Christmas Make at Home Kit – Stars – Choice of colours

Description

Fantastic Make Your Own Christmas Decoration craft kits which contain everything you need. Perfect for beginners or those with experience.

The craft kits include full instructions, step by step photos and safety guidelines in a PDF, sent via email. Or you can choose the printed instructions option. The clear glass in the kit is pre-fired which means no sharp edges. The coloured glass can be slightly sharp but tweezers are supplied.

Are you a crafter who wants to try something different? This is the kit for you! Worried you don’t have enough creative flair to be able to make your own? Fear not! You absolutely can do it. Instructions are supplied as a PDF download to guide you in making your own work of art – this will be available to download straight after purchase.
All you need to do is make your decorations and then send back to me to be fired in the kiln. I’ll then drill a hole, add some ribbon and you’ll have your very own decorations to cherish and keep, made by you! No experience needed, comprehensive photo and text instructions are provided.

Childen must be fully supervised if participating in making the kits.

The colours included in each kit are as follows:

  • Red, Green and White kit: Red & green frit, red green and white stringers and red & green dots.
  • Blue, Clear and White Kit: Light blue, dark blue, clear iridescent & white frit, light blue, dark blue and white stringers, light blue and dark blue dots.
  • Rainbow kit: Red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, purple frit, various coloured stringers.

All star kits are supplied with fusible glitter.

Use some of the colours or all of them, it’s entirely your choice! For example, you could use the supplied design ideas in the booklet or create your own design masterpiece.

How it works:

  • Buy the kit
  • Receive the kit
  • Design and make your own Christmas decorations
  • Take a photo of your finished design (this is really important – if anything happens in transit, I’ll be able to fix it)
  • Box it back up in the packaging it came in and send it to me
  • I’ll then fire your designs in the kiln, drill a hole and add a hanger
  • I send the completed decorations to you.
  • Turnaround time from me receiving your decorations then sending back to you will be approximately 1 week
  • There is no time limit for you to return your design to me for firing in the kiln – but if you’d like to display them for Christmas, you’ll need to send them back before 15th November 2022.
  • Please include your name and address when returning to me!

It sounds more complicated than it is! This glass bauble craft kit is a brilliant way to get creative and have something permanent and long lasting to add to your home. Fused glass can be situated inside or outside and doesn’t fade in the sun.

  • 2 or 4 x blank glass Christmas star shapes – approx 8cm across
  • Various sizes and colours of frit in screw top pots
  • Various coloured Stringers (thin rods of glass)

Care of Your Glass

I wrote a blog post on how not to hang your glass – please don’t use window suckers!

General Care Instructions:

  • Glass is breakable so please handle with care.
  • Gentle handwash only – no harsh chemicals or abrasives – wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth.
  • If your glass is to be placed outside, please protect it from wind and storms.


  • Jewellery Care:

  • Never immerse in water.
  • Ensure you remove your jewellery before bathing/showering, swimming and cleaning.
  • Sterling Silver and Plated Silver will always tarnish over time, especially when not worn for a time. Use a good qualty soft silver polishing cloth to remove any tarnish and bring back the shine.
  • You might not know there are different Rainbow colour versions! Here’s an explanation.

    The traditional rainbow is 7 colours –



  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow

  • The 6 colour rainbow is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & queer Pride (LGBTQ+):
