I used vintage buttons, glitter, salt, feathers, ribbons and even popped popcorn popped to fill plastic ornaments. The ornament top is sealed with hot glue. The ornament is decorated with scraps of fabric, bows, ribbons, and stickers of doves, small Christmas ornaments, etc.
I make my children an ornament with some of their small childhood pictures, or other childhood memory items that they could hang on their tree within the plastic ornament. It is very enjoyable to look for items that could be put into a plastic ornament that would make one happy at the Christmas season when it is put upon the Christmas tree.

Making a Popcorn Filled Ornament:
Enjoy making an ornament, especially if it has special meaning to you. For example if it is filled with items from your family or a memory and it will become a treasure to you.
These are so pretty, they look so fancy and you can really make a bunch of them at a very low cost.

I live at the beach and constantly pick up interesting shells and rocks. I have been wanting to use them in an interesting craft and decided I would start looking for very tiny shells and very tiny rocks.
I am seeing clear ornaments as a popular trend this year. Many stores are selling these Christmas confetti ornaments for $5-10 each. You can totally make some yourself.
