Now my creative juices were flowing and I was looking for ideas everywhere and thought hey why limit myself to just one item! After thumbing through dozens of magazines and googling like crazy , I found a picture of a homemade holly ball (holiday cheer, was the magazine) and thought to myself why don't I make homemade Christmas tree decorations!
Once that one was done I decided to do another, because it only took me 5 minutes
|#2 with 2 fabrics|
|Christmas ball #1|
To Create these, I cut a piece of cotton fabric large enough that it would wrap around the Styrofoam ball, I then used the string that I had chose as a decoration and tied it around the gather, then in a continuous strand around the ball for a decorative touch. Using hot glue to secure it. to cover the hot glue spot I added embellishments.
Each ball cost aprox. $4 to create, a far cry from the $10 - $25 dollars department stores are charging for a large scale ball! Well worth the 5 minutes to make!
