- glass ball ornaments Tip: A budget friendly option would be to check your local thrift store for these; I found a pack of 12 for around $1.00.
- dried flowers or greenery
- Optional: a vessel such as a bowl for display
Step 1: Prepare the greenery.
Be sure all your plant pieces are dried out fairly well and then you can go through the bouquet and snip off all the greenery that you would like to use in the ornaments.
Step 2: Fill your ornaments.
Take off the top of the ornament that you would like to start with and insert a piece of greenery with either tweezers or the pointy part of a scissors. Gently push the greenery down into the bottom of the ornament and place the top back on. Tip: It’s up to you how many pieces of greenery you would like in each ornament. I found that less is more so it doesn’t look too crowded.
Step 3: Attach your ribbon.
Cut your ribbon to a desired length and tie onto the top of your ornament, either knotting it at the top or tying a bow. Tip: I used plaid ribbon because it felt very cozy and Christmas-like but you can choose any ribbon that you love to fit the look you’re going for.
Repeat the above steps until you have all of your ornaments filled!
Step 4: Decide how you would like to display your ornaments.
My sister had a very pretty white bowl that we placed most of the ornaments in as a centerpiece on her dining room table and hung the rest on her Christmas tree.
That’s it! From start to finish, this DIY took about 25 minutes. It’s super simple but adds such beauty to your home during this Christmas season. The elegance of the glass ball ornaments pairs perfectly with the natural elements of the greenery.
Tip: The bouquet greenery is what inspired these ornaments for me but you can use other items that are special to you such as jewelry, mementos, small photographs, pebbles or rocks, sea glass, or shells!
I hope you feel inspired to create these ornaments to either display in your home or give away as gifts! They are special keepsakes that will bring joy for years to come. May you find the love, hope, joy, and peace that this special season brings.
