Guess what? It’s time for another Craft Lightning! Today I am sharing how to make a Vintage Inspired Ornament in fifteen minutes. I wanted to make some more ornaments to match the vintage handkerchief ornaments I made the other day.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Clear glass or plastic ornaments
- Craft paint in the colors of your choice
- Lace ribbon for the trim
- Lace ribbon for the hanger
- Gold ribbon
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Wet paper towel
I started out with four oblong glass ornaments that I got on sale for 50% off…woo hoo! Remove the top and squirt a generous amount of craft paint into the bulb.
Place your thumb over the bulb and give it a vigorous shake. You may need to turn your bulb and shake to coat the entire inside.
Keep a wet paper towel handy to clean your fingers. Place the top back on. You can wait for your paint to dry. I am too impatient, however so I didn’t! Ha!
Next I cut a piece of lace ribbon. I hot glued the ribbon on with a thin strip at the back of the ornament.
I also wanted a little gold sparkle, so I added a gold glitter ribbon on top of the lace. I also added a thicker lace ribbon as the hanger on top. They turned out quite nice!
