"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments

Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments

This Christmas, add a little sparkle to your Christmas tree with Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments. If you want to create your own DIY Christmas crafts this year, consider working on this quick and simple project. Be sure to add jingle bells and pretty ribbon to the top of your ornament for a more regal look. Crafts with glitter may seem daunting (and messy), but this ornament is actually a breeze. You only need a little bit of loose glitter to make an impact, so this project takes almost no time to clean up. Use a variety of colors to create an arsenal of seasonal ornaments.

Materials:

  • Jingle bells
  • Felt
  • Snowflake die cut
  • Crystal sprigs
  • White ribbon
  • String
  • Ornament
  • Posie
  • Silver ribbon
  • Can of Krylon paint

 

Instructions:

  1. Take top off of ornament, and spray the inside of ornament. Shake paint around and let it dry upside down to let any excess paint come out. Give it a second coat once dry.










     
  2. Spray silver jingle bells with Krylon paint. Since I had three different colors, I set up a spraying station outside and painted them in all 3 colors. Turn the bells and paint again. Keep turning until they are completely covered. Once painted and dry, tape off the ornament and "paint" glossy accents on the top half. Sprinkle it with silver glitter. 





  3. Tie white sheer ribbon to top of ornament. Use glue gun to glue crystal sprigs on an angle. Die cut snowflake and adhere to center of sprigs.






     
  4. Cut silver ribbon into thinner strips using fabric scissors. Fold in half. Thread two jingle bells with white string and tie around silver ribbon. Cut ends to desired length. Use glue gun to adhere to center of snowflake.




     
  5. Adhere posie to side of jingle bells.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a cute idea. It is a little bit messy, but the end result looks quite nice. It is something that you can decorate any way you like. You can personalize them for each member of your family, or just leave them as is. Now to find some clear balls for this!

These are very pretty. I am wondering if there is a method to make the inside be glittered? Could you take some diluted white liquid glue that is infused with glitter or snow glow effect and swirl that around inside? That way you would still get the sparkle without the mess once it is dry and the top replaced. These are very pretty as presented though and would make a very lovely gift! Thanks for sharing!

I am intrigued by this project. I like the idea of spray paint on the inside of the ornament. I bet I could use two colors and achieve a swirl affect. The pictures are great and really help me understand how the bells are made sparkly. I really appreciate the time it took to explain this project. I think it was done better than a few of the others I've seen here. I love it!

These look lovely, but the instructions seem to be incomplete. Is the glitter on top a type of paint, or has it been immersed in glue or paint and then dipped in sparkles?? Maybe I'm missing something. :(

Hi there, I have contacted the project designer and will update the project with more information when it is available. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
