Here are some step by step instructions on how to make a pretty simple ornament. You get a glimpse into what I am thinking will be the ornament I am going to give all the kids this year. Shh! Don’t tell! 😊
Pick up some clear bulb ornaments from the craft store and select a theme.
Find some items to go into your bulbs; bells, buttons, miniatures, a special message, paint, ribbon, cutouts etc. - plenty at the craft store too. Make sure they will fit into the little hole at the top of the bulb!
Find some filler; fake snow, sand, and confetti to add cushion, color, dimension or just to fill up the space.
Find some ribbon for the bulb to hang from and little tags to add a personal message, the year or a name. You can also find little bows, little sprigs of evergreen and holly, little bells, etc. to tie to the top.
Put your filler and your little holiday items inside the bulb. Little messages printed on slips of paper are great too!
Tie on the tag with ribbon or clear fishing wire.
Tie some ribbon to the top of the bulb and there you have it! A beautiful memento of this year’s Christmas to give away or to decorate upon your own tree!
