on the cheap: ornaments!

i really love ornaments, and i really love making them! i had been filing away some ornament ideas, so much so that now it is christmas eve and i didn't really make any of them! i ended up only making one kind, since i had intended it as a family gift.

all you need is a flat glass ornaments ($1), some letter stickers (had these in my stash), and some glass etchant, which is a little on the pricey side, but when you consider how many things one little jar will etch, i still consider it cheap, especially if i remember to use a coupon when i buy it in the first place.
the etching process is really, really easy too. a little red ribbon, and done! a beautiful, chic, and personalized ornament on the cheap:
and it may be a little late for this year, but here are some others i am definitely planning to try in the future, all on the cheap!

glittered yarn balls

cork mini trees

foil snowflake balls

to-go lid wreath

and a great one that could double as a gift: mocha mix ornament balls! also, if you're ever in need of a quick crafty idea plus tutorial on how to pull it off, one pretty thing is amazing! have you seen this site? what an awesome resource.

:::edited to add:::
speaking of resources, have you seen this list? 100 holiday crafts by the long thread... ornaments, trees, advent calendars, wreaths, garlands... this could last me all year until next christmas!
