Today I am sharing a quick and easy way to add a little pizzazz to your Christmas ornaments.  These would be perfect to make for gifts and create a theme for your own decor.  If you have followed my blog for very long, you know I have a love for easy projects.  I went to Hobby Lobby and loaded up on Christmas  Scrapbooking appliques.

I purchased a box of the frosted ornaments last year that I never used, so I wanted a fast way to get them ready for the tree.

It doesn't get any easier than peel and stick.  The hardest part is making sure you keep them straight.

I also purchased a pretty set of alphabet letters.  This is a great way to personalize an ornament.

 I also had some smaller clear ornaments that I used with glitter.  I added Pledge floor cleaner to make the glitter stick.

I love this snowflake applique.

This letter came from a large bag of green and red glitter foam letters.  This one would be great for kids to decorate with on foam balls.

I had this applique from previous projects.  Since I put a lot of gold ornaments on my fireplace, I made of a few these using gold glitter.  


That's my quick and easy Christmas tip, now it's time to see your amazing creations!

Dear Kathy,
I decides to link our traditional Croatian Christmas decor - nativity scene.
Nativity scene is placed under Christmas tree and is very important part od Christmas celebration. The assemble at Christmas Eve, right before we go to the Midnight Mass in church, and last untill Epiphany.
Every day, the figures of Three Wise Men are moved toward Jesus's crib so they finally meet at Jan 6th.
I hope you will enjoy this detailed presentation of Nazareth village at the moment when Jesus was born.
Happy holidays,
Ana@carpe_diem
