Every year my neighborhood does an ornament exchange. The rules are simple… wrapped ornament with your name on the inside, NOT a tacky ornament, and each ornament can be stolen a maximum of 2 times. We play the traditional "white elephant" rules without the tackiness! But boy, some of my neighbors are vicious! It's always a good time and I look forward to it every year.
This year was no different than the years past… I always make my ornament. I tried glass etching many years ago and really had an idea that I wanted to try out. So I revisited glass etching!
The hardest part of this endeavor was finding glass ornaments with holes already in them. Sure, I looked online but they were pricey and I wanted A BUNCH. I called up my BFF and asked her about sources… she has done much stained glass and I knew she would know of some good glass sources. Turns out she cut me a bunch herself from her scraps and her husband drilled the holes for me! SO NICE!!! I so appreciate them doing that!
Here is the ornament I made for the exchange:
Have a great day!
