Holiday DIY Project: Glass Ornaments

With Christmas quickly approaching, you might want to consider making some fun DIY ornaments! Create something new with glass ornaments, as their blank canvas encourages creativity and uniqueness in children and adults alike.

Here are some DIY glass ornament ideas:

Glitter Dust

Sparkly and eye-catching, this ornament is festive and ready for a party! Not only is it pretty, but also is one of the simplest crafts to make. All you need is an empty glass ball ornament, a matching ribbon to attach and your choice of glitter/confetti dust.

Marshmallow Snowman  

The kids will love this craft, as it’s cute for the winter weather, and involves marshmallows of course! Fill an empty glass ball ornament with miniature marshmallows, and complete the snowman’s face by drawing on a carrot nose. This ornament will have you wishing for some snow on Christmas morning!

Nature Bliss

For a more mature design, this greenery filled ornament will add an elegant touch to your Christmas tree. Filling it with artificial moss, a small pinecone and an evergreen leaf will leave your home feeling cozy.

The “Grinch”

Who doesn’t love classic Christmas movies over the holidays? There are many animated characters that will work for this craft, but the Grinch is one of the best. You can’t go wrong with green glittery face and a head full of feathers!

Back to the Beach

For many people, a beach vacation is a place of relaxation and renewal. Memories are created, traditions continue and the warm weather doesn’t disappoint! If you’re constantly wishing for more beach time, this ornament is for you. If you plan ahead, bring back a small portion of sand back home with you from your favorite beach. Fill the glass ball and add a few seashells. Your “life is better at the beach” ornament will bring your home-away-from-home a little bit closer.
