Personalized Glass Ornaments

Personalized Glass Ornament DetailThe new variety and colors of paint pens make personalized ornaments quick and fun to do. Use a variety of colors for clear bulbs, or just one metallic pen for brightly colored bulbs for a stunning gift or addition to your own tree. Personalized ornaments also make excellent ideas for labeling gifts in lieu of gift tags. A full set of family ornaments make for a great gift for a parent or grandparent, or to keep for your own tree.

Personalized Glass Ornament DetailCover your work surface with plenty of newspapers. Set out all your supplies. Decide which color pens you want to use with which ornaments and think about a rough design for the ornament. If desired, draw it out on paper first. Place each ornament in the top of a cup to provide a stable surface to work on. Personalized Glass Ornament DetailDecorate the ornament with your name and date, or that of the recipient. Add drawings of your family, yourself, Christmas trees, stars, snowflakes, and other Christmas themed items, making sure to let the paint dry to the touch before turning it in the cup. Once the ornament is fully decorated and the paint has dried, attach a big bow to the top of each ornament for that last special touch. Most paint pens are very toxic, and constant supervision should be used when working with younger children.
