should I be using and should I seal it…I would prefer to use a pen to paint and brush.

      Hi Kate…I haven’t actually tried any paint pens YET…so far I’ve only tried the acrylic paints with a brush…but let me do a little experimenting and get back to you.. (By the way, what kind of paint pen did you use? Was it acrylic paint?)

    Hi there!! You are sooooo talented! And I am so envious of your work space!!! I wish I could have that..mine still looks a lot worst than your old space ….I mean, at least with the old space you still can work. Mine you can’t even find what’s around!!

    Anyways, I was interested in a few things if you could help me out. I’d like to make some purchases. Do you sell the items such as the “moonlight ornament” along with the tutorial? I need the materials you used more than the tutorial.
    I am willing to pay for it but I want to make it myself for my husband as his late grandmother used to make ornaments when he was a child – so it would mean more if I made it than if I just bought it from you. If you do sell the materials these are the ones I am interested in….
    -moonlight ornament
    -Christmas carol

    there are two more but I don’t see them on your site right now. luckily I saved the picture when I was looking at it so if you’d email me, I’d be able to send you the pictures.
    I look forward to hearing from you!
    *keeping my fingers crossed!*

    Thanks so much for your time!

      Leah, I replied to your email about the Moonlight and the other two ornaments you sent the photos of…just let me know, and thank you!!

    Dear ornamentgirl,

    Could you please tell me what “DIY” means. I am new to this abbreviation.
    Thanks very much. Your work is dazzling and your web page is very easy to use and friendly. I know I will visit you often.


    • ornamentgirl November 3, 2012, 2:29 am

      Hi Judith!

      DIY means “do it yourself.”

      Thanks for the compliment…I really appreciate it!

  • lynda November 11, 2012, 3:55 am

    What do you use to make glitter ornaments for plastic, not glass, balls?
    Do I use the same “adhesive”? I really appreciate your advice.

    Love your ornaments!! I have a very large family and make an ornament for them every year instead of buying gifts. I usually make 40 or 50 so I have some to give friends.All during the year they keep asking me,”what is the ornament for this year?” I’ve made “stinky cheese men” ,quilted birds, quilted cat/fish (head of a cat and tail of a fish), At family gatherings we always have a catfish fry dinner. I will definately use some of your ideas for next year. Thanks, Kitty

  • Ellen Gause November 24, 2013, 12:25 am

    Hello … was wondering if you would sell just the KITS (supplies only) without the tutorials? I’ve been making ornaments for seven years so I know the process. But I LOVE the fabrics in some of your kits. I live in a small town and only have one place to buy fabrics and the choices are very limited. Your work is amazing! Thanks

    • ornamentgirl December 1, 2013, 8:53 pm

      Ellen, I’d be glad to work something out with you. Would you send me an email to staciann (at) theornamentgirl.com, and let me know which kits you’re interested in? Thanks so much! :)

    Due to your inspiration, for the third year in a row I have made ornaments that are used to make money for my local animal shelter. They are always a big hit and bring in alot of money for the animals. Thanks for inspiring me and helping the animals.

    • ornamentgirl December 1, 2013, 8:51 pm

      Cookie! You just made my Christmas; that is SO wonderful!

  • Christy December 11, 2014, 9:30 pm

    These are awesome ideas! Thank you so much for posting these, and I look forward to ordering the pattern for the quilted ornaments too. I may get so caught up that I order today. Thanks again, you are very talented and I appreciate you sharing
