A Step-By-Step Guide

     Let’s get to work! This delightful project is not only a great way to infuse your home with the enchanting spirit of Christmas but also promises a pleasant and enjoyable crafting experience.

     Get ready to immerse yourself in the joy of crafting beautiful Christmas tree ornaments, adding a touch of magic to your holiday season. Now, let’s dive right into the step-by-step tutorial and bring your creative vision to life!


     Step 1:

     Let’s begin this festive craft by carefully cutting out two different sizes of Christmas trees from light and dark green-colored soft felt sheets. This will add a touch of holiday magic into our transparent plastic ball ornament!

     Step 2:

     Using a needle and thread, we skillfully sew the Christmas trees together, making sure to leave a small opening on the bottom side. This opening will allow us to fill the trees with silicone granules, which will add a lovely weight and texture to the ornament.


     Once filled, we sew the opening shut, securing the enchanting scene within. And behold! Our finished Christmas trees now bring the joyous spirit of the season to life!

     Step 3:

     To add a snowy base to our ornament, we take a circular piece of round tile from chipboard and give it a fresh coat of white paint. This snowy canvas will provide the perfect base for our festive creation.

     Step 4:

    With careful precision, we glue the completed elements, including the Christmas trees, onto the snowy white base. This step allows us to artistically arrange the elements and bring our vision to reality.

     Step 5:

     Now it’s time to add an extra touch of winter whimsy! Using a special artificial snow paste, we delicately apply a snowy texture to our ornament. To enhance its magical allure, we generously sprinkle glitter over the snow, creating a sparkling spectacle that captures the essence of the Christmas holiday season.

     Step 6:

     With our composition complete, we affix it to one side of the transparent plastic ball using strong adhesive. As we gently close the ball with its other side, our masterpiece is securely enclosed within:

     Step 7:

     To add an elegant finishing touch, we can now adorn our ornament with a beautifully decorated red ribbon. This final addition adds an extra dash of festive charm, completing the enchanting transformation of our Christmas tree ornament!

     And there you have it! Our magnificent Christmas tree ornament, crafted with love and creativity, is now ready to grace any holiday tree or serve as a cherished gift for loved ones!

  1. Unique Ideas for Personalized Christmas Decorations in a Transparent Ball

     Not only can you replicate the given step-by-step ornament in a transparent ball, but you can also let your creativity soar and invent a variety of different Christmas decorations within the ball!

     Here are a few tips to inspire you and make each Christmas tree ornament in a plastic ball unique and personalized, especially if you plan to use them as gifts:


  • Using a Transparent Plastic Star:

     Use a clear plastic star as the base instead of the circular ball. Fill it with glitter, tiny ornaments, or delicate snowflakes to create a captivating celestial scene within the ornament.

  • Needle Felted Christmas Trees:

     Instead of using soft felt sheets, try needle felting green wool to create miniature Christmas trees to arrange into the transparent ball. This technique adds a charming texture and a handmade touch to your ornaments.

Tip: Here in EM ART online store you can find a wide variety of wool for felting and the needed hobby tools for your felted Christmas decorations!

  • Wooden Decorations:

     Incorporate wooden decorations shaped as Santa Claus, deer, angels, snowflakes, or other festive symbols. These wooden elements can be painted, glittered, or left in their natural state for a rustic feel of your Christmas tree ornament.

  • Customized Messages:

     Add small handwritten notes or personalized messages inside the transparent ball. This adds an extra touch of thoughtfulness and makes the ornaments truly special when given as gifts.

  • Miniature Figurines:

     Include miniature Christmas figurines that hold sentimental value or represent the recipient’s interests or hobbies. This personal touch will make the Christmas decoration even more meaningful.

  • Theme-based Ornaments:

     Create a cohesive theme for your ornaments by using specific colors, motifs, or symbols. For example, you could have a snowflake-themed ornament with various sizes and designs of snowflakes inside the ball.


     As you can see, when it comes to personalizing your Christmas tree ornaments in a transparent ball, there are endless possibilities!
