Do you remember the beautiful Christmas ball wreaths from last year? Well I made two of them and absolutely love them! So I was trying to figure out what I could do this year with Dollar Store Christmas balls and here is what I came up with.
Medium and small (plastic) Christmas balls
Glue gun and LOTS of glue
I wrapped the Styrofoam cone with Dollar Store tinsel garland and glued it down as I went. I have tried to spray paint the styrofoam before putting the ball on, but it doesn't work. The tinsel really hides any gaps and imperfections..definitely worth the $1.
I then started to glue the balls onto the tinsel, starting with the medium sized ones at the bottom and then filled in the gaps with the smaller. The ornaments just seem to be hanging from tinsel but they stick :)
I think the total for this was $5 or $6 for the ornaments, $1 for the tinsel and $3 for the Styrofoam.
