Like you, I have A LOT of Christmas ornaments. My collection started over 40 years ago. For a new look on this year’s Christmas tree, let me show you How To Embellish Christmas Ornaments, the easy way.
It doesn’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.
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?
I am looking forward to decorating my tree with my embellished Christmas ornaments. I can’t wait to see what YOU come up with, too.
Make it wonderful day.
