It’s time to dust off that box of decorations, spruce up your space with some seasonal decor, and join us at Craft Night for a free workshop dedicated to making glass ornaments. Aya Rosen from LoucheLab wlll be joining us at the Etsy Labs to share her skills and know-how for decorating glass ball ornaments with Pebeo Vitrea paints.
Do you count yourself among the I-can’t-draw set? Well, fear not! This project is designed for you too. As long as you know how to hold a pen and write, you’ll learn how to make a beautiful ornament. For a sneak peek of this project, check out this week’s How-Tuesday post, complete with instructions and photos. This is a fun project for a group and a range of ages and skill levels, so even if you’re based far away from Brooklyn, NY, I invite you to host your own Craft Night!

- Glass orb Christmas ornament (available at craft stores, discount stores or almost anywhere). I used clear, but you can also use light colored ones
