How to Make Glass Christmas Orname

Create unique, festive, colorful holiday ornaments with the FURNO Heat Guns. They are easy to make and perfect for celebrating the season.

Materials List

  • Wagner FURNO heat gun
  • Paring Knife
  • Exacto Knife
  • Crayons in preferred colors
  • Ribbon or ornament hooks
  • Assorted mini glasses and dishes
  • Clear Glass Ornaments
  • Napkin or paper towel

Instructions

  1. GATHER YOUR HOLIDAY ORNAMENT SUPPLIES
    On a paper-covered work surface assemble all the tools and materials. For this project, you will need a Wagner FURNO heat gun, crayons in your preferred colors, clear glass ornaments, paring knife, ornament hooks, napkin or paper towel, xacto knife and assorted mini glasses and dishes.

  2. REMOVE CRAYON WRAPPERS
    Select crayons you would like to work with. Use an xacto knife to cut away paper covering around crayons.

  3. CUT CRAYONS INTO CHIPS AND SHARDS
    Use paring knife to cut crayons into chips and shards. Several colors are complimentary. Keep color shards separate and decide before assembling where you want colors to appear inside ornament.

  4. ADD CRAYON SHAVINGS TO ORNAMENT
    Remove metal top and add crayon shavings to inside of ornament... one to two teaspoons is plenty.

  5. HEAT ORNAMENT WITH A HEAT GUN
    Place napkin over glass votive to cradle the ball. With heat gun on low, gently heat and roll the ornament until crayon flakes become liquid and flow: 30 to 45 seconds.

  6. ADD ANOTHER COLOR OF CRAYON
    Let first color solidify (about one minute). Add second color of Crayola flakes to the front top of the glass ball.

  7. HEAT AND SWIRL THE ORNAMENT
    Place ornament atop napkin-covered glass, heat and swirl. Swirl ornament and heat with heat gun on low setting. Let crayon solidify and add third and fourth color if desired.

  8. ADD FINISHING TOUCHES TO THE ORNAMENT
    Tie ribbon on or add ornament hook and hang from Christmas tree bough or in a window. GREAT GIFT IDEA... give the Wagner FURNO heat gun as a gift and attach a few of the pre-made ornaments as inspiration.
