Beveled Glass Ornaments From Old Brass Light #OriginalOrnaments

I had so much fun at the Habitat ReStore talk this past weekend.
Would you believe this dated octagon brass light fixture turned into 16 Christmas ornaments?
My favorite holiday decorations are these adorable beveled glass ornaments. Let me show you how to make them.
The complete material list is on the blog, listed below all of the photos.
Put on your gloves for this first task! To free the beveled glass, you’ll need to poke, prod and cut at the brass surrounding the glass.

I have lots more tips on my blog post -
After all the glass is free, clean both sides of the glass with windex and a soft cloth. Scratch off any dirt with your fingernail (or a razor blade).
There are lots of options for each piece of glass but I particularly liked this one with a photo framed with scrapbook paper. Full details to make this are on the blog.
I made a hanger, glued it to the back then made a loop with the ribbon and it's ready to hang it on the tree!
Wouldn't these make perfect gifts for grandparents?
