Using Tinsel Without Ruining your Vacuum Cleaner...You Are Welcome




I seem to express more creativity when I know what I want and cannot find or afford it. Today that manifested in this glorious idea. I have a bigger Christmas tree this year than I have ever had before. So instead of a 5 foot tree smothered in lights and ornaments, I have a 7 foot tree that looks a little sparse.

I already have gold balls so I wanted to add silver to make it look even prettier. I walked all over our local store and the only christmas balls they had in boxes of just silver with no other colors were plastic non-breakable ones. I wanted the old fashioned fragile glass balls in a box of only silver. I came home disappointed and empty handed.


But then BRILLIANCE arrived! There on the table right in front of me was a pile of tinsel I did not plan to use this year and my empty clear glass balls that sometimes hold strands of red or green ribbon. I simply stuffed each glass ball with tinsel and now I am strutting around feeling like a Christmas genius!



I really LOVE how they sparkle next to the tree lights! And best of all? NO evil GLITTER involved at all! 


Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can legally wish you a very Merry Christmas and may your creativity over flow this year!

    1. Thanks! Michaels craft store is probably a good place to look. Can't recall where I got them years ago.

  4. This is a great idea! We were just talking about tinsel the other day, amd how strands of it are still wound around our old fake tree in the garage. Tinsel is forever!

    1. Hi Sandi! Tangled tinsel can be just as awful as glitter, right?
