Fabric Scrap Christmas Ornament

Looking to make some homemade holiday ornaments? Here’s how you can make your own homemade Christmas ornament out of fabric scraps.

Materials Needed:

  • Fabric Scraps
  • Butter Knife
  • Ornament hook
  • Styrofoam Ball
  • Ribbon

With the butter knife, push the end of your fabric scraps into the styrofoam ball so that they stay in place.

Continue to do this until the ball is covered. Experiment and enjoy this. You can’t really mess it up. But if you do, just do it over.

Bend the ornament hook and push the two ends into the ball. Place your ribbon through the little opening you have, and push the hook until it is pressed into the ball as far as it will go.

Voila! You have a great keepsake or gift! And these cost me nothing, because I received all the materials from someone on Freecycle! However, the materials are very inexpensive should you have to buy them.

Now it’s your turn. Share your Thrifty Christmas ideas for a gift, meal, decoration ect… It can be something you can make, or a deal you’ve gotten!
