Here are some ideas to spruce up your Christmas tree balls from Better Homes and Gardens:
— Insert small gold, silver and white pom-poms in a clear glass ball ornament for a sparkly, energetic look.
— For a quick cover-up, stick strips of washi tape to the ball, overlapping and smoothing them as you work your way around.
— Add ribbon stripes to an ornament. Remove the ornament cap and cut strips of ribbon. Hot-glue the strips, beginning at the base of the ornament. Tuck the ends of the ribbons into the top opening and glue into place. Replace the ornament cap and tie a bow around the hanging loop.
— Unwrap and chop crayons into small bits. Place one inside a clear glass ornament. Melt with a hair dryer, turning to coat the sides. Repeat with additional colors.
— Blend a few colors for a marbled effect. Fill a large disposable tray with water. Spray two colors of coordinating spray paint into the water. The paint will float on the surface. Dip a clear glass ball ornament in the paint. The paint will adhere to the ball, creating a marbled effect.
