How to create your very own rhinestone decorations
These beautiful do it yourself rhinestone ornaments add that extra sparkle to any tree. These ornaments are special because you create them yourself! Take a plain ornament, add some bling and watch as your ornament is transformed before your eyes!
For this project I used:
1 silver ball ornament
12ss rhinestones in rose and peridot
Wax tipped tool
I chose a scatter pattern for this tree ornament beginning at the center and scattering outward. Using your tape measure, mark a line with the chalk around the middle of the ball ornament. This will be your guide when gluing rhinestones.
Most of the rhinestones will be the color peridot with the rose colored rhinestones sprinkled among the green.
When using E600, make sure you are in a well ventilated area. I like to squeeze a bit over a paper plate and scrape up a small amount of glue with a toothpick and apply it to the ornament. Use a drop of glue slightly smaller than the rhinestone.
Pick up a rhinestone using your wax tipped tool and gently press it into the glue. Continue gluing rhinestones keeping the rhinestones near the middle closer to each other while spacing the rhinestones away from the center farther apart. Since this is a scattering of rhinestones, there is no real pattern and no way to do it wrong.
Allow 24 hours to completely dry.
Just like that, you add sparkle and festivity to any Christmas tree!

I have five kids and often feel like I am running a zoo. I love to craft and do so in whatever spare time I have.
