Dec 11: Folded Fabric Ornament

Only 14 days to Christmas! Have you finished your shopping yet? I certainly have a few things to go, but I’m ready to take on the crowds. Today’s project is a fairly simple project with results that look a lot more complicated than it is. It’s another Christmas ornament that uses folded fabric to get a lovely effect.

Items Needed:
-Styrofoam ball
-Stick pins
Various Colourful fabrics cut into strips
Thick Ribbon
-A Ribbon to use for a loop or an ornament hook.

How to:
1. Pin on end of the fabric and start folding the fabric into triangles on the Styrofoam ball. Secure each point with more stick pins and along the base of the triangle. Continue until ball is covered.
2. Take the wide ribbon and circle the ball to hide edges and stick bins.
3.Attach ribbon loop or ornament on top and hang on tree.
