Last year I added white paper lanterns as ornaments to my Christmas tree. They looked gorgeous because they glowed from within. I was able to attach the tree light up inside the lantern. They were the prettiest thing I have ever put on my tree! This year my tree will be decorated with white glowing paper lanterns again… but with a twist. I’m frosting them so theses ornaments glow from within and sparkle on the outside!
I’m just one of 31 bloggers that are sharing a Christmas ornament diy for…
A big thank you to Diane at AN EXTRAORDINARY DAY, Mary Beth at CUPCAKES AND CRINOLINE, Malia at YESTERDAY ON TUESDAY and Stephanie at THE SILLY PEARL for all their hard work putting this great, creative linky party together and inviting me to join in!
It’s not too early to start some fun, Christmas diy’s!
If you are looking for the most easy, simple, anyone-can-do-this, breathtaking Christmas ornament… you have found it! Creating these snowball inspired ornaments takes only minutes… and when they are on a tree… oh my! They glow and sparkle and are so unique!
The camera really does not do these ornaments justice.
Let’s make these pretties!
- Materials: paper lantern, assorted size, Epson salts, glue or Mod Podge, old paint brush. I got my paper lanterns from Wholesale Paper Lanterns. They are very inexpensive!! I used the 3 inch lanterns in this post.
- Brush glue on to the paper lantern and roll in Epson Salts. Cover the entire lantern.
- Let dry completely
*NOTE: The lanterns can now be ordered (they were out of stock). They are back ordered, but the company will be getting them in next week.
Hot glue your bow of choice to the top of the lantern. I’m using black and white check again this Christmas! I adore black and white for Christmas!
Fix the ornament to the tree by slipping the wire next to a light into the fitted socket at the bottom of the lantern. PLEASE USE ONLY THOSE SMALL TWINKLE LIGHTS THAT DO NOT GET HOT. ANY OTHER LIGHTS MAY NOT BE SAFE.
Then push the little light up into the paper lantern.
I’m making a tree full! Are you joining in?
