DIY Vintage Tinsel Christmas Ornaments

Tinsel Ornaments

These DIY vintage tinsel Christmas ornaments really don’t need a step by step DIY – it is so easy! But here it is anyway:

Tinsel Ornaments


Vintage or new glass tree ornaments
Tinsel garland
Metallic pipe cleaners
glue gun

Tinsel Ornaments

To assemble cut a short piece of tinsel garland – about 3″. Apply some hot glue around the stem of your ornament. Carefully place the tinsel on the glue tucking in the garland as needed.  Use a toothpick or pencil to press the tinsel into the glue.  (I burnt my finger twice doing this so please be careful!)   Trim any unruly tinsel if you want. (Note, that last part makes a mess!)

Tinsel Ornaments

To make the hangers, wrap one end of the pipe cleaner around a pencil to make a small hook.  Slide the other side through the ornament wire hanger.  Wrap the other end of the pipe cleaner around the pencil creating an “S” shape.

Tinsel Ornaments

This is a little addicting – be ready to keep yourself from adding tinsel garland to everything around you.
