I know, there have been a lot of craft tutorials lately, but hey, I'm in a crafty mood lately. Hopefully you all aren't sick of them yet. This one was inspired by a decoration that I found for sale online. It was a porch decoration, but I made mine smaller for inside. You could use larger ornaments to place them outdoors too though, the instructions would be the same. The cost? $4 each with materials from the Dollar Tree. Obviously, if you have spare ornaments and candle holders around the house, this could be a free DIY project.
3 Large round ornaments
3 Medium sized ornaments
3 Smaller ornaments
Spray Paint (optional)
Hot Glue Gun
Spray paint a glass candle holder with metallic paint. You can skip this step if you already have a metal holder you want to use or you want it to remain plain glass.
Remove the hardware for hanging the medium sized ornament and hot glue it to the large bulb you just placed on the candle holder.
Remove the hardware and hot glue the last ornament on top of the other two that are already on the holder. I decided to add a bow to the top of mine, but you can use a pointed ornament for the top of just leave it as it is.
* Just a tip, be sure to center the ornaments as you place them one on top of another and use plenty of hot glue so they don't come loose.
