Upgrade a Plain Glass Ornament

These empty orbs offer an affordable catalyst for creativity. Fill one with small wooden chips, another with a single stunning peacock feather (attached to the ornament’s top with hot glue). Or compose a more obvious Christmas scene by dropping a model fir tree into a globe dusted with artificial snow. You can also use tweezers to position branches inside and even hot-glue a tiny cardinal in place.

Card Tree

Save your mantel from a paper blizzard with this “tree.” To craft it, you’ll need two wood dowels. Cut them into five segments, starting with eight inches wide and enlarging each piece by two inches. Fold two yards of ribbon in half, then place the shortest dowel about six inches from the fold, spacing the rest about five inches apart from one another. Hot-glue so the dowels are sandwiched between the two ribbon tails. Attach your favorite greetings to the dowels with small binder clips and hang.

Anywhere Ornaments

Make extra-special decorations a focal point by hanging them front and center on a staircase banister, or drape your favorites on doorknobs or chair backs.

Spread Joy: Paint wooden letters J and Y with red acrylic paint . Wrap a wooden letter O with green yarn; use hot glue to secure ends and attach a small bow and gems. To attach letters, arrange them facedown, then hot-glue small card stock strips from one letter to the next. To hang, hot-glue a loop of baker’s twine to the back of the O.

Old St. Nick: Use free template from website womansday.com to cut a hat from felt; hot-glue to a 4″ wood circle and add a pompom on top. Hot-glue two black-bead eyes, a 1/2″ wooden circle nose, and wooden teardrop ears. From white faux craft fur, cut and hot-glue semicircle beard and two teardrops as a mustache. To hang, hot-glue a loop of ribbon to the back.

Festive Llama: Use free template from website womansday.com to make a green saddle, brown eyes, white hair, and a white nose from felt. Cut the body, back legs, and snout from white felt, then again from card stock. Mount each felt piece on top of a card stock piece for structure. Hot-glue the back legs behind the body, then glue the snout, hair, and eyes in place. Add white felt dots as eye highlights. Hot-glue on saddle and red pompom trim, followed by more pompom trim around the neck and ankles. To hang, hot-glue a loop of ribbon to the back.
