Here's a sublime selection of sparkly Christmas ornaments for the do-it-yourselfer. Most kits, priced from $8 to $54, come with a three-inch satin ball and an assortment of pearl-head pins, metallic braid, gold filigrees, bugle beads and iridescent sequins to re-create one of some 200 designs. These rococo fantasies will either bewilder or bedazzle; the craft itself is strictly for the fastidious. Catalog $3.50. (River Road, Point Pleasant, Pa. 18950)
