Give old glass ornaments a facelift. We decoupaged on a new coat with repurposed gift-wrap and tissue paper.

Paper Globes
These ornaments resemble the paper maché and cardboard ornaments that became popular when glass was scarce.

You will need:

• Glass ornaments
• Assorted pieces tissue paper and lightweight gift-wrap
• A small paintbrush
• Mod Podge decoupage medium

Start by tearing narrow strips of wrapping and tissue paper. Torn edges blend most easily and make a smoother surface.
