On vacation, Caleb had an awesome opportunity to blow his very own glass ornament! He was so excited, and the ornament turned out beautiful!
First, the guy put a sand mixture in the oven.
He rolled it a bit to cool it off.
Caleb got to choose the color he wanted. He wanted red, so the guy rolled the hot sand in the red glass pieces.
Back in the oven!
He shaped it a bit before it was time to blow it.
Then Caleb was on! He blew air into the ornament with a long tube that was attached to the pole. He's been telling everyone that his air is in the ornament. :)
After a whole lot of shaping...
...this is what the still very hot ornament looked like. We left it to cool overnight.
This is the beautiful, finished product...with a very excited little boy!
