DIY Glass Ornament Craft

While at the craft store last week, I found some clear glass ornaments for my tree. I have been seeing some cute clear ornaments filled with some fun things.  So guess what? I tried them!

I bought a book of scrap paper filled with holiday designs.

 I also bought a stamp that cut out tiny Christmas trees!  Aren't they adorable?

I really liked the idea on filling them with scrap paper.  All you do is cut out strips of paper and roll them up in your hand.  It is that easy! 

Here are some that are already finished.  I also took some twine and added to the glass globe.

 Above is the one with the Christmas tree cutouts!  I think they are so cute but a little hard to insert into the top of ornament.  I guess I should have bought the larger size glass globe but I liked this one much better!  Oh and don't forget to add a pretty ribbon to the top of ornament to place on your tree......I used a mixture of twine and red satin ribbons.

Well that is my little craft for glass ornaments that I wanted to share with you.  Now I better get busy in making some more before I get my tree up hopefully this weekend.

Did you make any homemade ornaments for your tree this year?


  1. Great ideas. I think the twine is my fave. I would also add some sand to a few... Love the coastal look:)

  2. I love this idea! I wanted something my girls could do to make "home made" ornaments that didn't involve glue and glitter, and this is perfect. Pretty and classy, but still something all their own. Totally doing this this weekend.

  3. Super cute and simple - my favorites!

  4. Kelly,
    These are just adorable. I love them. I made one of these last year and took a my nieces wedding invite and cut into strips and put in the ornament so they would have that for their first Christmas. These are so fun. I love yours. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That looks like fun!.........and not too complicated for this craft-challenged blogger!

  6. I love that this is so festive and easy! The Christmas tree cutouts are darling!

  7. No but I wanted to make some just didn't get to it. Love yours with the little Christmas trees!

  8. Love these ornaments - so creative and pretty and I just love the little paper punched trees! Just wanted to let you know I featured it in my roundup of glass ornament crafts here. Feel free to check it out if you want and hope you like it! : )
