Clear Glass Christmas Ornament
Santa Ornament

Santa: What you will Need:

Santa: What to do:

Take several pieces of red ribbon and place them into the clear glass ball.  Place as many strips as you like. Take a piece of black ribbon and glue it to the circumference of the ball like a belt.  Paint a square “buckle” around a portion of the black ribbon and you have a clear ball made into a ho, ho, ho Santa’s belly perfect for any tree.

Snowflake Ornament

Snowflakes: What you will Need:

Snowflakes: What to do:

Take an old book or some pieces of sheet music and a snowflake punch and punch out as many snow flakes as you like and place them into your clear glass ball.  Once you have filled the ornament with the number of snowflakes that looks good to you put the top on and embellish with a ribbon if you like or keep plain as I did.

Glitter Ornament

Glitter: What you will Need:

Glitter: What to do:

Choose three different colors of glitter.  I chose red, green and gold.  You could choose blue, silver and white if you prefer a different color scheme.  There are numerous combinations of colors that would work.  I used a small funnel to make sure that my layers were distinct.  Once you have finished the layers you have finished the ornament.

Chalkboard Paint Ornament

Chalkboard Paint: What you will Need:

Chalkboard Paint: What to do:

Paint the entire glass ball with the chalkboard paint.  You may have to use two coats for as smooth finish. Once the paint has dried, write a holiday message using any color of chalk you like and you are finished. Embellish with ribbon if you like.

Twine and Ribbon Ornament

Twine and Ribbon: What you will Need:

Twine and Ribbon: What to do:

Cut a fairly long length of the twine and place into the ball. It will naturally fall into a circle as you push the twine into the ball. Once you have as much twine as you like cut the twine and place the top back onto the ball.  Embellish this ornament with Christmas ribbon for a nice country feel.

Faux Mercury Glass Ornament

Faux Mercury Glass: What you will Need:

Faux Mercury Glass: What to do:

Use the painter’s tape to punch out the snowflake shapes.  This is not difficult but a little annoying.  Place the painter’s tape snowflake’s on the glass ball making sure the edges are firmly on the ball.  Spray the entire ornament with the Looking Glass Paint.  Once the paint is dry, peel off the tape and you have clear glass snowflakes on a background of faux mercury glass.
