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



  1. Step 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. Step 2

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

  3. Step 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.
