You Will Need

  1. A Christmas ball, preferably with glitter on it so the millefiori pieces won’t slide off as you are sticking them down.
  2. 1-2 packets of Mandala Art Millefiori (Available in the craft aisle at Bunnings Warehouse)
  3. Mandala Art Clear Acrylic Glue (Available in the craft aisle at Bunnings Warehouse)
  4. A piece of ribbon, approximately 20cm, to hang your decorated millefiori ball on your tree.
