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.

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 http://www.texasart.com/g4135/DecoArt-Glass-tiques.htm 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!
