Each year for our big family Christmas Eve dinner, we like to set the table with placecards that everyone can keep and later hang on their tree. Each year, it's so fun to see all the ornaments from past Christmases. The last time we did a glass ornament was in 2001, and everyone at the table signed their name. Ten years later, all the kids are grown up, so we thought it would be fun to do one again. These are so easy to do: all you need is a paint pen!

Here's the 2001 ornament:

And some of the signatures:

And here's what we'll be signing this year:

 I thought it would be fun for everyone to have their name on the front. This is such a quick and easy project, and it's so nice to have the look back at the ornament and remember who was at the table that year.

We hosted a dinner party for some of our neighbors this weekend, and because I had a few ornaments left over after making them for the family, I thought it would be a nice take-home gift for our dinner guests. Each couple got an ornament like this one:

Merry Christmas!

WOW, I could see this as a wonderful Bridal Shower, Wedding, or Baby Shower thing...  All the guests could create their own ornament for the bride and her groom for their first first Christmas! or for Baby's first Christmas! and a great idea for Wedding placecards too for a Winter Wedding!
