It's fun and easy!
Do this as an activity with children
or package it up and give it as a gift.
Clear glass Christmas ornaments
Remove the shiny top from the glass ornament.
Add popcorn kernels to the glass bulb. I placed about 40 kernels in the large glass bulb and 20 in the smaller bulbs. Not all the kernels will pop, so don't be afraid to add a few extra.
Place glass bulb with the opening up in a microwave safe bowl. Use a bowl that will hold the bulb so the opening stays pretty much upright.
Microwave bulb with popcorn kernels on high for 1 minute and 10 seconds
Careful - glass will be hot. Shake out any un-popped kernels
Put top back on the glass ornament and tie with a ribbon. Hang on Christmas tree.
This also makes a fun gift packaged with instructions.
