    Remove tops from additional ornaments; fill ornaments about 1/2 full with water, using funnel (water may cause outside surface of ornament to crack).

For ornaments at side of bowl, attach to bowl with small amount of glue. Place flowers and evergreen sprigs in water-filled ornaments.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Christmas ball ornaments also make charming place settings. Write the name of each guest on an ornament with a metallic marking pen. Set one ornament at each place setting and steady it on a vinyl hose washer--that's right, the kind you find at your local hardware store. The washers work great for making the ornaments stay put, and you can spray paint them to match. Remove the tops from the ornaments, and fill about half full with water. Place flowers in ornaments and tie with a decorative ribbon.
