When it comes time to deck the halls, there isn’t much that beats decor of the homemade variety. And these DIY Christmas ornaments are kind of the bees knees. Whether you make them with your kids (yep, they’re totally child friendly!), or after you’ve tucked them in for the night (for those perfectionists out there, I feel ya), these golden beauties are an absolute must.
Cut out ornament and snowflake shapes with the cookie cutters, and place on another sheet of wax paper to dry overnight. Press a pencil tip or chopstick into the top of the ornament to form a hole. Check on them every so often and flip over if the edges start to curl up, so that the ornaments dry flat.
Dab a bit of hot glue on the pointed end of your toothpick and insert into styrofoam ball. Work section by section, inserting toothpicks as close to each other as possible. Continue adding toothpicks to the ball until it is completely covered on all sides.
