Glass Ornaments: A DIY Gift Idea for a Loved One

Glass Ornaments. Throughout the year, we always rack our brains for that perfect gift that we want to get that special someone in our lives. Whether this is a close friend, a significant other, or a family member, we want this gift to be perfect. However, what if the perfect gift is right around the corner and is something that you can easily make yourself?! DIY gifts are often more heartfelt than what you buy at the store. It shows that you put time into what you were doing and it shows that you care. While many people worry about the dollar amount attached to a gift, they should be worried about finding that special something for someone. 

With this being said, if you have someone close to you that has recently lost a loved one, there is one way that you can help the person to always remember them. And this is through making an ornament that is going to commemorate this person. It can be something that your friend or family member holds onto for years to come. It is a heartwarming gift that shows you understand the grief that they are going through and that you are here for them whenever they need you. 

How to Make One

To start, you are going to need a clear, ornament. In most cases, you are going to want to use a glass bulb that can easily be filled with the items that you are going to be using. The idea behind this is to make a keepsake, so be careful when you are filling these. 

What exactly are you going to put inside this bulb? That is really up to you. Here are a few ideas:

  • The small paper that is distributed at the funeral or visitation can be a great addition inside this bulb. Rip up the pieces to show the name in full, as well as the picture of the person. 
  • Did this person have a special hobby? If you can narrow down something that was special to this person, then see if you cannot somehow put this inside the bulb. For example, if they loved to sail or the beach, then you could easily put the sand into the bulb, along with small seashells. 
  • Better yet, find something that the two loved to do together and make this glass bulb a show of this shared passion.

In the end, this is going to be one gift that the person greatly appreciates!
