Christmas Flower Ornament Instructions

This ornament is easy to make and only takes a few minutes. Make them for friends and family for the holiday season.

Step one: Create a flower by joining the points of eight Swarovski teardrop-shaped 8mm rhinestone flatbacks. Adhere them to the ornament using a bit of E6000. To avoid a mess, use a toothpick to apply the glue to the rhinestones. When the glue has set, apply a generous dab to the back of a light Siam SS34 and place it in the center of the flower. Allow the glue to dry and repeat on the opposite side of the ornament.

Step two: Between the two flowers complete the design by centering a 10mm Swarovski chessboard Crystal in the diamond position, flank that with two more evenly spaced SS34 Light Siam rhinestones and two 8mm teardrop Crystal flatbacks with the points facing center. Repeat on the other side of the ornament.
Approximate time: Less than one hour
