We've got just the thing for a starter tree: a box of handmade ornaments so delectable, they'll conjure visions of sugarplums. And because they're crafted from shatterproof spun cotton—coated in craft paint, then glitter—you can gift a full set knowing they'll stand the test of time (and pets, and toddlers).

Step 2

Wrap a 7-to-8-inch piece of floral wire with floral tape; bend at center to create two "stems." Glue faux leaves to wire at top; let dry.

Step 3

Poke a hole in top of each ball with floral wire. Remove, apply a spot of craft glue to ends of wire, and reinsert. Let dry. If desired, twist a loop of gold-filled wire through stem for hanging.
