In order to start this DIY I covered my work table with my plaid blanket, made a tea and put on an apple crisp candle and got all of the materials set up for TEA CHRISTMAS BALLS!
I spent a long time looking for the plastic balls that come in halves to use for this DIY but I found them in Michael’s Craft Store for $1.50 each! Which was sweet, but I’m sure any craft store will have something similar around the holidays!
Next I got together the various thing to go inside of the balls like an assortment of teas, and small tinsel novelty balls that I also found at Michael’s.
You may be wondering what that ball of yarn is doing there! That is for the hanging of the balls, and I also had tape and a pair of scissors with me to keep the ball closed. I had a hard time threading my yarn through the small hole at the top of each ball so I used silver twist ties to connect the two!
Basically I just put all of the inner materials inside of the ball…
And then taped the ball closed, before threading the twist tie through the small hole and tying a four=inch piece of yarn around the twist tie, making it easy to hang the balls on any tree!
And that was it! Very easy to make and a sweet low-cost gift for the tea lovers on your list! These balls with about a handful-sized, so you could put small chocolates, toys, or anything you really wanted inside! I chose tea because I love tea and it was a neat holiday idea! I hope this was helpful, and happy holidays!
