Do not hate me. I started my Christmas preparations and gift making in July because well…. sometimes I just feel the need to get ahead of the game! I’m not one of those people though that listen to the music in July *cough* Hannah *cough* I prefer to wait until December to actually start getting in the mood. But the gift making and prep can start whenever I have the time and the energy 🙂
Today’s Christmas prep was making ornaments! This was extremely fun and just a little time consuming… Time consuming because the tiny little sequin pins are just that, tiny.
The materials you need to make this craft are:
- styrofoam balls (I bought mine at the DollarStore)
- Ribbon in two colours, plus one to make the chord to hold it (I bought mine at the DollarStore)
- Appliqué/sequin pins (can be found at Michael’s – www.canada.michaels.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-MichaelsCanada-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=C_nw0931&cgid=products-yarnandneedlecrafts-sewingnotions
This idea came from a Pinterest post I saw. Now I do not understand the language AT ALL, however the photos that accompany the article are enough explanation on their own.
I did not add the little bows on top but it is something I am thinking of doing.
Here are a few photos during the process and after 🙂
