Tip: We used 22 toothpicks per ornament, but you can use more or less.


  • Toothpicks

  • Craft glue

  • Small paintbrush

  • Spoon

  • Silver glitter

  • Metallic cord


  1. Dip 1 end of a toothpick into glue, and insert into a foam ball; repeat, making your way around the ball until you have a circle of 8 toothpicks. Continue working around the ball in circles.

  2. Use paintbrush to apply glue to toothpicks and ball in sections, and spoon glitter over to coat. Let dry.

  3. Glue silver beads or glass balls to ends of toothpicks. Let dry. To hang, make a loop with the cord, and tie it to 1 of the toothpick ends below the bead before gluing.
