Christmas is the season of the most amazing decorations of the year. Shops give their best to give their windows a festive makeover and we get out our christmas ornaments to brighten up our homes. Create your very own Christmas ornament for a personal touch.

 

You can get as creative as you want and you won’t need much. The first thing you need will be some transparent glass balls. And from there on you can create whatever you want. Here some examples.

Feather ball

transparent glas ball and grey weathers

 

You can put feathers in them. I chose some grey ones. Furthermore I found it easier to cut off the base of the feather (the hard part). It is easier to bend and arrange them in the ball.

 

 

Golden Christmas ornament

Take some sticky tape and paper and mask the part you don’t want to paint. Spray your glass ball outside or in a well aired room. Afterwards let them dry by hanging them on a rope.

 

 

Pink dots

nail polish in purple and pink shades

 

For this Christmas ornament you will need nail polish in different colors and of course your transparent Christmas ball. You can take whatever colors you like and even just use one single color.

Put little dots with your nail polish on the ball. I decided to put a lot on the top and gradually making less.

 

 

Nature in a ball

Put winter on your Christmas tree. Take some fir and branches and put them in the glass ball. Take a stick to arrange the branches in the ball. You can put bells, berries, whatever you want in it. I put a ribbon on top of it to give it the finishing touch.
