Altered Clear Christmas Ornaments with Echo Park

I had to be a frugal girl this year for Christmas. That basically translates into being a crafty girl. I made three gifts for three individuals with a set of $6.00 ornaments and my scrapbook stash. I was originally inspired by Garden Girl Wendy Sue for this project. I made three sets of three. Six dollars for three gift? It can't get any better than that!

For the first and third set I used Echo Park's Very Merry collection. For the second set - I used Echo Park's Winter Wishes collection. For the main ornament in each set - I wrapped a band of pretty paper around the bulb, filled the bulb with glass beeds, and added festive stickers from the collection. For the partner ornaments I simply rolled up pretty paper and stuffed them in the bulb. I added Doodlebug Twine to the top of each ornament for that finishing touch.

So if you have someone to buy for and you just don't have the money - go grab a set of clear ornaments and have at it! It's a nice gift and you'll have fun making them.
