Now with the holiday season nigh, the air is filled with rich, cozy scents reminiscent of home, family, and years past. Glade has come up with a Limited Edition Winter Collection of fragrances, encapsulating all that is wonderful about the season, including one of my favorites, Sparkling Spruce. (more…)
Whip up some sparkling, shimmering ornaments super-quick, and with only a couple of supplies! This can even be a great project for kids to work on their fine motor skills.
Materials:sequins in leaf shapes or snowflake shapes / pearl-head pins in red or pearlized / round styrofoam balls (you can paint them different colors before using if you don’t like the white showing through) / glitter ribbon
Tools: glue gun / scissors
1. Cut a short length of ribbon, enough to go around the styro ball and create a hang loop.2. Use the glue gun to attach around the ball at the center. Loop the end of the ribbon over itself and glue together to hang.3. Use the pins to attach sequins all over the ball. For the holly ornament, use 2-3 leaf sequins strung on one pin, and for the snowflake ornament, use 1-2 sequins on one pin.4. Keep adding pinned sequins until the ball is completely covered.
Hang on your tree, pile in a bowl, attach to a garland or a wreath – however you decide to display these pretty ornaments, they’re sure to be the star of your holiday decorating!
