Decorated Glass Ball Ornament
Glass ball ornaments are inexpensive and come in a variety of colors, but let's face it -- they're pretty plain. You can easily add a little pizzazz to the ones on your tree with a few materials and a dose of creativity. Get familiar with decoupage techniques by layering a couple of colors of tissue paper or some pieces of wrapping paper and adhering with Modge Podge. Or, use paint pens to create circles or squiggles in different colors. You can also cover the ball in a thin paste of Elmer's Glue and roll it in silver or gold glitter to add a little sparkle.
