    A few years ago I ran across an easy to use and fun way of making beautiful and various Christmas ornaments. It may be produced for presents and your own personal tree. You can create them in a afternoon together with your kids or friends.

    Materials:

    Styrofoam Balls: choice of sizes, but no larger than a baseball.

    Fabric Squares: variety of sizes as well as types of fabric, try glitzy and velvets.

    Pieces: of ribbon, beads, sequins, buttons, rickrack, costume jewelry, ribbon roses or and whatever else you desire to embellish your ornament with.

    Hot Glue Gun and Scissors: to cut and glue all your equipment.

    Thread: for tying and tightening

    Small Pins and Tacks: to make use of ribbon and beads.

    Basic Techniques:

    Step one:

    Select a gorgeous square piece of fabric. Convey a Styrofoam ball in the center of the square.

    Step 2:

    Take all 4 corners and gather them on the core Styrofoam ball (this is also the best way to pick which size square works best for which size ball).Bring your part of precut thread and tightly wrap it across the gathered area , dab it after some little bit of hot glue so it doesn’t unravel.

    Step three:

    You can now evaluate if you ought to cut the gathered part of the fabric or let it sit. It totally is determined by the way it looks. When the fabric seems too bulky on the bottom then you can shear it flat. If you undertake choose to cut the superior portion off then you must take care of that area having a ribbon rose or beads.

    Step . 4:

    You should come up with a loop with ribbon, or beads on a wire, and fix it in the center of the Styrofoam ball having a pin or tack and again a bit of glue; in the same area where you gathered and cut the fabric. This loop is how you will hang the ornament for the tree.

    Step five:

    The actual real fun begins. Start attaching ribbon or beads or buttons; the embellishments that you’ve chosen. You should use little sequin pins or tacks and stick things in through the fabric and in to the ball. Use a tiny dab of glue; you wouldn’t want anything falling!

    Whenever you think your ornament is complete twirl it around and ensure it’s wonderful from all of angles. Be sure to cover or hide whatever doesn’t look attractive. You can create many different sizes of ornaments. They may be quite light and easy to hang.
