Things to Consider When Buying Glass Ornament Blanks

When buying glass ornament blanks, there are a few things to consider. (Trust me, I’ve bought a ton of ornaments that were different than what I was expecting.)

Ornament Ball Sizing

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I struggle with sizing when buying things online. We’ve all seen the memes of someone buying a sofa and it’s actually for a dollhouse.

I’ve had the same thing happen when buying ornaments.

Here’s what you need to know: regular ornament bulbs are between 80-100mm or 3″.

Plastic VS Glass Ornaments

I know that glass is classy, but I’ve had better luck crafting with clear plastic ornaments than glass.

Some glass ornaments are even coated with something that prevents stuff from sticking to the inside.

Plastic is great for homes with pets and children. Or clumsy adults. I’ve broken more ornaments than my children have.

But if you love glass, then buy glass.

Open Vs Closed

I’ve also accidentally bought ornaments that open. I love these ornaments for using with alcohol ink and placing larger items in.

However, they do have a seam on the side that is very visible.

Here are some of my favorites.
