Very neat idea. They look so pretty. I have a couple boxes of different size acrylic clear round ball ornaments that I got on sale and never found a great way to use them. I did take a few and glued flat back rhinestones in bands around them but this is even better. Thanks for a great idea.

Is there photos or video on doing this?

Great idea to recycle light bulbs into Christmas decorations. Will have to give that a go.

Hi folks I have found them - click & go to it turns out I actually have a bottle of this already, I just have to find it though

I give up ! A link to finding these Glass-tiques would be good !

where can I find Glass-tiques? Would like to give it a try.

I would love to make these ornaments but i can't find Glass-tiques anywhere. Is there a product comparable to it.

You can use old lightbulbs to recycle them. White coated or clear bulbs - they both look great! Use hot glue to secure a hanger at the top.

Great idea! Love to recycle whatever I can...thanks for the tip!

Add sparkle by embedding a small crystal into each tear drop!
