The tree that we bought is kind of small, so I bought small balls, too. I wanted transparent ones, but they only came in big sizes :/. I got these ones instead, which are ok, but have a pearled shade I don't like much.
So, these are the materials I used:
- Transparent Christmas balls.
- 2 bags of 10mm pom poms.
- 1 bag of 5 mm pom poms.
- Colorful construction paper.
- A shredder.
- A hole punch.
- A bow craft punch.
I bought the balls, the bow punch and the pom poms at Michaels. And I'm pretty sure you can find everything at Walmart, too.
First off, you need to remove the metal tops off the balls, which can be done without trouble ;).
And then fill them up with whatever you want!
I tried different combinations. I filled one ball with red and green pom poms, I mixed a couple with both big and small pom poms and then I filled one with only white pom poms.
I filled the rest of the balls with bows ...
Shreds of paper ...
And paper dots (that I made with the hole punch).
Putting the metal top back is a piece of cake :p.
Hope you liked the idea! ;)
Happy midweek, folks! ;D
