Step 1: Using numbered stickers from 1 to 24 (we used holiday ones, alternating between stars and trees), number the outside of the glass balls.  Now you are ready to countdown to Christmas!

Step 1 is to number the outside of the glass balls with stickers. |

Step 2:  Carefully remove the ornament caps on your advent ornaments and fill them with embellishments, stickers, miniatures, ribbon, anything that reminds you and your family of the holidays.

Note: Make sure when you purchase these items that you find ones that are flexible or fit through the hole of the clear glass ball ornament.  Also, avoid items that are heavy because the objects will move around and can break the glass if banging around inside.

Step 2 is to remove the caps to the ornaments and add small objects inside, such as tinsel, candies, or miniatures. |
