Christmas time is upon us, and this is one girl who is thrilled about it.
It seemed to creep up quick this year, didn’t it? (I guess it always does!) If you’re in need of any quick and easy gift ideas, or if you just want to make yourself some more decorations for the tree (like me!), I’ve got 3 clear glass ornament ideas that’ll take you all of 10 minutes to throw together.
Okay, the last one might take you 15…not including paint drying time… but it’s still super easy. :)
Mistletoe and Snow
This one is my favorite. It’s so simple and elegant. All I did was snip a tiny sprig from a bunch of mistletoe that I bought at Michaels a couple of years ago:
And I added it, along with a little bit of fake snow, inside of my glass bulb. Isn’t it pretty?
Frosty Jingle Bells
This one is even easier. I added some clear glass seed beads to the bottom of the bulb, and then topped them with a mix of blue and white jingle bells. (I used glittery and shiny bells to make it more interesting!)
First, I painted the inside of a clear glass ornament with Martha Stewart Acrylic Craft Paint (color: Mother of Pearl, #32127).
And then, I created a snowflake, using self-stick flat-backed pearls (from the scrapbooking section of Michaels). I used a flat-backed turquoise crystal rhinestone in the center.
This one took the longest, but not too much longer. And just think of all the colors you could use! I’m thinking a midnight blue, with silver crystal rhinestones? Oooo….Ahhhh….
What do you think? And, have you made any ornaments using clear glass bulbs? I’d love to hear your ideas.
(And by the way…if none of these tickle your fancy, I’ve got a big list of 25 more ways you can decorate clear glass ornaments, right HERE.)1
