What to do with boxes and boxes of shiny glass ornaments
Decoupage sheet music with eyelash yarn
Epsom Salts for some no melt Snowballs
Had to make a wreath after seeing them all over the web. I added mica for a snowy effect.
After removing the paint from the outside and inside, I added my sons and wifes names with their date of marriage for their First Married Christmas Ornament. Ribbon is from their wedding this past June.

What to do with boxes and boxes of shiny glass ornaments


I couldn't pass up boxes marked 10 cents of glass ornaments at a garage sale. But 8 boxes? Here are just a few of the transformations I've done.

I'm kind of impatient so i helped it by wiping the outside. The inside was another story. Almost all of it soaked off, but there were a ferw areas where it stayed. I put in some rice with a bit of water and shook it. That removed all but 2 small spots. I used a small bebdable brush for those. The glass felt so thin, thought I'd break them, but all turned out ok.

CleverJunk writes: I love all these ideas. How did you remove the paint? I purchased some clear glass ornaments from Michael's and transformed them...a happy accident. I'll have to take a picture and post it...it's a funny story. I'm really impressed with the fact that you removed the paint!...and I like the sentimental idea. Posted: 6:49 pm on December 12th
