Holiday Trees & Wreath

There’s still time!!

Yes you can crank out fused glass holiday gifts with only 10 days to go ...

The first of these sparkling keepsakes may take you an hour, start to finish. Subsequent versions — and they'll all be delightfully different —will take half that.  And if you really want to speed things up, just nip up your scrap without the attention to detail that I demonstrate in the video, and place them without such meticulous fuss. 

In my experience, fused glass tree ornaments look great, until you hang them on a tree. Even well-lit, a holiday tree (mine, anyway) never seems to show glass well. So I prefer these projects backlit on stands (night light hardware works) or hung in a window. 

I hope you make a few and enjoy doing so, and if you give them to friends or family, be sure to drop by every year during the holidays to make sure they're out and prominently displayed!

’Tis the season … I wish you all a life of peace and love.
