Christmas time is my favorite time of year. I love the twinkle lights and magic of it all. I adore the fact that the songs being played everywhere are about the birth of Jesus. But it can be easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of the season, too busy to slow down and enjoy all that Christmas brings with it. Crafting is one of those slower-paced, deliberate things you can do to slow down. But the crafts need not be complicated, like these easy Chalkboard Christmas Ball Ornaments.
Chalkboard Christmas Ball Ornaments
You only need 2-3 things to make these easy personalized Christmas ornaments.
- clear Christmas ball ornaments AND black chalkboard paint
- OR black matte Christmas ball ornaments
- white permanent marker OR chalkboard marker
To make Chalkboard Christmas Ball Ornaments, simply write one name on each black Christmas ball ornament with a white permanent marker. If you can’t find already black ornaments, paint your own before adding names!
Your handwriting can be as fancy or as plain as you like. You can add little stars or dots to mimic snow.
Seriously, this is one of the most simple personalized Christmas ornaments you can make. Plus they can add drama and help ground your Christmas tree decor! We’ve used ours for awhile already.
