2. Cut a 4-inch circle from metallic card stock.

3. Trace the patterns on tracing paper; cut out. Trace around ornament cap twice on silver paper; cut out.

4. Cut a 5 x 2-inch rectangle from silver card stock. Cover the back of the rectangle with double-sided tape, then cut three curvy lines.

5. Wrap wire around something round, such as a large marking pen, at least twice to form the hanger; cut wire piece to include a complete circle.

6. Tape one ornament cap to front of ornament. With ornament face down, put glue on ornament cap and attach wire ring. Align and glue second cap with front cap.

7. For ornament with curves, peel off paper and apply them to the front of ornament, leaving spaces in between to let the metallic background show through. Trim the outer edges of the wavy strips even with the round ornament.

8. Fill in spaces with glue; sprinkle glitter on the glue, shaking off any excess. Let dry. If you get glue or adhesive on the ornament, wipe it clean with nail polish remover and a soft cloth.
