DIY glass ball ornaments two ways
DIY holiday ornaments are my favorite, but I also like to buy unique handmade ornaments, and to exchange them with friends. In fact, I probably have an ornament problem. But I can’t stop!
I had a supply of these glass ball ornaments on hand that I never got around to using last year. I was inspired to play around with them and came up with a couple of fun ideas to use on our tree this year. I was inspired to color a few of them with neon craft paint. These are painted from the inside, and begin by pouring a fair amount of paint into the glass ornament. Slowly turn the ornament to coat the inside. Once the inside is completely coated, stand the ornament upside down in a glass to let the excess paint come out. The result of the first painting was a little too see-through for what I wanted, but a second coat of paint did the trick.
For the remaining ornaments, I grabbed some bright yarn from my stash and made some pompoms using my favorite pompom maker. Once you made a batch and trimmed them up, just shove several coordinating colors into each glass ornament.
This is a fun DIY project to do with the kids, and trust me, pompoms are addictive. And just so happy!
