The disco ball is my favorite part of the tree
I just love these tabletop topiary ornament trees. SO EASY!
I made these last year and found these kissing balls (really, that's what they are called) at Micheal's during the after Thanksgiving sale. $3.49 each!!! They had the same sale this year. Huge savings compared to the foam balls that can run around $13 for this size.
2 kissing balls
2 small pots
2 dowels 1/2 x12inch
plastic ornaments (or the real ones)
shreds of paper or metallic strips
hot glue gun
I wrapped the dowels with ribbon (easier without wire) and secured with hot glue. I made the bows the same time so I was only really covered in glitter once. I was still a glittery mess during and after the project. Left a glitter trail through the house.
Secured the foam and dowel with hot glue
Added the metallic strips that were left over from a party. That's my pack rattyness again and I found it when I needed it. :)
I placed all the ornaments so they looked symmetrical-ish, then secured with hot glue.
I LOVE THEM!!!
The new house doesn't have a fireplace....boooooo :(
I'm so sad and not sure where to hang or set all this stuff.
