The 2nd ornament in this series is a tiny glass ball that’s been jazzed-up with glittering crystals. The petite size of the ball is what makes this so adorable!
It’s elegant – yet easy-peasy to make.
For a pretty gift, I often like to use handmade ornaments to embellish items like a box of luxurious soaps, fancy chocolates, Christmas candy, or even scented candles.
First you need some tiny glass ornaments. Since “size” is not usually indicated on the box, I’d say to look for something about as small as a melon ball. Hopefully there will be a pre-Christmas sale in progress where you shop!
Of course, supplies can vary according to what you may have on hand . . .
But I used:
Mini glass ball ornament
a 14″ piece of Beadalon 19-strand, nylon coated beading wire
2 Silver crimp beads
Vintage Peridot Green and Clear AB glass/crystal beads in assorted shapes/sizes/colors
Glass Seed Beads 11/0 in “Silver-Lined Crystal”
4 glass beads 6/0 – Peridot AB
Coordinating linen cord (or ribbon) for bow
Simply string the beads (using the first photo as a guide), crimp both ends, and tie a bow!
Wouldn’t a bunch of these be gorgeous on the tree?
