Christmas Flower Ornament Recycling Craft DIY

If you search Christmas Pinterest, you will find thousands of Christmas craft ideas and Christmas decor ideas to beautify your home.  However, I’m not sure you will find one easier or more beautiful than this easy Christmas ornament DIY!  The best part is it is cheap because your are using recycled toilet paper rolls to craft this beauty.  If you are planning a Christmas wedding, planning Christmas in July, or looking for Christmas crafts for kids to make as gifts, this is a winner!
You will need:
–  One empty toilet paper roll:
–  Scissors:
–  Three small glass marbles:
–  Red acrylic paint:
–  Red glitter:
–  White glue:
–  Green ribbon:
–  Hot glue:

Here is the video tutorial:
1.  Flatten the toilet paper roll and cut a piece that is approximately 1/2 inch (or less – I don’t measure, so eyeball how wide you want the petals to be).
2.  Cut five petals total.  Put a dab of hot glue near the top of each one and glue to the next petal to secure them in place.  Now it should look like a flower.
3.  Paint entire flower with red acrylic paint.
4.  When dry, paint with glue and sprinkle with glitter.  Allow to dry.
5.  Put a glob of hot glue in the center, where all of the petals meet and attach the glass marbles.
6.  Punch a hole in one of the petals – I used a hole punch – and string a ribbon through and make a loop to hang the ornament.
That’s it!
