Acrylic blanks are a super fun blank canvas for holiday crafting. But once you have decorated them how do you use them? I have come up with four easy ways to use acrylic ornaments to decorate your home for Christmas.
HOW TO USE ACRYLIC ORNAMENTS FOR CHRISTMAS
WHY USE ACRYLIC BLANKS IN YOUR DECOR
Acrylic is more durable than glass while still providing transparency, so you get the look of glass without the risk of your kids or your cat shattering your Christmas decorations. The blanks come in a huge range of shapes and sizes to suit any craft project, and they are very affordable, giving you more bang for your buck than some other craft surfaces.

WAYS TO DECORATE WITH ORNAMENTS
Hang Acrylic Blanks on a Tree!
This is the most obvious use of acrylic blanks for Christmas! Once you have decorated the blank with paint, vinyl, glitter, etc. add a length of ribbon or twine. Then you can hang the ornament directly on the branches of your Christmas tree!
Decorate Holiday Gifts with Acrylic Ornaments
Because they lay flat, acrylic blanks make wonderful gift tags on your holiday presents. Tie the blank to the bow to serve as additional decoration or as a unique name tag.
Add Ornament Blanks to Your Family’s Stockings
If your Christmas stockings aren’t already personalized, you can create beautiful stocking markers with acrylic blanks. Simply clip or hang the blanks from the loop of the stocking.
Use Decorated Acrylic Blanks as the Final Touch on a Place Setting
Place a beautifully decorated acrylic blank on each place setting of your holiday meal table. Not only will it add a handmade touch to your tablescape, but it will make a lovely party favor for each of your guests.
