Glass Ornaments

Merry Christmas!  What? It’s nearly a week after Christmas?  {sigh}  We’ve been so busy with family fun that I’m not posting until a week after Christmas.  Oh well, pin this idea for next year!  🙂glass ornament cover - Page 001

Each year I make a dated glass ball ornament with my Preschool students.  You can usually get the plain glass ball ornaments at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby 50% off which makes them affordable. glass ornament 3 - Page 001

Each year I do something different.  One year we made glass balls with their handprint in a bright color like yellow, red or green.glass ornament 2 - Page 001

In my Pre-K class we made white handprints.  I turned their little fingers into cute little snowmen.glass ornament 5 - Page 001

Another fun option is to do a white handprint.  Then open the top of the ornament and pour in 2-4 acrylic paint colors.  You’ll need a lot of paint.  Swirl the paint around to make sure the whole ball is covered inside.

Turn the ornament over onto a cup to drain.glass ornament 6 - Page 001

Which one will you make {next year}?  I love them all!  They create great keepsakes for the families to keep for years to come.glass ornament cover - Page 001

Happy crafting and Merry Christmas!
