Late November, Rowan came to me with this long list of christmas ornaments and decorations she’d like to make. I will admit that I took one look at that list and silently cursed in my mind. That list was LONG. Well we’ve finally gotten around to ONE of those ideas – decorating glass ornaments.
We hit our local big box store to search for glass ornaments to decorate but could only finds small ones – So we made do.
Sunday we dug out our craft supplies, paint, glue, buttons, books – you name it.
Jaia and Rowan simply wanted to paint theirs –
I was a little more creative 🙂 When Jaia and I were at the Harry Potter night – one of the vendors had glass ornaments in which she’d cut up strips of a HP book – I personally thought – what a great idea! and I tried to recreate it 🙂 I couldn’t find our beat up version of HP so I settled for another book instead –
I ripped out 2 pages and one page I tore into small pieces and another I cut into thin strips –
The thin strips I slipped into the ornament –
The torn page I modpodged onto the ornament –
But my favorite ornament is the ornament I decorated with buttons!
I used E6000 glue –
And covered the glass ornament –
I’m thinking salt dough ornaments might be next on the list!
Hope everyone is healthy – we are all just recovering from a nasty, fast hitting cold! But I did get to use my Elderflower tincture –
