Pink and Black Chic Ornament- Tutorial

If you haven't entered the Scrapbook goodies Giveaway, click on "Current Giveaway" above to enter!



A few days ago, I saw some foam balls in my closet that I bought at the Dollar Tree a year or so ago.  I racked my brain for a cute ornament I could make with it.

I wanted to make an ornament that wasn't your traditional Green and Red, sooooo here is what I came up with!

Here's the list of supplies you will need:

-white foam balls (dollar tree!)
-Modge Podge (Michaels, Joanns, hobby lobby)
-fabric (ripped into 3/4 x 5 inches long (I like the ripped look)
-buttons
-ribbon
-glue gun

Sorry I didn't do step by step pictures, but this is such an easy craft.  Who needs pictures, right?

1. Cover the ball with strips of fabric coated with modge podge.  I wasn't real picky about whether the fabric was smoothed down.  I just wrapped it around the ball.  Do this with strips of fabric until you cover the whole ball.

2.  Let dry overnight. This is an important step.  It takes about 8-12 hrs to dry completely.

3.  Glue on coordinating buttons in random places.

4.  Glue a ribbon bow on top, with a coordinating ribbon for the loop.  I glued the loop under the bow.

5.  Your done!  Let it dry completely of course before you hang it on your tree.

I like how it turned out.  I wish I would  have used glossy Modge Podge, but it is still pretty!  Have fun with it!
