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.

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.
