Custom Christmas Ornaments

Last holiday season I spent
a number of hours filling
custom Christmas ornament orders.
And although it is somewhat
time consuming...
it was A LOT of fun!

I really enjoyed scrolling
through my fonts to get just the
right one for each name or word.
And creating each unique ornament
was only complete when the lettering,
tulle and ribbon color was decided.

I wish now that I would have taken more pictures.
Because right now...I can't find any.

Here's an idea of what I use:

1. 4" Glass Bulb
2. Tulle
3. Vinyl design, name or word
(will need vinyl cutter & supplies-or paint-or stickers)
4. Decorative ribbon cut 7-9" long

Here's what to do:
Clean the bulb with
Windex, rub on design/name or word.
In this case I used words
relating to the spirit
of Christmas.
Peel away application tape.
Remove silver hook holder and
 fill the bulb with the tulle
color of your choice.
Put top back on.
Place the ribbon through the hook
holder and tie.

I made 16 of these for a recent show.
Unfortunately, I didn't sell any.
 BUT the up side to that is that
I now have them for my
space at Marketplace 3301.
I'm excited to see how well they do
and am hoping for some custom
name and color orders!

I made these ornaments for our tree. I embellished them
with our names and the year. But instead
of filling them with tulle, I used dark brown and light brown
paper shred with nut brown (pumpkin orange)
vinyl. My tree is bronze and orange and they turned out amazing!

(this is the back side...the front has my boys' names)

If you'd like to make your own but need the vinyl~
contact me:

with custom names, words or decals!
