How to Sublimate Glass Ornaments
Did you catch my post on How to Sublimate Glass Cutting Boards? We’re kicking it up a notch today with these beautiful faux stained glass ornaments. They have the look of stained glass without all the effort! These ornaments are specially made for sublimation, they are frosted on one side for the sublimation ink, and clear on the other. Which makes them perfect for these stained glass designs. I made 6 total and it took just minutes, so let’s get into what you will need to create some for yourself…
Don’t want to DIY the set yourself? I have them listed in my SHOP for a limited time!
What you will need:
3 inch Circle Punch (I got mine from Joann Craft stores more than 15 years ago) or Scissors
I created a quick video showing you the process and a closer look at the finished ornaments, so check it out below:
Let’s walk through the steps:
Select your designs and resize them to 3 inches to fit the ornaments. Print with your sublimation printer. No need to mirror the design. Cut with scissors or a circle punch.
Line up each image on the frosted side of the ornament, be mindful of the ornament hole. You will want to center the design. Secure the image with heat-resistant tape.
Set your heat press to 360 degrees and the timer to 240 seconds. Place butcher paper down, then your ornaments with the paper side up. Cover with more butcher paper then press.
Carefully remove the ornaments from your press, it will be hot! So use Heat-resistant gloves. Remove the paper to reveal the designs!
Add your favorite ribbon or twine and you’re all set!
Don’t they look awesome? I love how they turned out!
I hope you give this project a try. You can make them for all the seasons and holidays and they also make great gifts!
