Fab-YULE-ous Ornaments

It’s Christmas time people! Cue Mariah Carey and bring on the champs with a candy cane rim! I have waaaaay too much fun decorating for Christmas! Also, I am one lucky wifey because my hubby doesn’t care what color our house is decorated, as long as I am happy.  Smart guy!! This year I am going for blush, black and white.  Eeeek even typing that gave me chills! This project is such a fast and chic update to your holiday decor.

It’s so simple and it only took me 10 minutes to do 8 ornaments.


Things you will need:

Plain ornaments (any size) I purchased mine at Michaels.  They came in a pack of 8 for $5!

Ostrich feather trim or any feathered trim you like.  I bought my trim at a Fabric Store in Downtown LA.  Each ornament takes approx 2 5/8 inches of trim.  I purchased 2 yards because I have a few ideas for the leftover…stay tuned!

Hot glue gun





Step 1:

Measure  2 5/8 inches of trim.


Step 2:

Trim as many pieces as you need so that they are ready to go.


Step 3:

Place a small dab of glue on the start of your trim.  Then firmly press it against the ornament cap.  Continue to add glue and press all the way around until your last piece crosses over your starting piece.  Be careful, the glue dries fast.



These aren’t just for your tree…you can add them to a present, hang them from a bottle of wine or champagne or add them to personalize a wreath.


What colors are you using to decorate this holiday season? I’d love to hear what color combo you use to recreate this project.  Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Crafting,

  • Marta Darcu - You’re such an inspiration! You always make it look like so much fun, it motivates me to dash out to my local craft store and get busy. I also appreciate the fact that you can make inexpensive items look so glamorous.

    I am in the process of moving this holiday season and to know I can “have my cake and eat it to”, is exciting. Being able to make these simple and inexpensive bulbs to make my tree look beautiful and my family feel the spirit of the holiday season is priceless!

    Thanks you Christina, you’ve made our holiday feel warm.ReplyCancel
