12 Simple Tutorials that Use Glass Ornaments via Clean Mama

I love making and crafting and glittering and gluing, but most of the time there just isn’t time for all the pretty things I’d love to create. And, if I’m going to make and craft I like to include my little ones in on the fun too. If you need a quick and cute craft that involves the whole family AND can be gifted as well, look no further than the glass ornament. Grab an idea or two and a box of clear glass (or plastic) ornaments and craft away. I like to choose one new one to make each year with my kids to remember the year – they also make great gifts! I’ve created a little round-up of my favorite ideas from around the web. Have no fear, these are do-able and simple – no need to complicate things 2 weeks from Christmas!
