Hustle and bustle and creating up a storm–I bet that's what you're doing this week in preparation for the Christmas holiday. With all of the gifts that need giving, well, there are always those people who make the list at the last moment – a party hostess, the new next door neighbor, the gift exchange at work hubby forgot to tell me about…. This ornament is just the ticket to make someone feel special and though it can be made in under 10 minutes, it looks like a $15 or $20 boutique ornament!


  • Any Connie Crystal Suncatcher
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue (optional)
  • Empty Glass Globe Ornament (50% off at most craft stores right now!)
  • Ribbon or Seam Binding
  • Optional: Clearsnap Design Adhesives and Designer Foils (or stickers)
Just sit back and watch this handy dandy video showing how to create this fast and fancy ornament!

  1. Beautiful looking ornament and so, so easy. Great video. Thank you.
    This would also be cute by adding alittle Buffalo snow inside the ornament.
