24 Unique Christmas Ball Ornaments to Make
Plastic and Glass Ball Ornaments
You can buy plain, clear glass ball ornaments at the store. The best part about these DIY ornaments is that they look classic but you can fill them, paint them, or find other ways to decorate them in either traditional or modern ways. Similar to the glass ball ornaments, DIY ball ornaments made of plastic are sold empty and clear, so you can decorate them as desired. The benefit of using plastic is that sometimes they open in half so you can do more than with the glass versions. Also, when they fall, there’s much less chance that they will break. That makes them incredibly kid-friendly and easy to work with.
