Glittery Fall Colors Glass Ball Ornaments

Home Decor

OK, here’s the thing.

I LOVE GLITTER.

A lot. So, why not glitter up some ornaments?! I wanted to make something that would make a fun Thanksgiving tree/arrangement and came up with these colors. These sparkle like CRAZY! I used the floor polish + glitter instructions you can find anywhere online. I definitely prefer a finer glitter – you get a lot more shine out of a finer glitter as opposed to a chunkier type.

I also made the “tree” shown in the photos. I searched and searched for a cheap, generic tree that could be decorated for any season, not just Christmas. I couldn’t find anything, so I decided to make my own! I purchased some sticks from a craft store, but you could definitely just pick up some sticks from your backyard (not an option in the urban areas I’ve lived in!). I used floral foam secured to the bottom of a galvanized bucket, then filled the bucket with some awesome glittery/sequined fall floral filler. I really love the way the tree/bush turned out, and it’s surprisingly sturdy!

Beachy Decor Glass Ornaments

Home Decor

As summer comes to a close, I’m looking back on these ornaments I hand painted in beautiful beachy colors. I especially love the frosted, matte finish of these. That finish, to me, makes these look a little more rustic, beachy cabin, instead of in-your-face shiny ornaments.

While these would look beautiful on a Christmas tree, I actually prefer this type of look and ornament for other types of decor, like hanging from ornament stands as nursery or baby shower decor, or even ornaments on an Easter tree. Of course the sky is the limit when working with plain, solid colors like these! Find more info here!
