DIY Glitter and Confetti Baubles

DIY Bauble Ornaments

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… bauble ornaments!

When I was growing up, the Christmas trees in my house had everything on them except bauble ornaments. The baubles of that age were made with glass and my parents feared that my siblings and I would break them and accidentally cut ourselves.

Thankfully, baubles are now made with plastic. What’s even better is that they are inexpensive and convenient for crafting. I had to create my own DIY project for them!

Here’s how to make glitter and confetti baubles:

Remove the top portion of the bauble.


Fold a piece of paper in half, unfold it and sprinkle the glitter and confetti into the middle. Fold the paper once again and pour the contents into the ornament.

Run a piece of ribbon through the top and you’re done!

P.S. I didn’t know that baubles were called baubles until last week. I just thought they were named ball ornaments. O_o
