Ribbon Weave Ornament
3/4 inch wide ribbon
Cut strips of ribbon into approx. One inch long pieces. You can use one color or mix it up, it's up to you.
Begin at what will be the center of your ornament.
It helps to draw a line around the ball so your rows will be straight. Fold one piece of the ribbon in half and pin it to the Styrofoam ball. Work your way around the ball placing the next piece of folded ribbon over the first piece, covering the pin and leaving the folds showing.
Work your way up and then below your center row till the ball is completely covered.
Add a ribbon hanger to the top with a longer piece of ribbon.
You can add a bow to the top or you can make ribbon tails and string beads for a little added sparkle.
The possibilities are endless! You can recycle those old satin ball ornaments that have Styrofoam centers, just remove the strings.
