The 2010 was a lot of fun to make. And they were pretty quick too.
- Permanent markers (I used my Bic markers)
- Clear glass ornaments
- Overhead transparency sheets
- StazOn Ink pad
- Holiday Stamp
- Clear drying glue
- Fake snow
Here’s how I made them:
- Cut a circle just smaller than your ornament from the transparency sheet. Leave a tab on the top of the circle. Think of cutting out a silhouette of an ornament. I used my coluzzle to cut the circle shape, left a space uncut and cut the tab with scissors.
- Stamp your image on the center of the circle. Be careful to not smudge your image. I left my image for several hours so make sure it was completely dry.
- Color your image with your markers. Again I left the image to dry completely for several hours. Since the only time I have to craft is the time between the kids and my bedtime short bursts of work with long dry times are perfect!
- I used glitter to fill in the image background. Yep, another overnight dry time.
- I took the cap of one of the clear ornaments and used a funnel to pour in 1 – 2 tablespoons of fake snowflakes.
- Then once I had the images just how I wanted them and they were all dry, I rolled it up into a tube and slid it into the ornament with the tab sitting in the opening. Once they were into ornament the popped right open.
So although there was a lot of drying time, I probably spent 1 hour on task to make a set of four ornaments.
I had really wanted to do a nativity stamp, but I couldn’t find one that would fit inside the ornaments. That was probably the biggest challenge for this project was finding an image that I liked that would fit inside the ornament. I was pretty happy with how the Christmas dog and kitty turned out.
