Write Messages for Recipients

First, purchase clear glass ornaments from a craft supply store or a home improvement store. Then, type personalized holiday messages for each ornament on lightweight card stock. Try and keep every message to just one line. You can include many messages on the same piece of paper, but make sure to leave ample space between each line.
