Christmas Balls

This last week I bought some empty Christmas ball to fill for an upcoming sale. I am always looking for something a bit different. They are plastic. They are very clear. I had planed on getting glass but theses where so clear  I though it would eliminate the breakage problem.  I was going to get a different shape as well but for some reason a flat circle cost twice as much.

First you pop of the top and then add what every you like.

You can add anything that fits through the hole. This is silk throwsters waist fluffed up.

When it’s full you pop the top back one and your  done.

I used Blue Faced Leister Curls, some mohair curls, silk hankies fluffed up and some throwsters waste. in a few I added some sparkly angelina.

    I haven’t seen it before either, but it would make a great gift for felters besides attractive ornaments! Thanks for sharing.

    They are excellent quality plastic – they look like glass – and the non-breakability of them is a good selling point.
    Very pretty with the wool – I like the addition of the angelina because a bit of sparkle is always attractive.

    Great idea Ann – I agree that these look like good quality. I have seen some that were not as nice.

    A good idea Ann and those baubles really do look like glass. I might look for some of those, the g’children would enjoy making them. 🙂

    very creative idea. I have to fill a stocking for someone this year, so I think I will add one or 2 of these. People love Christmas ornaments, and more so when they are handmade by someone you know. thanks
