JOY Glass Ornament by Designer Jennifer Priest
We just had a Hobby Lobby open up, about 20 minutes from my house (we’re expecting one in town next year) and my first purchase was a set of gorgeous shallow glass ornaments, ready to decorate.
Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
EC Star 25 Shape Studio and Bubble Caps
EC Vintage Settings in Cabana
Clearsnap EmbossGloss, Glitter, Design Adhesives, and Embossing Powder
Hobby Lobby Glass Ornament
Alphabet Stickers by K&Co.
Patterned Paper, Satin Ribbon, S-shaped clip – source unknown
Here’s how to make it:
Apply Clearsnap’s Design Adhesives to the back of the ornament and coat the design in glitter. Add “JOY” in sticker letters across the front of the ornament but omit the “O”.
Lightly apply EmbossGloss by Clearsnap to the edges of a Cabana Vintage Setting and sprinkle it with gold embossing powder; heat set to give it a gilded look.
Create a star for the center with the Epiphany Crafts Star 25 Shape Studio and Matching Bubble Caps using some gorgeous foil stamped paper. The epoxies are easy to apply to papers with a variety of finishes, like foil stamped paper.
Ink the Star 25 with ColorBox Fluid Chalk ink to disguise the stark white edge of the punched paper–the ink stays on the paper but rubs right off the top of the epoxy when finished.
Top it all off with a bow on the top. Unroll the spiral of a copper “S”-shaped paper clip to make an ornament hanger.
Designer Note: this was an ornament I did for an exchange with a fellow Spark Sister, from Spark the Event this past October. We are all trying to keep in touch and one of the ladies organized a Secret Sister ornament exchange–we’re all over the country and everyone has such different styles. It has been an exciting process!
