Ornaments Ready Online!

Christmas is coming - Are you ready? Here is a fun craft idea that you can do with a group or the family. 

Using clear bulbs (purchased at a craft store - Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart, etc.), color the inside and customize them on the outside. 

This sample has glitter inside (Learn how easy it is to glitter the inside) and white vinyl outside (see other designs here). 

Check out our website for vinyl and more ideas.

More designs will be added often but if there is something that you would like and you don't see it available, just send us an email and we'll see what we can do for you.

-  I love the look of the glitter on the inside.  That part will be so easy for children to do and so much fun!  
-  There is a little skill necessary for applying the vinyl but children can do it too.  You may need to use a craft knife to adjust some of the letters or parts of the design. 
-  The vinyl does not adhere to some substances on the outside so do a test before you plan on a whole project.  I used a glitter spray on the outside and the vinyl would not attach to that substance.  It did work okay sprayed over the vinyl then I removed the vinyl for a kind of reverse etching.
-  Some paints (most that I have found) do not necessarily leave a smooth inside color.  I see blobs and runs and have tried several brands and techniques.  My favorite is the glitter as it seems the most user friendly. See details on how to make these on our website under Vinyl Projects.

Please let us know if you have questions.  We hope you will try this project and don't forget to get your vinyl at!
