12x24 Days of Christmas Projects and Tours at thehappyhousie.com

Well, I’m back.  I can’t quite believe it either.  But I just have too many more Christmas crafts, decor ideas, and inspiration to share with you all….  So I’ve I’ve decided to extend my series to the 24 Days of Christmas instead of just 12!  Today I am here to share a super quick and easy project that you can easily whip up in an evening or a quick burst on the weekend: these simple & stunning DIY Snowball Ornaments.  They are the perfect thing to add a little sparkly winter wonderland feel to your Christmas tree!

How to make your own simple stunning DIY Snowball Ornaments at thehappyhousie.com

To make these I used some Martha Stewart Decoupage medium (that I had on hand), some Floracraft foam balls, and FloraCraft Diamond Dust.  I also used straight pins and a bit of ribbon to hang the completed ornaments with.

To make these I simply brushed my decoupage medium over half of each ball at a time, sprinkled the diamond dust over top of the ball, and then set it aside to let it dry for a few minutes.  I then came back and repeated the process on the other half.  If you sprinkle your diamond dust over top of a plate or a piece of paper it is easier to put your excess back into the container afterwards (because we never want to waste!).

As I mentioned, I simple used a pin to add some ribbon as hanger, and plopped them up on the tree…

Done! I love the sparkly slightly glittery and winter wonderland feel that they add to our blue, rustic natural tree.  They really do look like actual icy snowballs {which we never get around here…}.

You might even have all or most of these materials on hand – I did.  I always have a few extra foam balls hanging around in my Christmas Craft stash from year to year… waiting for inspiration to hit.
