I have a new "gotta try this"...I have tons of clear glass ornaments from my failed craft sale era. How much fun could I have with this...different shades of rocks (also have gravel from failed goldfish attempts,) different hooks and ribbons to suspend them...oh, yes. This I MUST try.
Photo ornaments - I've made these for years, using a different technique. A tip for the cheap (like me) is to use straight bleach on the inside of colored glass bulbs to turn them into clear glass bulbs. You can pick up vintage bulbs (different sizes) at yard sales or goodwill cheap, cheap, cheap.
