DIY Christmas Tree Ornament
Sometimes all it takes is some odds and ends, a bit of lace and some pearls to make something striking. This rustic Christmas tree ornament is effortless to make and perfect for decorating.
For this project I used:
1 clear plastic ornament
E6000 or Gem Tac
Flat back pearls size 10ss
Crystal 12ss rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
Begin by measuring the length of the ornament from top to down around the bottom and up to the other side. Cut 2 pieces of lace this length. I used E6000 to glue the lace into place and then Gem tac to glue the pearls. I generally prefer to use Gem Tac, but last time I used Gem tac on lace it yellowed. Glue lace onto the ornament and allow to dry.
Although you can’t see very clearly from the picture, I alternated between pearls and crystal 12ss rhinestones on the lace and used just pearls alongside the lace.
Please a drop of glue slightly smaller than the pearl on the ornament. With your wax tipped tool, pick up a pearl and gently press it into the glue drop. Repeat the process until your ornament is embellished.
Allow to dry for 24 hours. Tie a piece of jute string along the top.
