To make these ornaments we used:

To start making the ornaments, F used a foam brush to spread Mod Podge around the insides of a plastic ornament. Regular craft glue works fine but I think Mod Podge dries just a little bit clearer and neater. F didn’t coat the whole of the inside so I did have to finish it off for him.Sprinkle Ornaments - such a fun way to make tree decorations!

 

Then he poured sprinkles into ONE side of the ornament.Sprinkle Ornaments - such a fun way to make tree decorations!

 

Then we closed up the ornament, and he got to shake, shake, shake!Sprinkle Ornaments - such a fun way to make tree decorations!

 

Open it up and check if there are any gaps. Add more sprinkles and shake again until the gaps are covered and there are loose ones inside the ornament. Discard the loose sprinkles. Actually I should mention at this point that kids definitely shouldn’t eat any of the sprinkles that may have come into contact with the glue. If they really have to eat some, maybe reward them some after they have finished making the ornament and have clean hands.

Leave the ornament to dry in the open position. Once dry, close it up. You may need to remove a few sprinkles that have settled near to the join first. Then thread a ribbon through it and hang on your tree!
