Growing up, our Christmas tree was a hodge podge of ornaments. Nothing really matched, and the majority of the ornaments were handmade by my brother and me. But our tree had so much sentimental value and I hope someday my family’s Christmas tree is just the same.
College was the first time I had the chance to decorate my own tree, and I held fast the DIY tradition! I wanted something super cute so I made DIY leopard print ornaments! Add in glitter ribbon and these are perfect for your glam Christmas tree!
I actually made these ornaments more than 5 years ago! They are still holding up. The instructions and project are simple!
- Cut the tissue paper into small one inch sections, then apply them to the glass ornament with mod podge.
- Add a layer or 2 of mod podge on the finished ornament to make sure none of the pieces of tissue paper will pull up. I took the top off and set them upside down on wax paper to dry.
- After they dry, add the glitter ribbon to hang them on your Christmas tree!
That’s it! You could use any tissue paper you like, but I still love the leopard print! They aren’t on our big Christmas tree; rather they hang on a small tree in my office and I love them!
Just be sure you call them Christmas ornaments or Christmas balls. Growing up, I would call them Christmas BULBS and it drove my mom crazy!
Be sure to share these DIY leopard ornaments with someone who loves animal prints!
