    • Easy Handmade Ornaments

      Raid your hobby closet and try out these creative ways to transform a clear crafts-store ball ornament into something worth saving (or giving as a gift).

    • Rub-On Ornament

      Use Christmas designs, monograms, or stickers to create an easy and elegant ornament. Apply rub-on transfers to a clear ornament, pressing lightly to be sure your transfers are secure to the ornament.

    • Decoupage Ornament

      Embellish an ornament by covering it with decoupage glue, then adding bits of punched patterned paper. Brush remaining glue over the ornament and gently smooth to seal the paper. Allow the glue to dry before hanging.

    • Patterned Paper Ornament

      Cut out strips of your favorite patterned paper and stuff them into a clear ornament. Top with a color-coordinated ribbon for a designer effect.

    • Painted Ornament

      Wash the inside of your ornament and let dry. Coat the inside with metallic acrylic paint in the color(s) of your choice. Allow each coat of paint to dry completely before adding another (use two or three colors for maximum effect). Then, apply a rub-on sticker and color-coordinated gem to the outside.

    • Card Stock Ornament

      Have an abundance of card stock scraps? Roll scraps and put them in a clear ball for a stunning tree accent. Use rub-on letters to add a cheery thought to the ornament. Top it off with a ribbon hanger.
