Ribbon Ornament Tutorial

Hi all!
I was so excited to hear about the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments
and absolutely flattered to post a tutorial.
Thank you so much for inviting me over Kristin!

I first saw these ribbon ornaments at The Untraditional Topiary.
I loved the idea and had to give them a try.

I started with styrofoam balls.
I purchased the smooth styrofoam to keep them from shedding.
They worked perfect with the sequins push pins I used.

Next I pulled out my ribbon stash.
I stock up on ribbon whenever it's on sale.

After choosing my ribbon I cut 4-5 inch strips.

Now it's time for the fun to begin!
I started with my first color of ribbon.
Take the ribbon loop and secure it with your straight pins.
I used one pin for the narrow and two for the wider width.

To make the ornament hanger,
I used a longer ribbon strip and secured it with tons of straight pins.

Keep adding ribbon,
the more the better!

Then bling it out a little by adding some fun tinsel. :)

When you think you're through hang it on the tree and admire your mad skills.

So do tell, what do you think??

God's blessings on your day sweet friends, Sarah :D

What a great ornament! Wonderful work. :)

I'm just curious where you purchased the bag of styrofoam balls and box of ribbon as I've never seen any like them before.
