DIY Christmas Ornaments

Did you know Christmas is 42 days away?! WOW! Christmas is coming!

With that knowledge, I decided to make a few new ornaments for my tree.  These are very easy to make.  These ornaments could even make a very fun craft afternoon for you and your kids, might be better for older children though.  

All these supplies I got at Michael's!  I'll show you 5 ornaments I created.  Feel free to come up with some new ideas based off these.  There are a lot of possibilities!

Gather your supplies:

The first ornament I cut strips from pages of an old book and stuffed them into the glass ball.  Done!

Next one is little bit more challenge.  Find the small bottle pipe trees, place a dot of hot glue on bottom of tree, then use tweezers to place in ornament quickly before glue drys.  Then fill with fake snow. Done again!

Third one is just as easy as the first, just fill with feathers. Done!

Fourth ornament, use any glitter color of your choice.  

First, fill empty glass ornament with a little bit of Pledge Multi`Surface Floor Cleaner and swirl all around the inside of ornament.  Pour excess cleaner back into bottle.  

Place ornament upside down to allow excess to drain out.  

Next funnel a good bit of glitter into the glass ball and roll around to coat inside with glitter.  Turn ornament upside down and tap gently to shake out excess glitter.

The floor cleaner will harden and seal the glitter. Done!

Last ornament!  Fill with paint color of your choice and roll it around.  Use as few or as many colors as you would like. 

Allow ornament to dry upside down for about 20-30 minutes between colors. Then you are done with your final ornament!
