Turn a symbol of the season into beautiful wall art. I used miniature glass ball ornaments to create a Christmas tree to decorate my home with this winter. This DIY Ornament tree art will look so pretty displayed with my other holiday decor!
- Darice 25mm Glass Ball Ornaments
- Studio 71 8×10 in Wood Wall Panel
- Darice Screw Eye Hook
- Darice Star Tree Topper
- Xyron Creative Station
- Decorative Holiday Paper
- Gold Paint
Step 2. Trim a piece of decorative holiday themed paper to fit the front of the wood panel (8 inches by 10 inches). I used my Creative Station to add permanent adhesive to the back of the paper and to attach it to the wood panel.
Step 3. Arrange the ornaments on the panel to form a tree shape. You will need one ornament at the top, then add one ornament to each row, until you reach a row of 5 ornaments. Place a single ornament at the bottom to make the tree trunk.
Step 4. Make a small hole where you made the pencil mark. I used a sharp awl to do this. Then place the eye hook in the indentation and rotate it slowly. It will “drill” into the surface.
Step 5. Assemble the DIY ornament tree. First, remove the cap from the end of the ball ornament. Slip the metal clasp of the ornament through the eye hook, then reattach the gold cap and the ornament. Repeat will all of the ball ornaments.
The ornament balls move slightly, and I love the whimsical effect that’s created by the movement of this piece! It would make a great addition to your mantle, or hang it on the wall to add some holiday spirit to your home decor. Have fun crafting and creating wall art for the holidays!
