Hello and thanks for visiting today!!  I have a super easy DIY Christmas ornament to share with you today!  People won't believe you made it yourself!
Daniella Hayes Ornament 5
Isn't it so pretty!
Daniella Hayes Ornament 1
All you need is a Styrofoam ball, ribbons, glue dots, stick pins and beads.  I started by marking my ball with pencil, to use as a guide for my ribbon.  I added some glue dots to the ribbon because they stick so well and don't leave any stickiness on the ornament.

I cut the ends of my ribbon, as you can see in the picture, so it would be neat and not bulky.  I then added the silver ribbon on top of the white and I used the red ribbon as an accent all around the ball.

Then I added these gorgeous red and silver beads to stick pins that have a pretty crystal on top.  I stacked the red and silver beads on the stick pin and stuck them into the ball.  I did this in a circle all around the top.  I think it looks like a crown!
CRAFT TIP:  When working with something round, like this ornament, put it in a cup or a bowl to hold it straight for you.

Add some cord to the center with one of the stick pins, so your ornament is ready to hang.  Was that a super easy DIY Christmas ornament or what!
I hope you make some easy DIY Christmas ornaments for your tree!
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!  See you in 2016!

Hi and Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop with Tombow USA and Clique Kits! We have a great lineup of Holiday projects created with Tombow USA Adhesives and the Clique Cards Holiday Edition Kit! In addition to all this amazing inspiration we have two amazing super prizes!

The kit we received is AWESOME!  There is paper, cardstock, cardstock stickers, 3D stickers, wood pieces, vellum and a little bag with buttons, ribbons, embellishments and bakers twine!!
Here is a picture of the kit!  I forgot there are stamps too!!  Totally awesome!

I made this card with the kit and Tombow Adhesives.
I started by using the My Colors Cardstock in red and cutting it to 5.5"x11". I folded it in half and used it as my card base.  Next I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Photo Play Dear Santa paper pad to 5.25"x5.25" and adhered it to the base with Tombow's new super strong Mini Power Tape, that you can now get exclusively at Michael's!  I added a tree sicker from the Photo Play Dear Santa Element Sticker Sheet and the Deck the Halls stickers from the Pink Paislee Yuletide Stickers.  I used the bakers twine, that is also in the kit, and tied a bow on each end so it would hang across the top of the top of the card.  To adhere it to the card, I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  Finally I added the tinsel bow to the middle of the bakers twine.  So fun!  

We have two awesome prizes for this hop!

Use the Rafflecopter to win one of these prizes! Giveaway ends December 20th, 2015. 

I hope you enjoy this hop!!
