12107899_10154366668620961_5529537663500022800_nWelcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop hosted by the amazing Lisa at Honeybearz Designs! This is my 3rd year of participating in this hop. I get so excited each and every year to sign up to participate! I would like to personally thank the amazing Elf Lisa for hosting such a fun event. This year I am doing something different. I am going to post a different DIY Holiday Christmas bulb using simple craft supplies. I hope that you will come back everyday to see all 12 Ornaments. I have been hard at work in Santa’s Workshop to bring you fun projects each and every day! Before we go any further though I want to make sure that you stopped here after visiting our Guest Elf- Melinda be sure to click HERE if you need to start at the beginning be sure to click HERE.

For my last Ornament I knew that it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t use my favorite embellishment medium and that is GLITTER!!!  Or in this case Tinsel! Red and Green, keeping it traditional friends.  Who doesn’t love a little sparkle on their tree?  I know that I do! I am now wanting to glitter Pink bulbs for my Pink Tree that my hubby bought me! Yes, I asked Santa and he delivered, a sparkling pink tinsel Christmas Tree just for me! Whoop Whoop!!! Pics of this fun tree to come later. But lets quickly share this Ornament with you.

DIY Tinsel Christmas Ornament.Madgegillen2Making this was easy! Let me show you what you need to make this tinsel ornament.

  • Plastic Christmas Bulb
  • Red and Green Tinsel Glitter
  • Green Acrylic Paint (optional)
  • White Glue
  • Sponge Paint Brush


How to make this sparkling ball of goodness.

  • Take the top off of your ornament
  • Paint your ornament green (optional)
  • Allow to dry
  • Use white glue (I used Mod Podge) and paint the bulb. *Note I placed the opening of the bulb on my finger and it worked perfectly
  • Sprinkle the Tinsel onto the ornament
  • Allow to dry
  • Place top back onto the Ornament
  • You are Finished, enjoy your sparkling ornament
