What exactly is the name or brand of the "micro-bead mixture"? I can't find it but would love to make them!

Great idea, but I would use drilled beads that come variety sizes and attach to ornament with straight pins. You can also add different types of sequins. First spray paint ornament and/or add ribbon with straight pins. You can add ribbon, lace to make hanger.

This is a nice project for sure and pretty easy as well. But I only gave it an okay because in my house there are lots of children who like to look at and occasionally play with the christmas ornaments. Double sided tape is only so sticky and so the beads are apt to fall off which isn't a good think with babies around. I would sugest something a tad bit stickier. These balls really are pretty

nice,easy,simple,low cost.
