To make this glittery snowball tree ornament I actually rescued a broken tacky christmas decoration from last year. By itself the gold plastic ball looks, well, blah. It was part of a very nicely decorated gift wrapping, once upon a time. Now, it was going into the bin or I was going to save it and transform it into a usable ornament for a Christmas Tree.
So, I started with this gold plastic ball. I covered it with Delight™ and purposely left the bumps so it would look more like a real icy snowball. The kind you make on a wet snowy day. Yes, here in Canada we have names for the several varieties of snow we get. LOL.
Once the Delight was dry I covered the top part of the snowball with some shiny sealer that already has a golden glitter incorporated into it.
Once the sealer dried I glued on some acrylic snowflake table scatter, a piece of gold ric-rack and a bow.
Finally, I strung a piece of ribbon through the hook to hang the snowball from the tree's branch.
I hope that you are inspired to make some ornaments or other winter decorations of your own.
