Rainbow Ornament Mantel
Here's a colorful display sure to brighten spirits in any home this Christmas. The secret: DIY foam ball "ornaments" are spray-painted in a gradient of color.
This idea comes from our friend Kara Whitten. These oversized, DIY glittery Christmas ornaments look lovely two ways: lined up on a mantel or hanging from a Christmas tree. You can even use one as a tree topper for a whimsical look. Her extra tip: "If you do not have juice lids for the ornament caps, cut a long rectangle and a circle from a piece of gold card stock and create an ornament cap by gluing the rectangle strip around the circle, punch two holes in the circle, then thread the wire through to create the ornament loop."
