For quick and easy DIY Christmas decorations use textured fringe ribbons to spruce up antique ornaments that have seen better days. Starting at the bottom and working your way up, apply hot glue to a glass ornament and attach a ribbon (12″ to 1″ wide). For the ribbon to overlap, keep adhering to ribbon rings about 12″ above the prior ring. To make the fringe of the tinsel seem right, trim the end. In case you miss any surface space, paint your ornament in advance in the color of your ribbon.

3-D Paper Decorations
Create multidimensional, ultra-chic colored cardstock. Five paper strips totaling two 1.25″ x 10″, two 1.25″ x 7″, and one 1.25″ x 5″ must be cut out to make this ornament. Then, at the top and bottom of each strip, punch a 1/4″ hole. Place the tiniest paper in the middle of the stack, followed by the medium-sized strips, and then the largest strips. Line up all of the strips on one end, insert a wire or string through the holes, and secure it with a knot. The strips can then be spread out by repeating this procedure on the opposite end. For more sparkle, attach tassels or beads to the ornament’s base.
Stamped Clay Ornaments
You’ll need to make your salt dough for this craft, as well as gather some glass items for stampings, such as doilies, vintage crystal cut glassware, or items with patterns of leaves and pine needles. Before making impressions with the patterned glass, roll out your dough on wax paper. Use cookie cutters to create the shapes and use a straw to pierce the top. Your works should be allowed to dry overnight on a wire rack covered in wax paper. In the morning, flip them over so the other side can also dry.
