DIY Christmas Ornament

Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing a DIY Christmas Ornament that I created using Xyron. This was super easy to make. Adding the sentiment as a sticker made this project even more enjoyable. The ideas are endless as names and specific years could be easily added to the ornaments to personalize as you wish.  I added sweet treats to the ornaments that I made, but you can fill the ornaments as you desire. These ornaments make wonderful gifts and can be tailored to any theme. My super easy tutorial is below. Take a peek.

Xyron: 3" Sticker Maker  
Acrylic Fillable Ornaments
Metallic Shred (Blend)
Hershey Kisses
Metallic Cardstock
Ribbon (Bows, Cord)
Metallic Cord
Berry Stems
Tim Holtz Dies
Die Cut Machine


Step 1: Add metallic shredded paper to the acrylic ornament.

Step 2: Add candy to the ornament and continue filling additional ornaments.
Step 3: Attach top to the acrylic ornament base and string with cord.
Step 4: Run dies and metallic paper through die cut machine.
Step 5: Run die cuts through the 3" Sticker Maker to apply adhesive.
Step 6: Adhere die cut and bow to the ornament.
Step 7: Adhere berry clusters to center of bow. Continue embellishing as desired. Note: These are super easy to make, so have fun creating many...:)
