DIY Stained Glass Ornaments

For the past several years, I tried to DIY some of our ornaments and I just felt happy whenever I see those ornaments, it reminded me of the past. It is nice to remember the story behind those ornaments especially those times when my son still helps me. When my son hits puberty, he is not fond of crafting anymore. Anyway, sharing our past DIY ornaments for the past several years. 

This year, I’ve made Stained Glass Ornaments using Cricut Maker, acrylic ornament, vinyl sticker, silver glittered cardstock, and Sharpie pens. I got the SVG file from @makermaine. 

Cutting is easy but weeding these designs is not a joke. It really needs a lot of patience and determination. Lol, I felt motivated to continue when I finished weeding one design. It took me several hours to finish weeding including my failed stickers. 

The second challenge is, I have very limited Sharpie pens, I only have few colors to choose from. I almost stop this project because I wanted to order more Sharpie pens but I realized that it will take more days before my order will arrive. Baka abutin ako ng Pasko bago pa ako matapos so I went on. 

I stopped my project after coloring the acrylic. The following day, I added a silver glittered cardstock at the back and it made all the difference. It hides the imperfection of my coloring skills. :) Lastly, I used a silver metallic cord for the string. We don’t usually put our Christmas tree in November but I was excited to use my new ornaments so now our Christmas tree is finally up. 

This is a nice Christmas gift but it is labor extensive, masakit sa kamay at batok e.
