Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These ornaments are quite unique and I have never seen this type offered project done quite this way! And the fact that they are shatterproof is nice, although I would think you still would have to take a bit of care in case they could crack a bit with temperature changes, storage conditions, etc. has anyone made these? You probably could glue on some little gems or buttons or even a small metalic rope around it for added fun! So pretty!
