Well, I’m back. I can’t quite believe it either. But I just have too many more Christmas crafts, decor ideas, and inspiration to share with you all…. So I’ve decided to extend my series to 12+ Days of Christmas instead of just 12!  Today I am here to share a super quick and easy DIY project that you can easily whip up in an evening or a quick burst on the weekend: these simple & stunning DIY Snowball Ornaments. They are the perfect thing to add a little sparkly winter wonderland feel to your Christmas tree!

To make these I used:


The styrofoam balls, a paint brush and ribbon laid out.

To make these I simply brushed my decoupage medium over half of each styrofoam ball at a time, sprinkled the diamond dust over top of the foam ball, and then set it aside to let it dry for a few minutes. I then came back and repeated the process on the other half. If you sprinkle your diamond dust over top of a plate or a piece of paper it is easier to put your excess back into the container afterwards (because we never want to waste!).

As I mentioned, I simple used a push pin to add some pretty ribbon as hanger, and plopped them up on the tree…

Done! I love the sparkly slightly glittery and winter wonderland feel that they add to our blue, rustic natural tree. They really do look like actual icy snowballs {which we never get around here…}.

You might even have all or most of these materials on hand – I did. I always have a few extra foam balls hanging around in my Christmas Craft stash from year to year… waiting for inspiration to hit.

If you haven’t been following along with this series, then this is what I have shared so far this season:
