Sports Themed Christmas Ornaments
These sports themed Christmas ornaments are the perfect gift for any sports fan on your list. Or, if you have a coach you need a gift for, these would work well too. They are very easy to make. And, you can choose the sports theme you like if you have a specific one in mind. Or, do a variety of sports like the ones pictured here.
So, whether you want baseball Christmas ornaments or football Christmas ornaments, this easy DIY sports themed Christmas ornament will work for you. Just choose which sports themed ball ornaments you add to your clear ball.
What else can I fill these with?
If you’re not a sports fan, no worries, there are plenty of other things that you can put inside these clear plastic balls. I have seen them filled with Hershey Kisses, Pony Beads, rose petals, curling ribbon, colored feathers, faux pearl beads, mini gift bows, and even red and gold jingle bells.
How to make personalized Christmas ornaments
So, these sports themed Christmas ornaments have inspirational sticker sayings on them. If you would rather use someone else’s name, like your child, spouse or coach, you will have to find stickers with their names on them. You can often find them at places like Walmart. Or, you can make the stickers yourself.
Sports theme Christmas tree
If you want to do a completely sports theme Christmas tree, you can make these in a larger quantity. Or, you can start with a smaller tree. You might also want to add this football light set.
These supplies were originally found at Hobby Lobby. So, you might be able to find them there yourself. You can check at your favorite craft store if you can’t. Or, if you can’t, you can order these online to make these sports themed Christmas ornaments.
- Clear plastic or glass ball ornaments
- Mini Christmas sports ornaments (similar)
- Hot glue or tacky glue
- Inspirational wood stickers
Sports themed Christmas ornaments directions
This craft was created using mini ornaments which are now out of stock at Hobby Lobby and I cannot find the exact ones on Amazon. So, if you find them locally at your store, you can use those. Be sure to remove the tops from the ornaments if you get those. Or, I have linked to mini beads in sports themes that you can use instead.
- Remove the cap from each ornament. Set aside carefully so they don’t get lost.
- Drop the beads/ornaments into the clear ornament and replace the cap.
- Using hot glue or tacky glue, attach the inspirational word to the outside of the clear ornament. Remember that if your child is helping you, they should not use the hot glue gun unless they are older.
- Allow to dry completely before packaging or displaying.
