4 Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments

     Today, I am excited to be sharing 4 easy DIY Christmas ornaments!  These are great DIYs to do on Christmas Eve with kids or adults.  All of these adorable ornaments are easy and quick to do.  So without further ado, lets get started!

 1. Twinkling Tinsel

You will need...

-A clear glass bulb

-Tinsel {I chose fuchsia}

-Glitter Paint {I used this one}

-Ribbon, string, or hook {so you can hang it on the tree}

-Blow Dryer {optional}
   
Step 1:

Start off by pouring a fair amount of glitter paint into your bulb.  Roll the ornament around in your hand until the whole inside of your bulb is covered.  Turn the bulb upside down and let the excess paint drain out.  I let mine drain overnight.  You could also use a blow dryer to get the paint to dry faster.  It should look something like the picture below when done...



Step two:

All that's left to do is stuff the tinsel in the bulb!


 You're done!

 

2. Roudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

You will need...
-A clear glass bulb

-Brown paint

-Sparkly red pom pom 

-Two small googly eyes

-Sparkly gold pipe cleaner

-Ribbon or hook {to hang it on the tree}

-Hot Glue Gun


Step 1:

Once again you will need to pour some paint into the bulb and roll around your hand until covered.

 

Step 2:

Using your hot glue gun, add the nose {sparkly pom pom} and googly eyes.

Step 3:

Take a pipe cleaner and hot glue it around the top of the bulb.  It should look something like the picture below... 


 Then adjust it to your liking!





3. Colorful Pom Poms

-Glass ornament

-Pom poms

-Ribbon of your choice

 
This ornament is. So. Easy.  No lie!  Honestly, I was worried that this DIY was too easy.  Then I thought, who doesn't love a super-easy-five-second-DIY? ;)

 Step 1:

All you need to do is fill your bulb with different sized pom poms.  Make sure you really fill it up!


You're done!  I added a ribbon to give it a little more.   If you decide to add ribbon, I would recommend hot gluing it as you go.


4. Double the Sparkles

You will need...

-A clear glass bulb

-Glitter

-A piece of paper

-A round paint brush {I used Martha Stewart brand from Michaels}

-Elmer's glue
  
Step 1:

First, you want to make a tunnel out of the piece of paper.  Picture below...



Step 2:

Using the tunnel you just made, pour some glitter into your bulb.
 


 Step 3:

Dip your round paint brush into some glue and then sprinkle some glitter over it.  Pictures below...







Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!


Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
