Scrappy Ornaments

Here is a fun, easy project as you prepare for the Holidays!  And if you don't mind a few sticky fingers, even fun for the kids! 


You will need clear, plastic ornaments.  They come is a variety of sizes, but mine are 3" ornaments.  You will be able to find these at your local craft supply store and are usually sold in a carton of 6.


You will also need a jar of Modge Podge and a small paint brush.


Finally, gather your scraps of fabrics and cut them into very small pieces.  The pieces do not need to be the same size, in fact, it is better to have a variety of sizes.  But the scraps do need to be small....generally an inch or less.

   
I usually start at the top of the ornament and lay a piece of fabric on the ornament, hold it with one hand and simply paint the piece of fabric with Modge Podge.  You don't need much, just enough to stick the fabric to the ornament.  Then continue with another scrap and slightly over lap the last piece of fabric and paint with Modge Podge.  I like to go all around the top first so that I can hold onto the hanger as I work my way around the bulb. 


You will notice it looks cloudy as you are painting, but it will dry clear.  Once you have finished a bulb, you can place it upside down in the carton or string a ribbon through and hang to dry.  Once dry you may add more layers of Modge Podge if you would prefer.  I only did one coat.
So there you have it!  A fun ornament for your Christmas tree, as a gift {for teacher, maybe}, or gather several in a ribbon and use to decorate a package.


Have fun!
Mary

This looks great!
I've just put something similar on my blog with papier maché. I used wallpaper paste.

I found this post tonight on Pinterest and rushed into my craft room to try it! I didn't have any Christmas ornaments, but I did have a box full of old used up light bulbs. I tried them and oh wow...SO CUTE! I'll attach a wire to the top (with some cute beads strung onto it) for a hanger! Viola! Recycled light bulb art! Thanks so much for the wonderful post and instructions! I'll come back here often!

Cathy Tyler said...

I love this idea! I used smaller balls from a yard sale, tacky glue, and narrow strips of fabric from another project - worked great! Photos here: http://danspringscollection.wordpress.com/

Katie Farrell said...

I did a few of these. Turned out pretty good but I'm wondering if there is a way to make them even more shiny. Like some kind of laquer maybe?

Anonymous said...

That's "Mod Podge"! Not "Modge Podge."

Connie Torres said...

Can you use wrapping paper or printed napkins?

Nancy Reinke said...

What a perfect way to use all my little fabric scraps. Yay! Thank you. (Living in Oregon now, but I lived 14 years in Columbus. Love that town!)

Why not just fill the glass ornament with scraps of fabric; ie scraps from a quilt you made for a family member or friend. Give the ornament as an added gift.

Most of all its curries and the food here are made fresh with incredible variety of choice in the menu. What's more there are plenty of options here for vegans, with their food being well cooked with just the right seasoning and spices without overdoing the chili or the masala. With excellent service and pricing it is a must visit for any and every food lover. It has been recommended by both the Oxfordian Food blogger and also oxford's restaurant guide.
