Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Now that it’s time to take down the fall decorations and start getting ready for Christmas, I thought I’d do a post on these bow and rhinestone ornaments. 

Making ornaments is one of my favorite crafts to do during the holidays, and they also make great gifts. I’ve noticed people really appreciate when you take the time to make them things by hand yourself. It shows you put some time and care into the gift.

What you will need:

Step 1: Cut off about 6-8″ of string, put the string on the ball head pin and dip the end of the pin in the adhesive. The adhesive helps the pin hold the weight of the ornament and remain inside the ball when you hang it on the tree.

Step 2: Insert the pin into the foam ball.

Step 3: Glue on the rhinestones. This is the easy part, and here you can decide how you want your colors spread out. To glue the rhinestones, I put a little dab of glue down with the paint brush, then push the rhinestone on top of the glue. Eventually you’ll have the whole foam ball covered. I try to let the rhinestones dry for a couple hours before adding the bows, but you can probably do it now if you’re careful.

Step 4: {Optional} Insert a small silver pin into your bow. I try to shove them in behind one of the flaps of the bow so that you don’t see the head of the pin. There’s a photo below to explain what I mean. Then insert them wherever you’d like! I put four bows on mine.

Step 5: Now all thats left is to tie off the string of the ornament! The reason why I suggested at least 6-8″ of string is to save you enough room to easily make a bow or knot to tie off the string. I typically do a bow, then add the adhesive to the knot of the bow to ensure the bow can’t come untied.

That’s it! Pretty easy and straightforward. All the supplies I used are listed below if there’s anything you need to get started. Simply click on the photo of what you need to be directed to the product on Amazon. I hope you enjoy making these ornaments! Happy holidays! 🎊
