Glitter Christmas Balls
This year I deemed that Christmas was going to be spectacular! The tree was up the week before Thanksgiving and I thought that this year I would be super Martha and handmake every ornament on the tree. Yeah, that didn’t happen – but I did get a few different ornaments made!
This was one of my favorites to make – so much so that I made a set for my mother-in-law as a gift. I purchased some Christmas balls at the dollar store and used an old book I got at a yard sale – the rest of it was Elmers Glue and Glitter. It was so easy, I tore the book pages into strips and dipped them into the glue and then put the wet paper on the ball. Once I had the entire thing covered with paper, I sprinkled glitter all over it and let it dry.
This project was a little messy and sticky, but the results were worth it!
P.S. – If you are giggling over the title “Christmas Glitter Balls” you are welcome – it made me giggle too!
