Plastic dome Christmas Ornament




You will need:
Disposable 2 piece plastic wine glass
Small ornament, package tie, etc
Bit of polyfil stuffing
Bead or styro ball (I used a glittered styro bead from garland I found at Michaaels)
Length of cord for hanging.  I use 6 to 8 inches.
Ribbon & flower trim
Braid trim for bottom edge
Glitter
Fine gauge wire to secure bow
Also:
Spray adhesive
Hot glue gun & sticks
Large eye needle
craft knife (Exacto)
Instructions:
Shape the polyfil into a rough donut shape.  Spray a bit of glue on the wine glass base & affix the cotton  to the base leaving the center "knob" exposed.   Very lightly spray adhesive on the polyfil & sprinkle with glitter.




Hot glue the inverted  wine glass over the base after tucking in the polyfil.  I glued only in a few areas of the rim---didn't glue the entire rim.
Glue the braid trim around the base, beginning & ending in the back.

The beads I used were 5/8 to 3/4" in diameter.  you can use a plain styro ball, spray it with adhesive or white glue & cover it with glitter.  You can also use a wooden, plastic or glass bead.  

Fold the length of cord in half & knot the ends.  
If you're using a bead, thread the cord thru the opening, glue the knot to the bottom of the bead & hot glue the bead to the top of the inverted wine glass.
For the styro bead, knot the cord & thread the folded end thru the needle.  Press the bead down over the inverted wine glass stem to make an impression.  Use the craft knife to carve an opening & press again on the stem to form it.  push the needle thru the opening & out the top of the bead.  Pull the cord thru, leaving the knot inside the opening.  Hot glue it over the top of the stem.

Fashion a bow from the ribbon, glue it to the front of the wine glass stem (Be sure the figure inside is facing forward) & secure the flower to the bow.
