Glittered Christmas Glass Ornaments

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! How lovely are thy branches.

For as long as I can remember, at Christmas time my parents buy us a new Christmas ornament for the tree to represent the year ahead. By the time I moved into my first apartment, I had a tree full of ornaments that represented my entire childhood. Including the small wooden train ornament my great aunt and uncle gave me my first Christmas. 

As children I remember creating ornaments sleds from Popsicle sticks and craft glue. I am one of the few in my  generation of our family to have crocheted ornaments made by our great-great aunt Charlotte. She let me choose the delicately crafted stocking and ice skates decoration her last family reunion with us. 

As I began crafting these glittered glass ornaments, it was her that I had in mind. Every time I look at the ornaments she gave me, I remember her, and she is part of each Christmas as a result. Make these DIY ornaments for the people you will celebrate the holidays with this year, and give them something that will last long after the wrapping and tinsel have been packed away. 

Here's what you will need to create your own:

Little B LLC Products:

  • 3mm Thin Gold Stripe decorative tape
  • Holiday Angels mini sticker embellishments

Additional Supplies:

  • Glass ornaments
  • Floor wax/cleaner
  • Glitter

Directions:

  1. Remove the top of the glass ornament and pour a small amount of floor wax inside
  2. Swirl around to completely coat the ornament (Tip: Do not shake as it will create air bubbles) and pour out the excess
  3. Do the same thing with the glitter and reattach the top of the ornament
  4. Embellish the ornament with decorative tape and sticker embellishments as shown (Tip: Layer the decorative tape to completely cover the top of the ornament. Line up stripes to make it appear seamless)

Show us how creative  you can be and put your own spin on these crafted decorations. Whether they brighten your tree or sparkle as a gift topper, you are certain to excite everyone around with your creativity. 

Make it meaningful!
