Project Instructions

  • 1
    Fill one half of ornament with a mixture of colored jingle bells. Carefully place ornament halves together, lining up holes.
  • 2
    Glue Gold ribbon to top of ornament, down it, around it and back up to the top. Repeat step going in the opposite direction using Red ribbon. There should now be four sections. Repeat step two more times using Green ribbon. There should now be eight sections.
  • 3
    Brush a coat of Iridescent glitter glue onto one section between ribbons.
  • 4
    Sprinkle with Gold glitter. Shake off excess. Repeat this step for the opposite side of the ball. Then do this again to make Red section and Green section. When done, there will be a clear section between each glittered section.
  • 5
    Cut a 10 inch piece of Gold ribbon. Thread through hole and tie to create hanger.
  • 6
    Cut a 12 inch piece of Red, Green and Gold ribbons. Holding all three pieces together, measure 2 inches down at one end and tie a knot. Repeat step three more times.
  • 7
    With long ends of ribbon hanging down, glue knotted end to plastic hanger piece. Repeat step on three remaining sides.
  • 8
    Measure a 4 inch length of bead garland. Add a drop of glue to the last bead on each end before cutting the string to ensure beads don't fall off.
  • 9
