Steps to Make Glitter Foam Ball Christmas Ornament

  1. Cut the circles into half

    Take one glitter foam sheet circle and slice it into two equal halves. You can draw a line on the material to help you cut them straight or just fold them in the middle and cut over the fold. Repeat the process for every circle.

  2. Glue the semicircles

    Take one semicircle (cut out from the circular glitter foam piece) and apply glue on the glittery side along the diameter.

  3. Fold the semicircle

    After applying glue on the diameter, fold the semicircle and hold it in place until the glue dries.

  4. Repeat the process

    Glue and fold all the semicircles as above. You will arrive at something similar to a half-opened floret or a petal.

  5. Glue the florets

    Arrange the folded floret next to you and start gluing these arches of the same color. Idea is to create a nice semicircle with two arches.

  6. Follow suit for the rest

    Keep gluing arches of similar colored florets to make semicircles from all of them.

  7. More gluing to do

    Once all the small florets are glued together, begin gluing these semicircles one by one to each other.

  8. Attach the semicircles one by one

    Create a colorful pattern by gluing each of the four colors sequentially and repeating it.

  9. A spherical form emerging

    Keep attaching colorful semi-circles one after another and you will see a spherical form emerging.

  10. The sphere is ready

    Glue all the pieces together to form a sphere leaving the center hollow to pass a twine through it.

  11. Let the glue dry

    Cup the sphere in your palms and allow the glue to set it in place.

  12. Add twine and a bow

    You can now put the twine through the opening in the sphere and add a bow on top for a festive look.

  13. Decorate your home with it

    The last step is to make as many as you want and adorn your Christmas tree with these beautiful glitter foam ball ornaments.  Glitter Foam Christmas Ornaments
