Easy Elegant DIY Christmas Ornaments

Friday, December 20, 2019

Wow! Again, this year, at this time, I feel like I'm going a mile a minute trying to wrap up last minute projects and tasks. Not to mention the running around for shopping and errands. At times I do wish things could be a little easier and more calm this time of year, but I guess it just comes with the territory, and I love the Christmas and Holiday season so much--it's definitely my favourite part of every year--so I'll never "Krank" it!! I'll put too many things on my "to do" list, stress, meltdown even, and, at some point in there, realize it's all going to be fine - it's Christmas! So, in the spirit of squeezing tasks in, of course I had to get up at least one Christmas post! In this post I'll show you how to make 2 different Christmas ornaments for an elegant touch to your Christmas Tree. And most of the supplies can be found at a dollar store. Let's take a look...

The first ball ornament I'll show in the video tutorial is this pretty pearl wrapped ornament. I saw something similar in a store or magazine and I knew immediately that I definitely needed to re-create it for my tree! It's super simple to make--one could more than likely figure it out on their own--but I'll show you how I made mine.



The second ornament I'll show you is this really fun sequin and pearl ornament. Again, I saw something similar to this in a local store and thought it was so pretty, and looked simple to make--just a bunch of pretty thrown on a ball...literally! So this is my version.


I do go over all the needed supplies in the video before I start each ornament, but I've listed the supplies you'll need as well. See the video for visual explanation.
