So here are a few ornaments, I know everyone has their own way , usually using beads with wire for ornaments . .....lets make some glittery balls for the tree.
These are polymer clay, crimping beads and a small bit of curled fine wire for hooks.
You can use any shape bead you want. Remember these nail decorating jars we all went hunting down in the dollar store?
They sure do have a lot of free micro glitter and fancy shapes ;)
If your using beads you will have to attach the hook after, if your using poly clay, then shape apply hook or hole and bake.
Hold the bead like this and apply clear nail polish, or a coat of glue in thick quantity. If doing duel colors only apply where the first color goes, dry, then do other side.
The sprinkle whatever nice micro glitter or shapes you like onto your new ornament. Maybe appling little beads in a pattern.
While the shapes and slivers may require you to pat the ball a couple of time to get it smooth, the micro glitter is the best bet, don't forget you can apply two colors if you are so inclined or three!!!!
Maybe a few decorative designed beads or animals, look through your old jewelry and charms as well!
