Quick and Easy Holiday Ornaments

With the holidays fast approaching most of us have already completed our holiday decorations but there's still time for a few quick and easy projects. I made these cute ornaments using patterned paper from one of our Dec/Jan sponsors Nikki Sivils. Below is a list of what you'll need to make these:

Patterned Paper, Flower Punch
Styrofoam balls - I used 3" white balls
Glitter Glaze or Stickles
Flat head straight pins
Ribbon, pearls or crystal bling to cover the pin heads
Optional - Glimmer Mist to cover the Styrofoam balls

Start by punching out flowers from the patterned paper; next attach them to the ball using the straight pins. Once the ball is completely covered used the crystals or pearls to cover the pin heads. Next add your ribbon and bow for hanging and you're's that easy! This is a great project for kids and a great way to use some left over holiday patterned paper.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Tip #1 - Put the Glitter Glaze or Stickles on the patterned paper before punching out your flowers, that way you don't have to do them individually.

Tip #2 - Use a heat tool to set the Glimmer Mist if using on the Styrofoam balls.


  1. Pretty, this is something DD may try next week! I'm all glittered out from making the glittered ornaments!

  2. How did you attach the ribbon and bow for hanging? Hot glue maybe? I really like this project! cute, quick gifts! Thanks!

  3. Hi polite, thanks for your comment. Yes, a glue gun would work.
