So, this post has been pretty popular lately, thanks to the great linky parties that I linked up with three years ago! At the time I shared this idea, I said to use either glass or plastic fill-able ornaments. This many years later, I will tell you that I made my ornaments with the large, glass balls, and they are way too heavy for my tree. I would highly recommend using the plastic ornaments.
The good news is that they sure are a pretty way to fill a large bowl. Underneath, I have some extra gold ribbon as a nest-of-sorts. It just shows through a little in a few places.
I added some pretty pine cones, and a glittered, silk poinsettia stem. These Vintage Sheet Music Ornaments are still one of my favorite DIY Christmas ornaments. If you need a last-minute idea, they are SUPER-easy, and you can find the directions HERE.
