Filled With Confetti

These confetti ornaments are a party for your tree, and they're a fun DIY project for the kids, too. Use store-bought confetti or have the kids punch out some colorful paper with a hole punch. Carefully fill each glass ornament with the confetti pieces. Add in a few metallic stars for extra holiday sparkle.

Gilded in Gold

Give your tree, or in this case fiddle leaf fig plant, a touch of modern sparkle with hand-painted ornaments. Apply gold gilding paint with a medium-sized brush and a light touch. Gently spread the gold paint across the ornament to create soft and beautiful brush strokes.

Magically Marbled

These beautiful glass marbled ornaments hold a secret: they're made with nail polish! To make, fill a plastic container with 5 to 6 inches of hot water, then drip nail polish on the surface of the water. As it spreads, quickly dip the glass ornament into the water. Apply as many layers of nail polish on each ornament to achieve the amount of marbling you want.
