May Arts/Helmar Blog Hop!


Welcome to May Arts Ribbon and Helmar Adhesives Blog Week! We’re partnering with the talented team at Helmar to bring you 2 full days full of design and project inspiration.

Holiday time is the perfect occasion to pull out all the stops on sparkle and shine. I’ve got a quick and easy project that fits both of those categories beautifully and it won’t break your piggy bank!

Here’s your supply list:

(with so many beautiful colors to choose from you can match any décor!)

Clear glass ornaments –craft store

Tree branch
White spray paint
Spray Glitter (optional)

You can make dozens of these of these beautiful ornaments in no time at all which is a big bonus during the busy holiday season.

Remove the metal tops from the ornaments. If you’ve never done this, just gently squeeze and pull.

Place a dab of Helmar 450 Quick Dry on the inside of the lip of the bulb.

Cover the base of the bulb with more Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

Wrap the Metallic String vertically, then horizontally around the ball until it’s covered to your liking. When you’re pleased with the result, just cut your ribbon and seal it to the bulb with a dab of Helmar 450.

Replace the silver tops then add more Metallic String to use as a hanger to decorate your Christmas tree or create a beautiful centerpiece for mere pennies.

I spray painted some tree branches then gave them a bit of sparkle with spray glitter.

You can even wrap up a couple of these sparkly balls for beautiful, thrifty gifts.

Who says we have to use red and green? I found these pretty boxes at a local discount store this summer. They were 3 for 99 cents! A beautiful May Arts Lace bow (NQ09) and you have a lovely gift for everyone on your gift list from teachers to neighbors and office friends.

Thanks so much for joining us on the May Arts/Helmar Blog Hop!
