#7 - Mod Podge Ornaments

12 Days of Homemade Ornaments.

Mod Podge Christmas Ornaments...

I really like these! I'd love to make a bunch of map paper ones just to keep in a bowl all year long.

For this project, gather together some Styrofoam balls.

I inserted a wire stick into each ball so that I would have something to hold on to while I glued the paper to the ball.

I cut strips of scrapbook paper and then made tons of little squares.

I poured Elmer's glue into a bowl and thinned it a little with some water.  Then I dipped the paper in the glue and started covering the ball. This went pretty fast.

I sat them out on the back porch in the sun so they would dry faster.

I brought them inside and hot glued some twine for a hanger. And then I painted them with gloss mod podge to give them a little shine. I let them dry overnight.

These look really pretty and I'm so happy how they turned out.
