Default stamped ornament ideas needed!

Hi everyone, I'm having a Christmas in July on the 30th and would like to have stamped ornaments to display. I know I can stamp the dominoes. Any other ideas?

How do I embellish plain glass balls with stamped images? I also have plenty of candles on hand to do the stamped tissue paper application. Those are fun to do.

Any other ideas are greatly appreciated!

Vera

BTW I just got back from convention! My upline, Michelle Rahal won 4th Rising Star! I just have to make a shout out to her. Woo woo!

For clear glass ornaments:

I stamp an image on acetate and color with Sharpies or Glaze Pens. Cut the image out in a circle the same diameter as the glass ornament. Remove the top of the ornament, roll the acetate up tightly to insert it through the top of the ornament. When you release it, it should "wedge" in the center of the ornament. Add tinsil, or some other sparkly, if needed!

Default Ornaments

Last year we made applesauce and cinnamon ornaments. (Equal amounts of both, plus a squoosh of liquid white school type glue, smoosh it all together with hands in a large bowl. ) Roll about a handful out to 1/2 " thick on waxed paper. Use holiday shaped cookie cutters and suitable stamp set. We used white craft ink - SCRUBBING CAREFULLY BETWEEN EACH STAMP, so as not to destroy the whiteness. Also used a straw to make a hanging hole at top. I cut out a tree and stamped ornaments and a star; there were some snowflakes and snowmen stamped with little snowflakes - you get the idea. They just air dry - and smell delicious! I kept mine out after the decorations got put away, 'cause I still like to sniff it ....
Have fun.
