Skill level: beginner

Don't have time for any last minute holiday projects?  This one will change your mind.  Take undecorated glass balls and decorate with beads threads and tape.  Fast, fun & simple.

Materials needed:

  • Purchased plain ornament balls (we bought an inexpensive box of six matching glass balls from a discount store)
  • Treasure Tape shapes: star, heart or circle
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik metallic threads to match your balls (pick colors in #12 Braid and 1/16" Ribbon)
  • Shallow pan or tray


  1. Lay a Treasure Tape shape on the center front of your ornament ball. Remove the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
  2. Decorate with the metallic threads by outlining or making your own design. Press the thread into the tape to make sure it adheres.
  3. When thread decorating is complete, lay the ornament in a shallow pan or tray and cover remaining sticky areas of the tape shape with the Diamond Beadlets.
