Make These Easy Painted Glass Globe Ornaments with the Kids (12 Days of Christmas Family Fun)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 8, 2011 @ 11:37 am In Christmas | 3 Comments

Creating Christmas tree ornaments can serve as a fun family activity. These easy painted glass globe ornaments would also make elegant and inexpensive gifts as well.

The kids and I painted these swirly glass globe ornaments last week as the start of our Christmas countdown. They were incredibly easy to paint — and so much fun! All my kids were totally into this activity, even the big ‘uns. Heck, I had a blast making them!

My mom told me about these years ago, but I never tried them. Then recently, Mandi’s post [4] reminded me to give them a try. They were so easy to do, that we made several sets, some to keep and some to giveaway as gifts.

I found the clear glass ornaments at Walmart for $5 for a pack of 8. But, if you want to plan for next year, stock up at the next post-Christmas sale.
