On the Ball

I know, I know. I said no Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I’m trying to be more prepared this year, remember?

That’s why when I saw that Consumer Crafts had their clear glass ornaments on sale 10-for-$2.67 I just had to by some. As in 100. It was only $26.70. I couldn’t not buy them.

I am absolutely head over heels for these ombre ornaments from Ambrosia Girl. Maybe it’s that I love all things ombre, maybe it’s that they’re gorgeous. If I can find the paint, I’m making them.

Also, these confetti balls are just adorable! I have a hole punch at the office full of white dots that would make some adorable ornaments.

And then there’s these henna-inspired puff paint ornaments. I don’t know if I could do such intricate work without smudging it everywhere, but they’re beautiful to look at none the less (and I may give them a go anyway)!

I might not be able to do the henna above, but I could definitely do the simple hand-painted ornaments below. I’m really loving the peacock feather!

This evergreen ornament would be really easy to make, too. Just pop off the top, add a sprig, and Viola! Instant Christmas.

Last but not least is this super simple music ornament. It’s so easy and absoultely gorgeous. You could do it with wedding vows, letters to Santa, or what I may try, Bible verses about Christmas. Loud and Clear Music Ornament


Oh, and just so you have an update on the rest of my pre-Christmastime preparations, I made my first felt strawberry last night for my nieces’ Christmas gifts. It’s too adorable for words. Only 11 more to go, then I think I’m going to make carrots. Or maybe turkey legs. I can’t decide.

    Nice! This was totally me last year! I got a bunch of clear glass ornaments to make glitter ones! You pour a little non-aerosol hairspray into an ornament, swirl to coat the inside, and dump the excess. The do the same with glitter! They look so good and since the glitter is in the inside it doesn’t get everywhere. Can’t wait to see what you do!

    You better get crafting! I used clear ones to do ornaments from our wedding program and invitation the year we got married. I love the sprig idea and letter to santa from kids.

    I love those clear ornaments. I got some larger ones last year and put photographs in there and wrote the year on them on the outside with paint pens. They turned out really cute. I also put Henry handprints on one for each grandparent.
