I’m still in a bit of a turkey-coma from Thanksgiving, but now that it’s over the countdown to Christmas is officially ON! Every year we love making
Step 1: Place the open ornaments dome side up, and spray paint in a variety of colors. Let dry. Apply additional coats as necessary.
Step 2: Once dry, fill all your ornaments with tiny gifts.
Step 3: To make the caps, cut a 3 by 1 ½ inch piece of mirrorboard and slightly curl it with a pencil. Punch out another piece of mirrorboard with a ¾ inch hole punch. Using the single dot hole punch, punch a hole in the center of the ¾ inch circle.
Step 4: Hot glue the ends of the mirror board. Adhere the circle, applying glue from the inside.
Step 5: Loop a piece of twine through the ornament cap, continuing through the top of the bulb. Tie a knot and slide the cap down onto the bulb.
Step 6: Place numbered stickers on the exterior of each ornament 1 to 24.
Step 7: Hang your ornaments up in numeric order. Let the countdown begin!
