Sparkle Flower Ornament

by Julie Theophanes

Gather

scissors
fake flowers (make sure any hard parts are small enough to fit through the ball ornament's opening)
glue
silver sequins
clear ball ornament
unsharpened pencil
ribbon

Go

1. Cut off stems from individual flowers.
2. Glue sequins randomly on the flower petals. Let dry.
3. Pull the metal top off the ball ornament and set it aside.
4. Push the flowers into the ball. Use an unsharpened pencil to arrange the flowers inside.
5. Replace the metal top of the ornament and tie ribbon around the top. If you wish, glue a small flower on the center of your ribbon bow.
6. Hang it on the tree or wrap it up for someone you love!
