Deck the Halls with Glittery Galaxy Inspired Homemade Ornaments

Because I’ve never met a clear glass ornament I didn’t want to bedazzle, I skipped to the craft store recently and bought loads of glitter. Making homemade ornaments is a passion of mine, and this year I was feeling a little inspired by the galaxy craze and decided to make glittery galaxy inspired DIY ornaments! They’re really simple to make and the swirls of glitter turned out so pretty. These are easy enough for even younger kiddos to help with, too, which makes them even more fun in my book!

10 Gorgeous Homemade Ornaments You Can Make with Simple Glass Ornaments

There’s one week until Christmas and I am so excited! Yes, if you haven’t already caught on, I am basically an overgrown five year old child when it comes to all things Christmas. I am still tinkering on a few crafty Christmas things this week and thought you might be, too, so I have rounded up ten seriously gorgeous homemade ornaments! The best part is that all of these are made with inexpensive glass ornaments which this time of year you can scoop up for just a few bucks a piece at any craft store. Most of these are kid-friendly, too, so if you want to get the kids around the table to craft some pretty ornaments for the tree or to give as teacher’s gifts or to the grandparents, here are some truly beautiful ones to try that no one would ever guess were homemade.

Inspired by the myriad of melted crayon crafts my favorite elementary school little people have been loving this year, but with a decidedly elegant touch, I bring you these stunning melted crayon ornaments!

Now that is my kind of holiday craft!
