This year I decided to get a little crafty and make my own ornaments. They make the perfect personalized gifts!

I used these ornaments. Something bothers me about the clear glass ones you find at craft stores. Oh, and I somehow always break those! These are beautiful, and sturdy.

I painted the ornament with basic acrylic paint. After that dried, I applied glitter on top with a glue pen.

The glitter completes it!

Easy, right? Check out this ‘bubbly’ one I made yesterday.

I’ll be making a few more of these in the next week… so make sure you follow along here to see what I come up with!

    I love it. paint and glitter is a great combo.

    I know what you mean about the craft store glass ornaments. Somehow I have kept some for years now. If I ever find any sturdier clear glass ones I’ll let you know. Some craft stores also have ceramic, wood, plaster, plastic, etc. I’m thinking of trying with different materials.
