I was feeling a little bit bored this year with the Christmas ornament balls that we use as filler on our Christmas tree, so I thought I would spruce them up a bit. (Spruce--how's that for a little Christmas tree humor?)
Here are the necessary ingredients:
-Plenty of ornament balls. I went to Big Lots and got the cheapest ones I could find. I'm not ashamed to admit that. Plus, then there's no love lost of you mess one up or drop one on your tile floor and it shatters into a million pieces. Not that I have any experience with either of those scenarios.
-You will also need some puff paint (craft glue would work too) and some glitter.
Fortunately, I still had my outrageously overpriced glitter on hand from last year's ornament project.
Then have at it! Use your glue/paint to create whatever design strikes you and then sprinkle with glitter.
After it's all dry a little rinse gets the excess glitter off.
Here are a few of mine:
A word to the wise: When you rinse off your ornaments do not use hot water. The hot water will cause the mysterious substance that makes the ball colored to come off. Again, not that I have any experience with this.
I'm just sayin'. It could happen.
