My Christmas ornament collection started over 40 years ago. As well, as my vintage brooch and pin collection. I thought it would be unique to combine the two for Christmas. Let me show you How To Embellish Christmas Ornaments, the easy way.
These don’t take a lot of time, either. That’s always on the plus side, isn’t it? From beginning to end it will take you about 30 minutes to embellish 3 ornaments.
Today I am joined by a few of my blogging friends to share their darling and festive DIY Christmas ornament ideas. They will be listed below for easy access.
Now for the tutorial to embellish your ornaments with brooches and pins…
You don’t need any type of adhesive for this project. Allowing you to change your Christmas ornaments as many times as you want. Let’s get started…
I LOVE the Coastal Elegance glass ornaments from Balsam Hill. Each one is stunning in it’s own right. The colors, quality and style are exquisite.
I wanted to add embellishments to create a new vibe on my Christmas tree this year.
This is what what I used:
*A variety of Christmas ornaments/balls
*1 yard of ribbon, lace or tulle per each ornament
*1 vintage brooch or pin for every ornament
Using a variety of ribbons and colors will add texture and personality to your Christmas ornaments. As always, chose the colors YOU like.
You can coordinate with matching colors, like I did with the pink/coral color ornament. The pink tulle adds the softness that I am looking for.
With a yard of tulle, pull it through the loop on top of the ornament. And then through the clasp of the brooch. Tying a simple (but tight) shoe lace knot, my brooch is attached. It is THAT easy.
*TIP: Allow enough give in the tulle so the brooch hangs from the ornament a little.
To add a pin, leave enough allowance so the ribbon hanging about 1 1/2 inches from the top of the ornament. You can “eyeball” this. Or measure it out with a measuring tape. Use your creativity to make it what YOU like.
Thread the ribbon through the pin clasp on the back of the pin. Then tie a taunt shoe lace bow to the ornament loop.
It could not be any easier, so I used the same steps with the white ornament, too.
This technique will change the overall look of your Christmas ornaments.
I love the added sparkle and glam, don’t you?
