The Christmas balls are traditional ornaments that in the past symbolized the fruit on the Christmas tree, but today they are one of the funniest elements when it comes to putting the decor together this time of year.
Although the more traditional Christmas baubles come in gold, silver and red colors, over the years these dots have gained versions for all types of decorations and today offer a wide variety of colors and textures for your Christmas party. The changes are so numerous that they no longer need to be hung on the tree: they are everywhere, from the trees to the table decorations, garlands and garlands that can be hung on the walls and doors.

Use these ideas to work with different materials, textures and colors that have everything to do with the decoration you have planned for this year: do everything with glue and ribbons to complete the package and make a completely new ornament receive.
