Filled with a little Christmas!
First of all, let me apologize about last week’s Takeaway Tuesday. To be honest, I completely forgot about posting. That day was a shopping day with my daughter, Tara. Sorry I forgot about ya’ll! We had a nice time out together though. She’s 18 and still at home and taking college classes, but I do try to spend time with her when I can. I know she won’t stay home forever.
Today I’m sharing one of the easiest Christmas ornaments I know how to make—filled clear ornaments. I purchased my clear ornaments from Hobby Lobby but you can get them in almost any craft store.
Mine in the photo is filled with Epson salts, a little plastic Boxwood greenery, and berries. You can fill them with almost anything.
Fill Ideas for Clear Ornaments:
- Ribbon or string (to embellish and add a hanger with)
- Epson Salt
- Paint (you squeeze a little in and roll them around)
- Mini pinecones
- Rolled paper strips
- Miniature figurines such as animals
- Miniature Christmas trees
- Lace scraps
- Jingle bells
- Stickers (for the outside)
- Mini letter blocks
- Candy such as M&Ms
- Bath Salts
- Hot cocoa mix and marshmallows
- Check the dollhouse section for miniature items
- Use your imagination and creativity….the list could go on and on!
Tip: If you use Epson Salt and put items on top of it, you will need to slide your ornament very slowly upright (if you use the ones like from Hobby Lobby that open vertically) so that your items don’t get buried beneath the salts.
Here are a few filled ornaments from online so you can get some more ideas:
- Snow Globe Ornament (Cook, Love Craft)
- Clear Cocoa Ornament (Sprinkle Some Fun)
- Nature Ornament (The Thrifty Crafter)
- Seashell and Sand Ornament (The Ornament Girl)
- Yarn and Rope Ornaments (Family Chic)
Thanks for stopping in. Feel free to comment. I love hearing from you.
Have a creative day,
