My local Michael’s had the clear, plastic globe ornaments on sale this month. Like seriously almost free on sale. I kept eyeing those balls every time I walked into the store, and truth be told, I was there every day for about a week so I was staring them down quite a bit.
Those clear little balls held so much inspiration for holiday decorating and everyday celebrations, that I haven’t been able to get them off my mind. I’m still thinking of all the ways I could use them on our Christmas tree and at parties year round.
I know some people hate those clear globes, but take a look at my list of clear globe ornaments 10 ways. It just might change your mind.
Simple, snowy white Christmas. So elegant.
Because I am obsessed with bottle brush trees and love simple, clean pictures. Fill with a dash of artificial snow and a mini bottle brush tree.
Filled with beach sand and tiny, little shells. A Christmas ornament made of vacation memories or for Christmas by the sea.
Perfect for using up the scraps of yarn which are plentiful in my house.
A bit of white and a bit of sparkle, a lovely mix.
Fill with your favorite book passage or Christmas song. This would be a lovely gift for a newlywed couple’s first married Christmas if filled with a passage read at their wedding or their wedding invitation.
Sometimes you just need to go au natural, a bit of moss, a few pinecones and some fresh clippings of pine.
Hand folded cellophane stars, with a few metallic stars thrown in for cheery measure. Oh so lovely.
Fill with any Christmas trimmings for a festive table.
The ideas and inspiration for these clear globes is endless. Need some more ideas?
- Fill with a length of curled, sparkly ribbon for beribboned prettiness.
- Fill with glittery pom poms for bright pops of colour.
- A globe filled with irridescent buttons would be gorgeous.
- Fill with jewel toned sparkly seed beads for a delicate bit of sparkle.
