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:

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!

  1. Your holiday bulbs are adorable and I’m wondering where you bought them? I have been looking for some oblong/teardrop shaped bulbs online and am not having much luck.
