Pretty Pearl Ornament: (Handmade Christmas Ornament Blog Hop)

Good Morning Friends!

This has been such a busy but fun week for Joy In Our Home! This past week some of my fabulous blogging friends and I shared our Wood Slice Projects. There are some super neat ideas and projects that all begin with a single piece of wood. Now today, 30 + bloggers and I are sharing handmade ornaments! They’re all so different and unique! There are links at the bottom of this post so be sure to check out all the rest!

So excited to share this beautiful but very easy ornament with you…

 You will need:

– a Styrofoam ball (your choice of size)

– bag of pearls (again, it’s totally up to you what size or color you use. I think a variety of sizes would love beautiful too)

– hot glue gun and (lots!!!!) of glue sticks

– ribbon to hang ornament

– nail

There’s really no right or wrong way to glue the pearls on the ornament. You’ll soon see a design form as you’re gluing them on. Keep gluing them on until there’s only a small space left for a nail and a few pearls that you can glue on afterwards.

Next, I took my piece of ribbon and using the glue gun, I glued the two ends together. I then took a long nail (with rivets so it would stay in the Styrofoam ball better, once inserted) and poked the nail through the ribbon.

Insert the nail into the Styrofoam ball. I then glued some more pearls around the nail and it was done! I wanted to add a little something to it so I made a bow using some tulle but you can leave it plain or add a bow.
