Ornament #1
Curling Ribbon Celebration Ornament
Supplies needed: Bulb, scissors, ribbon
Directions: This ornament is great for kids to create and can be done in any variety of colors. All you need to do is cut a length of ribbon, use your scissors to curl it, and snip it into smaller chunks. Simply stuff the ribbon in the ornament, shake it to move it around, and replace the hanger. You can use a combination of your child’s school colors, your favorite team’s colors, or holiday colors to make it special and unique.

Ornament #2
Marvelous Marbled Ornament
Supplies needed: Bulb, craft paint
Directions: For this ornament, choose a bright color of paint and pair it with white paint. For our ornament, we used green paint and paired it with white. Remove the hanger from your ornament and pour a few drops of each color inside. Replace the hanger and give the ornament a good shake. As you do, it will create a marbling effect that looks quite artistic! Allow it to dry and you are ready to display.

Ornament #3
Glamorous Glitter Ornament
Supplies needed: Bulb, craft glue, craft paint, glitter
Directions: When you are done with this ornament it will sparkle like a diamond. To make one, you can first paint it with any color paint you choose. We used white for the one that we made. Then, while the paint is still a little tacky, dab on some craft paint. While the glue is damp, go ahead and sprinkle the ornament generously with glitter in the color of your choice. Shake it gently to remove any lose glitter and you are ready to display!
