My new addiction!





I just love these fillable clear glass ornaments!  What a fun project and a cute gift!  I found mine at Hobby Lobby (on sale for $2.50 pack of 4 jumbo or pack of 9 medium size).  I was up all hours of the night last week filling these little suckers up.  I couldn't stop!

Sand and shells....

A beachy ornament I found at:
Completely Coastal

was the inspiration to start this "project" (which turned into an all nighter "crafting" session!)

Check out her blog for other beautiful "beachy" decorating! 

For these, I cut strips of holiday sayings scrapbook paper and used a chopstick to arrange them in the ornament...




For this one, I filled with red hots and used a cute holiday sticker...



And this one is filled with butterscotch candy wrappers!


I poured in a little gold acrylic paint and swirled it around.  Then, I used a little spray adhesive on the outside top half and sprinkled on some gold glitter...
 

A little piece pulled off my evergreen wreath and a cute ribbon...
