EASY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

Hello and thanks for visiting today!!  I have a super easy DIY Christmas ornament to share with you today!  People won't believe you made it yourself!

Isn't it so pretty!

All you need is a Styrofoam ball, ribbons, glue dots, stick pins and beads.  I started by marking my ball with pencil, to use as a guide for my ribbon.  I added some glue dots to the ribbon because they stick so well and don't leave any stickiness on the ornament.

I cut the ends of my ribbon, as you can see in the picture, so it would be neat and not bulky.  I then added the silver ribbon on top of the white and I used the red ribbon as an accent all around the ball.

Then I added these gorgeous red and silver beads to stick pins that have a pretty crystal on top.  I stacked the red and silver beads on the stick pin and stuck them into the ball.  I did this in a circle all around the top.  I think it looks like a crown!
CRAFT TIP:  When working with something round, like this ornament, put it in a cup or a bowl to hold it straight for you.

Add some cord to the center with one of the stick pins, so your ornament is ready to hang.  Was that a super easy DIY Christmas ornament or what!
I hope you make some easy DIY Christmas ornaments for your tree!
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!  See you in 2016!
