Start with one so-boring-you-can-hardly-see-it clear glass ornament.
Remove the top...
Stuff it with paper shred, or cut up tinsel, garland, yarn, etc.
For this one, I used green craft shred. You may want to use a pen or a knitting needle or something along those lines to distribute the stuffing once it is inside the ornament. Then, replace the top...
Use the paint markers to personalize them any way you'd like.
Make a few more... here's one with cut up icicles.
You can even decorate them with simple pictures... anything you can draw... I don't have one, but I bet some of those vinyl decal things everyone else seems to have would also be great here... For this one I stuffed it with cut up pieces of red metallic garland.
You can use an ornament hook to hang them or make a ribbon hanger. I just used ornament hooks because these are going on my tree, but if they're for a gift you may want to snazz them up with ribbon.
And that's it! You're done! Nice and easy!
The last one on the left is one that I filled with blue yarn. I hope this gave you lots of great ideas and that you enjoy the rest of Haul Out the Holly!!

Cute idea, Cecily! I especially like the red garland filled ornament. These would make great Christmas party favors.
