Materials Needed:

  • clear glass ornaments
  • decorative ribbon or twine
  • computer and printer
  • lightweight card stock
  • pencil

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.

Cut and Curl

Cut up each message into strips. Then curl the paper around a pencil to make it rounded.

Attach Ribbon

Finish this project by tying a bit of ribbon or twine to the ornament as a hanger.
