Sparkle Ingredients 

Ready to make these sparkly Christmas decorations? All you need are a few ingredients...or should I say...supplies.

First, you will need a good movie (this could take a few hours depending on how many balls you're making), snacks, and a glass of wine - only if you're 21 or older, obv. 

Next you'll need:

Making Your Fuchsia Christmas Balls

Making these trendy Christmas ornaments takes a little imagination and lots of patience (hence the movie and wine). 

  1. Set up your rhinestoning station: cover surfaces with a table cloth or use a paper plate to prevent spills. Believe me when I say that glue will get EVERYWHERE. 
  2. Set up your ingredients as you like.
  3. Plan out your pattern. 
  4. Get out a dollop of glue. 
  5. Get comfy and start gluing. 
  6. Hang to dry when finished - let set for about 24 hours. 

Remember that a little glue goes a long way! If you make a mess of your ornament with glue - let the glue get tacky and then scrape it off. Your ornament will look just like new! 

Enjoy how your sparkly balls reflect in the glow of your Christmas tree. 

Bloopers

What would a serious Christmas ornament tutorial be without bloopers? Check out the clips that didn't make the final cut [ahem] the ball jokes....

It's worth a watch....or at least we think we're funny!  

Want to buy instead?

Would you prefer that these trendy Christmas decorations arrive at your door rather than spending hours gluing?
