Do you have a craft supply that you like to buy even when you don’t need it? For me it’s ribbon! I love ribbon, every time I see beautiful ribbon that I love, I buy it! The positive side is I always have ribbon. The Dollar Tree is one of my favorite places for ribbon (and lots of other stuff too). The glitter ribbon looked so pretty and the sparkle really caught my eye. I imagined a glitter Ribbon Christmas Ornament sparkling on the Christmas tree.
I’m excited to work with this amazing group of bloggers on this months Dollar Store Craft Challenge.

Paper Mache Ball Ornament 3.5 inches

Let’s Create a Glitter Ribbon Christmas Ornament from the Dollar Tree
I found the paper mâché ball ornament at Hobby Lobby, it was $1.20 so just a little over a dollar. The cost of the ornament total was a little over $3 which is still a steal and I have glitter ribbon for other projects. I also made this super cute Glittery Christmas Ponytail Holder too.
To get started paint your ball ornament white with craft paint. I used a drink tray to hold the ball as I painted it, it worked out perfectly. The ball took 4 coats of paint.
Next I measured around the ornament to find out how long to cut my ribbon. The 3.5 inch ornament is about 11 inches around.
I hot glued the ribbon to the top of the ball and wrapped the ribbon around and glued it again. Then I did another ribbon around and just kept going.
The sparkle is magical on this ornament. The sparkle will be all over you too!
This is what the sides look like.
To hang the ornament on the tree I hot glued a green ribbon to the top and added a red glitter bow.
The Glitter Ribbon Christmas Ornament only takes a few minutes and is easy, cheap, and simple. It would make a great glittery gift for someone special.
