We finally put our Christmas tree up, it has an eclectic and rustic look in the décor but that is exactly what I love the most. It contains ornaments that we have made ourselves and others that we have bought at different vacations or special places that bring up wonderful memories. Some of my favorite ornaments are the glass red ornaments with various glittery designs on them. I use these to fill the spaces between the other decorative ornaments. I decided to make some simple yet fun and beautiful decoupaged Christmas ornaments.
These are beautiful, traditional and one of a kind. Great not only for my Christmas tree but also a great idea for a fun gift this season. The options are endless with all the beautiful Christmas scrapbook paper out there!

How to make decoupaged Christmas ornaments
- Remove hanger from ornament.
- Apply mod podge to the surface of the clear plastic ornament and apply the strips of the scrapbooking paper. Cover the complete surface area.
- Allow the first coat of mod podge to dry, then apply a second coat and sprinkle some glitter over the last layer of mod podge. Allow to dry.
- Apply mod podge to the hanger, then apply glitter and allow to dry.
- Assemble hanger and ornament back together once both pieces have fully dried.
I like the rustic style and the traditional colors. The glitter looks perfect against the lights of the Christmas tree.
