This tear drop ornament is very pretty. Has anyone made it? It looks like a lot of fun to make, but you would need a steady hand, I am wondering if you could work with it in an egg carton, and a turntable to spin it gradually as you go around making the drops on the upper exposed top, then after drying, invert it to do the other side. Great idea!

These are down right gorgeous. I too have glass ornaments from last year that I never used. I have pretty little heart shaped ones that would be just perfect for this craft. I have never done thus before but after seeing how easy it is and the great results, I am off to get the supplies!

an interesting and attractive ornament - so satisfying to decorate a tree with decorations made yourself and/or with the help of family members

Awesome! I have two boxes of glass ornaments I bought last year and never got around to using for a craft. I will definitely try this out. Does the paint take long to dry? I am wondering if this can be done in a day or if I need to put them somewhere overnight so the cats can't get to them. I've never painted on glass before. Do I need to use a special type of paint?

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.

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

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

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