Christmas is around the corner, and it’s time to get a start on those crafts whether it be for yourself or for presents. We tend to make Christmas ornaments for the grandparents.
I had looked at clear ornaments a few years ago, but finally decided to buy some this year to do it.
DIY Christmas Ornaments that Kids Can Do

Here is what we used to fill our ornaments:
- different colored vase fillers
- Christmas (small) pompoms
- tiny bells
- scrapbook supplies
- fake snow
We used 1/4 tsp measuring spoon to pour the vase filler into the ornaments. This will weight them down, a lot. Be mindful of how heavy they get.
To create our glitter ornaments we used Pledge Floor Care and fine glitter. You can see the instructions we followed here. I couldn’t believe how easy it was. And it truly works, our ornaments show no sign of losing their glitter.
For everything else we used our fingers to shove the decorations in. Messy fun. They had an easier time getting everything in their ornaments with their tiny fingers than I did.
I used the hand attachment for my vacuum and cleaned the table off that way… I disinfected the table afterwards, but vacuuming it just seemed like the fastest way to clean it up.
This was a fun hour or so at the table making a mess and making some Christmas ornaments with my girls.
I did crazy glue the tops in place after we were finished, the vase filler one is a bit heavy and I didn’t want the top coming off.
