Craft Idea: DIY Christmas Ornament

An easy way for you and your kids to decorate for the holidays

Christmas is right around the corner. Make some cherished memories by creating some easy Christmas ornaments to hang on your tree.

Start off by tearing colorful tissue paper into small pieces. Cover a clear glass or plastic ball ornament with glossy Mod Podge. Arrange the pieces of tissue paper in any way you would like. Seal your creation with another layer of glossy Mod Podge. Thread a festive piece of ribbon or fabric through the loop of the ornament and tie in a knot. Hang to dry. You can also customize your ornament with glitter glue or a photo.
