Christmas Project #6: Simple Crackled Glass Ornament

I love to give handmade gifts, but the hustle and bustle of the holiday season doesn’t always allow time for that, so one of my goals this holiday season is to make an ornament a night in an hour or less. It’s a nice way to de-stress at the end of the day.

This ornament that takes less than an hour to make (not counting dry time).
Materials used:
  • Ranger Memory Frames (2x2)
  • Ranger Memory Frames Glass (2x2)
  • Ranger Crackle Accents
  • October Afternoon Patterned Paper
  • Bazzill Pink Tulle
  • Offray Cream Flower
  • Deja Views Black Holiday Rub-on

  1. Cut two pieces of paper to 1-15/16 x1-15/16.
  2. Place the papers back to back in between two pieces of memory glass.
  3. Add Holiday rub-on to the glass in the lower left corner.
  4. Slide the memory glass sandwich (glass + paper) into the Memory Frames.
  5. Flood top of glass with Crackle Accents. Allow to dry overnight or about 10 hours before flipping over and doing the same on the reverse.
  6. Once crackle accents is dry, glue flower in upper right corner.
  7. Cut Bazzill Tulle approximately 10” long (or a little longer if you want to make it easier to work with) and double the layer so it’s 5” long.
  8. Tie the tulle around the memory glass hanger leaving the ends sticking out and not pulling the loops all the way through. Cut the loops to make more “ends” and trim to desired length.
  9. Admire and enjoy your new ornament!
