Every year we would like to offer something beautiful and handmade to my kid’s teachers and this year I wanted something romantic for their home decor, something cute with flowers! Ornament Balls perfect for gifts and perfect to use them every time of the year and not only for Christmas!
What are we going to need:
– Plastic Ornament Ball (I took it from here)
– Dried Flowers
– Hot Glue
– Beads, pom pom, stars or whatever we like to use it for decoration
To be honest my idea for these romantic gifts were my materials I had! Oh yes… because sometimes I do not have a clue what to create and the greatest idea to solve this, is to search your materials. The other think is to search online for new materials and my favorate place to do this this is on Dimiourgise. So, when I swa these plexiglas ornaments I fall in love and the idea just pompted up! My cute helpers were next to me, as it was one of the activities hidden in our advent calendar… Prepare handmade gifts for your teacher!
The procedure is really easy! Opean the ball and put inside dried flowers. Close it again and start decorating it with ribbons and beads and stars and pom pom or whatever you have available and want to recycle.
The quality of the specific ornaments is great so it was no need to use hot glue to close them.
And I have to say, that when you start creating the first one, it is really easy to proceed to the next one and use different type of materials and create something totally different. We have created 5 ornaments for every teacher we have (school , ballet etc) , but I will purchase more balls because we will create the same gifts for some friends of as. Really cute, don’t you think?
And what else I love in these ornaments? You can fill them with chocolates and offer them as party favours! Hmmm… I am already thinking of my princess birthday party….
