This year will be my first with my own Christmas tree. That being said, I am seriously lacking on the decorations. Instead of purchasing everything, I’d like to make some of it myself.
Free People’s blog, BLDG 25, recently featured a DIY Christmas Ornaments post which not only will save you money (ornaments can be pretty expensive), but is also just plain fun.
What You’ll Need:
Clear plastic ball ornaments (these can be found at Hobby Lobby, other craft stores, or online)
Other small decorations (i.e. glitter, yarn, fake feathers, fake flowers, figurines)
Thin ribbon or thread – for hanging the ornament
Optional: glue – hot glue gun or fabric glue (only if you want a decoration to stay in place inside the ball)
What to do:
This is the fun part – there are no specific directions for how to make your ornaments since each one is different, but here are some ideas for inspiration:
