We are way into December so the fact of the matter is that if I am going to make any gifts or decor, they better be fast and easy because there is just WAY TOO MUCH to do! Fortunately, I have a couple of ornament projects that can be created in a matter of minutes, but that the end result is fabulous enough to hang on your tree or even give as a gift!
Quick, Easy, No-Mess Christmas Ornaments
First, while I fully admit that I am not a big fan of loose glitter, I love sparkly, shiny ornaments during the holidays!
These ornaments are easy to make, are basically mess-free (since the adhesive and the glitter are INSIDE the ornament) and pack a ton of sparkle and shine.
Simply spray Therm O Web’s Glitter Dust inside a glass DIY ornament and then pour glitter inside and swirl it around until the entire inside of the ornament is covered. If you glitter an entire set of ornaments and save the box they came in, you can give them as a gift set.
If you’d like to see how quickly I created these ornaments, check out this short video:
If glitter is really not your style, I have a totally different ornament project to share using the Simple Stories Oh What Fun collection, Therm O Web iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive and some cardboard ornaments from a big box craft store. First, trace the ornament on the back side of the patterned paper you would like to use.
Next, cut out the ornament shape and adhere to the ornament using some iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive (which is perfect for any porous to porous surface.
Then cut a small strip of paper and adhere to the edge of the ornament. I found using the iCraft Runner XL worked great here.
Finally, adhere some stickers from the collection and pop them up with Therm O Web’s 3D Zots Adhesive Dots for extra dimension.
I hope you found some do-able ornament projects here today. These are so quick and easy that you can involve the whole family and make a craft afternoon out of it while you’re sipping your hot cocoa! Enjoy your holiday crafting!
