Here is how to make a Christmas ornament for your tree that looks vintage. It’s a fun Christmas craft that you can do with your kids.

1. clean the glass ornament

Be sure the glass ornament is free of fingerprints, dust, etc by wiping it with rubbing alcohol.

2. paint the glass ornament

Spray paint the glass ornament with 2-3 light coats of spray paint. Be sure to let it dry in between coats.

3. Add paint To rim

Use the tip writer app to paint silver metallic paint around the rim of the glass ornament. This takes a little while to dry, so I let it dry overnight to be safe.

4. paint embellishments

Use the tip writer to paint pink and blue embellishments on the glass ornament. You can paint flowers, snowflakes or just polka dots.

5. add poly-fil.

Fill the bottom of the glass ornament with poly-fil. Add a little hot glue to secure it. This surebonder hot glue gun is my favorite. It is cordless and has its own stand. It makes it so much easier to craft!

6. add the bottle brush trees

Hot glue 2-3 bottle brush trees to the inside of the glass ornament. You can also add little figurines if you like. Here I show it with lights behind it and love how it looks.

Think about how many cool color combinations you could make. I’d love to make an aqua one with pink trim. What color combination would you like to see?
