Fun and Entertaining Christmas Ornament

Fun Popcorn Glass Ball Ornament

This is such a FUN IDEA that I had to share it! I saw this on Ornament Girl.

The popcorn was NOT put into the glass ball AFTER it was popped. 

The popcorn was put in BEFORE it was popped.

That's where the fun starts.

Put 1 tablespoon of popcorn kernels in a GLASS ornament ball.

(It HAS to be a glass ball because a plastic ball will melt. 
I bought the glass balls at Michael's Crafts Store.)

Don't put the metal cap on the ornament. Instead, put the glass ball with the unpopped popcorn in it in a brown lunch bag and twist the bag shut.

Place in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes depending on the size of the glass ball and the strength of the microwave. I listened for the popping to slow down...

This was a trial. I was afraid it might break the ball so I thought I'd try it out with a few popcorn kernels. It worked and the glass ball didn't break! YAY!!

So then I did another one with a whole tablespoon of unpopped kernels...

This was a lot of fun. I showed everyone who came on Saturday and they were all amazed at how this was done. My granddaughter, of course, wanted to see how it was done so we had to make one while she was here. She was amazed!

Christmas ornament making is in full swing over here. I love making Christmas ornaments so you will be seeing lots of them over the next month...

Hope you are having a great November.
