Glitter Pom Poms Ornament

We love pom poms in our house! They make a great craft stand by to add to a mural, a wall hanging or collage. Before we started our next handmade ornament, my daughters and I talked about what we could place inside of the clear ornament, you can only guess...pom poms! I thought to myself, you know what, I think it would work...low and behold it did! But one word of warning, make sure that the clear ornaments that you purchase, the top of the ornament, right underneath the part where the holder comes off, that it is large enough for what ever you are placing inside, will fit. The ornaments were really very simple to make and inexpensive.

While we were creating our pom pom ornaments we started brainstorming on ideas of what we could place inside the remainder of our glass ornaments. We wanted to share with you some additional ideas.

If you have any ideas or things that you have done, please comment, we would love to hear from you.
  • Glitter pom poms
  • Sparkle tulle
  • Confetti
  • Snowflake glitter
  • Place tiny pine cones into the ornament and add the artificial snow
  • Tinsel
  • Potpourri. You would need to crumble the potpourri up fairly fine in order to fit it into the neck of the ornament. In order to have the potpourri to release the scent you might need to hang it next to a light on your tree to warm up the potpourri.
