Well, I must say I originally wanted to call this post Scrappy Balls....but decided against. Every time I say that phrase I start singing the Adam Sandler Lunchlady song and where he says "sloppy Joes" I say "scrappy balls"!!
Oh...I am so easily amused.
Anyway, I love to upcycle and find new uses for old things especially those things deemed "trash".
Here are a few ways to take your craft trash and turn it into treasure and make a few cute ornaments in the process!!
Easy Idea #1
You know all those pieces of lace, ribbon, etc you trimmed off your sewing project, or package you wrapped? Save those tidbits and shove them into a glass ball for a festive little ornament with hidden treasure!
For Ideas #2 & #3, I used these balls (pictured below).
Easy Idea #2
If you paint like I do, keep those palettes with your "leftover paint". Tear the paper into pieces and decoupage your balls! I mean, make a lovely festive ornament! :)
I finished it off by rolling in glitter and tying a bow at the top.
Easy Idea #3
Scrap fabric? Not enough to make something out of...just tear into strips and glue on to a ball for a lovely handmade ornament!
What do you think? I love these festive balls - for hanging on the tree or tying to a package!
