Decorating the house for Christmas is an activity that excites me a lot, that’s why I always start to think about what I want to do well in advance. This time I want to help you with great ideas to decorate your tree and the whole house, starting with very creative ones Christmas balls.

If you are tired of putting together the same little tree every year, with the old inherited ornaments, already a bit battered and old-fashioned, I tell you that there is an inexpensive and original way to give it a new “look” that will make it look more beautiful than never. These are transparent Christmas balls.

Here are many ideas that you can combine with lights and ribbons so that your tree and your Christmas arrangements are the center of attention in the upcoming parties.

Transparent Christmas balls

First of all you should know that there are several types of transparent balls. There are those of blown glass that are totally closed. They are very cute combined with other balls or colored accessories.

Then there are the ones with a metal cap on top, which you can remove to fill the balls with whatever you want, close them and leave them ready to hang.

There are also the balls that open in half; These are generally made of plastic or acrylic and allow to put inside more voluminous and elaborate things that would not enter through the small hole of the previous ones.

Finally you will find some that have a large central opening, special for placing objects that require oxygen, such as candles or small plants.

Knowing then the different types of transparent balls that exist on the market, you will then know which one to buy depending on the use you want to give it.

All are quite inexpensive and you will surely find them in many websites or physical stores specialized in decoration.

The rest is up to your imagination. And I bet you that no matter how much you make it fly, you will not be able to imagine everything that I am going to show you next.

1. Iridescent Glass

Starting with the most basic, these blown glass balls are very delicate and very subtle.

They will be beautiful in a very leafy tree with white lights and silver ribbons, or if you prefer, accompanied by balls of many colors, because their iridescent effect makes them very combinable.
