Homemade Christmas Ornaments

This week we found some clear glass balls at Michaels Craft Store and were inspired to make our own ornaments. I decided to go with a white, blue and silver colour scheme and Jen decided to use green and gold colours.

Materials used:

  • glass balls in a variety of sizes
  • large glitter and hexagonal sequins
  • Epsom salts
  • sugar
  • metalic permanent marker
  • gold and white craft paint
  • ribbon

Clockwise from left to right: bird on a branch drawn with silver metalic marker and filled with sugar, white paint filled with blue hexagonal sequin, filled with glitter, dipped in glue and then Epsom salts.

For the others we used a combination of metalic markers and craft paint to create custom designs, for example our names.
