These colour sorted fillable ornaments are a fun way to use up odds and ends of craft materials – and they make pretty decorations, too!

There are so many ways to fill clear ornaments! I decided to add an element of sorting to our filling activity. I used some lovely square fillable ornaments that weren’t too big.
Then I collected as many small craft materials as I could in six different colours: red, green, silver, gold, white and blue. These included:
- Pom poms (the glitter poms from craftprojectideas.com worked particularly well!)
- Jingle bells
Before you start, just make sure there are no sharp edges around the hole of the ornament. You might also like to grab a pair of small tweezers for extracting an item that has been put in the wrong ornament! Kids may like to do one colour of ornament at a time, or do all six simultaneously. This would be great for a group project!
F chose to do them all at the same time. He did make a few “mistakes” but that was more just to annoy me, I think!
They looked very pretty when we’d finished.
I usually decorate our Christmas trees with only two or three colours – so I know that at least some of these will be used every year! I love how the ornaments are a link between our crafty activities and the tree!
