Show us your Homemade Ornaments

I have a very eclectic Christmas tree – just the way I like it. It's full of the simple ornaments we had when we were first married, "baby's first Christmas" for our now-adult children, beautiful ones given to us as gifts, the annual snowman ornament for Caitlin and Santa ornament for Ben, the heirlooms from our parents, and the best ornaments, the homemade ones. Here's my contribution to this year's tree.


I'm afraid the picture doesn't do justice to all the glittery goodness. I think it took me all of about 15 minutes to make this out of a plain glass ornament. Denise Rolak's fantastic video made the task incredibly easy. Okay, it was little messy for me because I didn't have a funnel, but I love the results. You can find Denise's video here.  

Here's a whole gallery of ideas for embellishing glass ornaments at Splitcoast Stampers: Glass Ornaments.

If you make or have made some ornaments this year, be sure to leave us a comment and a link so we can see your creations – I love show and tell!
