Santa's House

Santa's House
These christmas ornaments were made using only two shapes of glass to build Santa's House, a two inch square for the bottom and a triangle for the roof.  These ornaments are double sided.  A christmas tree on one side and santa/snowman on the other side.  They are made using scraps of stained glass and old sheet music.   First I cut two inch squares out of sheet music, and dyed the sheets using water colors.  Once dry, I stamped a small christmas tree and embossed with green embossing glitter on one side and added silver embossing glitter to look like snow.  On the other side I glued a small picture of santa/snowman and embossed silver glitter to look like snow.  When completely dry, I sandwiched the piece of sheet music between two pieces of  clear textured stained glass.  Finally, I soldered the triangle roof and the two inch square to form a small house and added a ring on top for hanging on your christmas tree. If you like these, look for my Christmas in July Special next month.  Click on the picture to get a bigger view.
