Clear Plastic Ornament Balls – 10 Cute Ways to Use Them This Christmas

Clear Plastic Ornament Balls – 10 Cute Ways to Use Them This Christmas

 

 

I have gotten many empty clear plastic ornament balls either from Christmas Clearance sales, or at places like Oriental Trading. Here are some options over on Amazon:

I have a few ideas that are on my own personal tree, and I found some other great ideas from fellow crafty bloggers.  Hope you feel inspired – send me pictures of any ornaments you try that end up on your tree!

1.  Glitter Nailpolish:  I found some green glitter nailpolish and poured some into the empty bulb.  I swirled it around until the ball was completely covered.  This one would be fun to try other colors, or more than one color and do a fun swirly pattern!

2.  Keepsake Christmas Dress:  I have 2 daughters, which means each Christmas I have a blast finding them each some fun and festive dresses.  They usually only wear them for their Christmas card pic, and on Christmas day.  Its kind of a bummer they don’t get more use.  But in order to preserve the fun Christmas memory, I took some snowflake tulle from my oldest’s 2nd Christmas dress.  It’s a fun way to keep a memory, and give the dress one more use.

3.  Cellophane:  This iridescent plastic cellophane is fun to crinkle up and place inside the ball.  It gives off fun colors and would sparkle beautifully next to Christmas tree lights.  You can get some cellphone over on Amazon here.

4.  Fill with Fake Snow and Paper Snow Flakes:  Grab some fake snow and this snowflake paper punch and fill the empty plastic ball with those!  I also embellished this one with some fun glitter washi tape too!Clear Plastic Ornament Balls - 10 Cute Ways to Use Them This Christmas.

5.  Snow Man:  Make your clear empty ball into a snow man!  Fill it with white crinkle cut paper shreds and use some sharpies to draw on a snowman face on the front.  Grab a pipe-cleaner and puff balls and glue on some snowman ear muffs as well!
